IMPORTANT: Please remove University of Akron Band Day from the schedule and place University of Mount Union Band Day in its place. Due to a scheduling error, we will not be able to attend University of Akron's band day. We currently do not have an event scheduled on September 2nd. Thank you.
Please add these to the band calendar as students have been reminded each day at band:
Aug. 9 - Drive in movie night @ Lynn Drive In - 8:45pm for Spiderman
Aug. 18 - Band Pictures - Report 2:30 @ Band Room, Pictures - 3:15, Rehearsal until 5:30 for Meet the Team
Aug. 19 - Meet the Team - Report 5:00 @ Band Room (Summer Uniform), March to Stadium, Perform Pre-game @ 6:00, then perform our halftime show during the scrimmage
Sep. 2 - TBD: Mt. Union Football Game
Also, this week is a fun theme week for students to dress up together:
Tuesday - Twister Tuesday (dressing like you were caught in a storm)
Wednesday - Senior Citizens/Golden Oldies
Thursday - Throwback Thursday (favorite decade)
Friday - Pajama Day (school appropriate)
Attached is a schedule for next week. We will dismiss for lunch. Students are only required to report back in the afternoon if their section is listed to report. At a glance, it is:
Monday - Brass/Tenors
Tuesday - Guard/Flutes/Piccolos/Clarinets
Wednesday - Alto Saxes
Thursday - Percussion/Guard
There is a strong probability that those sectionals will not go until 5:00. If we need that time, we will use it. Please be aware that sectionals may dismiss earlier than 5:00, but Mr. Bolen will not leave until everyone has left the school grounds safely.
Also, DCI Massillon is Monday. Check the schedule for more information.
The band is currently working on our first halftime show, and things have been going very well. I would like to call everyone's attention to just a couple of details:
Thank you, and as always, feel free to contact the director if you have any questions or concerns!
Here is the schedule for Memorial Day for the Marching Band, and anyone involved in High School Concert Band will need to report to Graduation as well. Let Mr. Bolen know if there are any further concerns or questions. GO TIGERS!
Please do not forget that forms due regarding the Marching Band trip to Busch Gardens are due by April 3, and need to be turned in to Mr. Bolen or a booster member ASAP. Thank you! Hope to see you there!
Sorry I haven't updated in several weeks. It's been the nature of school for everyone. We will also be having our first Pep Band rehearsal on Wednesday from 5:30-6:30. I hope to see everyone there!
Looking ahead to next week, we have a Halloween Parade on Wednesday night in Dover starting at 6:00 pm, and Friday will be the Senior Show.
