Greetings everyone. My how fast the time is flying by. Here are this weeks notes. There is a lot of information here.
Monday morning is the Heart of the West Pep Assembly. It will be at the normal time between 2nd and 3rd periods. Feel free to dress up for pajama day. Please get out of class at 8:45 to come to the band room just like last time if you are a pep band member.
Monday night – Percussion rehearsal. Mr. Viking is just around the corner. I need a list of names for the program please. Curtis and Sean, will you coordinate and provide to me? Thank you.
Tuesday – Color Guard Pre-Audition Meeting for students and parents. 7:00p in the band room. Pass the word.
Wednesday – Parent/Teacher conferences. Want to make a payment – Bring it, we’ll take it. Need to figure out how to get into CHARMS, we can help you. Want to talk about the Kauffman Concert – let’s talk. What to talk about how to get private lessons – we have names. Interested in a new instrument, we have ideas on that too. Mr. Hupe and I are here for you.
Friday – Home Basketball vs SMNW. 5:30 call time. Black Pep Band. Make sure and wear your Pep Band T-shirt. If you borrowed one, it needs to be washed and returned so you are not charged for it.

Each bands call time is 30 minutes prior to their performance, in the band room.
Normal Formal Concert Black is the required attire for the evening. Ladies, remember no short dresses. The hemline should be 3 inches from the floor. Also, no strapped dresses without a shrug, shawl or some other cover. Gentlemen, BLACK socks with those black dress pants and black dress shoes. If you are not in the correct attire, you will not perform. If there is a question or problem, PLEASE ask before Saturday. We WANT everyone to perform. The concerts are fun and should be a highlight and not stressful. Let’s enjoy making GREAT music together!
Don’t forget – Each student needs to bring one dozen cookies either on Friday or Saturday! THANK YOU!
Bill Thomas and Kevin Hupe
