We will meet right after school for full band practice. No one should leave the school. Head straight to the band hall. We will be going to the field after school lets out. We will make some run throughs then come back inside to go through some stand tunes and the banner.

We will then start gearing up in FULL UNIFORM for this game.

As soon as the game is done, we need to hang up uniforms properly, put away all equipment and roll out as soon as possible. THERE IS STILL SCHOOL ON FRIDAY!!!!!

Everyone needs to be in attendance on Friday for classes as several students need to get or keep their grades up before the big UIL eligibility check on Oct. 5th. Since the game is now on Thursday night, we will have a normal class time start on Friday at 7:50am.

Drumline will practice after school on Friday to get ready for their contest on Saturday.

Contact Mr. Christy if you have any questions.
