CONTEST MONTH: This is the most important month for your students. They will have to balance Grades, Homework, Rehearsal, Home life, Work and additional responsibilities. Eligibility reports should be finalized – if your child is not passing, they will become ineligible to march and perform with the band at games and UIL. We urge that a discussion takes place regarding the consequences of failing classes, as we can only be successful as a program and in competition with a 100% passing rate. We have several students who are willing to help with any class – just ask!
Saturday October 10th – Classic on the Lake (Prelims – Finals) @ Little Elm Stadium
Saturday October 17th – UIL Marching Contest (Division Rankings – all 1’s advance to AREA) @ Standridge
Saturday October 24th – UIL AREA Marching Contest (Prelims – Finals) *top 5-6 bands go to STATE @ Standridge
Car Pool Lanes After Away Games *IMPORTANT*
Hi Band Parents!
We all know that the parking situation and car pool lanes around the band hall are a crazy mess. Usually, by this time of the year everyone has it figured out and it runs as smoothly as possible, but last Friday night there was some confusion and tempers ran a little high. When we pick up the kids after an away game it's usually pretty late and we are all tired. Here are some tips for parking and if we all follow them and use patience and courtesy towards others, we will all be out of there with our sanity intact.
Firstly, cars must only park on one side of the drive. It is not a very wide drive and we need to keep one side open for the football, cheer, drill team and band buses as well as the band trailer to be able to pull through. (Bus and trailer route in BLUE on the attached map) When you come down the drive towards the band hall, please park only on the right of the drive (parent pick up lane in RED on the attached map). We can stack up all the way down to the teacher's parking lot. If the line is already full when you arrive, pull around and continue straight down the drive until you can drive around the circle by the tennis courts and start stacking up. Again, please park ONLY on the right to leave room for cars to pull through on your left (See GREEN line on attached map). If you would like to avoid the car pool line altogether, you are welcome to park in the teachers parking lot (Highlighted in YELLOW on the attached map) and have your child walk up to meet you there. NOTE: The drive that goes behind the band hall where the buses and trailer park will not be open for thru traffic for the safety of the students exiting the buses and unloading the trailer.
