Middle school night!
Welcome future MEB members from HF Stevens and Richard Allie MS!
No football this week means no morning rehearsals Thursday or Friday. Instead, we will add:
Thursday 5-7 PM – J block only
Friday 5-7 PM – Varsity (including percussion) only
Uniform bibber pants should be washed weekly. Jackets can be washed as needed. Wash cold on gentle cycle, dry low, hang up.
All students should bring their bibber pants to school on Monday to check hems.
If you have any other uniform issues that we could not correct on Friday, please bring your washed uniform to school Monday.
This week is our first marching competition! We need parents in the stands to cheer on your students! Our first performance on Saturday is at 3:30 PM. We will find out our finals performance time when awards are announced at 4:45 (will be somewhere between 6:30-9:00 PM).
Our band booster parents are hard at work supporting your students! They are in need of 4 new rolling coolers and a utility cart. If you have something like this that you can donate, please bring to the band hall. For any questions or clarification please contact Lorna Tran (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Crystal Hamilton (email@example.com).
Texas regulations require that bands follow No Pass, No Play rules. Any student who fails a class on their report card becomes ineligible on Friday at the end of the school day. Ineligible students are not allowed to participate in any games or contests with the band. Ineligible students are required to attend all rehearsals and will have alternate assignments for game performances. Students can re-gain their eligibility if they pass all classes on the next progress report.
The MEB has been invited to perform for the opening of the new Amazon delivery center this Wednesday. This performance includes only student leadership and selected drumline members. Students will be excused from 2nd-5th periods. Attire is show shirt and jeans.
The MEB needs you! We rely on parent volunteers to help get the band on and off the field quickly (Pit Crew), and staff the concession stand and merch table at home games.
Volunteers receive free entry into the game (subject to host school rules) and entry into an end-of-season drawing for a Visa gift card.
Volunteer opportunities are posted to Charms. For more information, contact volunteer coordinator Lorna Tran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to our volunteers from previous weeks!
