Pick Up From Marching Band
Tuesday, September 20th, 2016
Good evening,Please be reminded that we are working until 6 p.m., kids are often not ready for pick up until 6:10 or 6:15 p.m. Today we worked in bibbers to help phase them in and head off any length and fitting issues and for them to feel what the fabric is like and begin to acclimate.Thursday we will work in jackets part time and shakos (hats) and gloves. This will add a little bit to their pack in time, but will also help them practice for Fridays dressing procedures.
Also, please be reminded for the safety of our students to NOT park on the curb by the band room. Please park in a space in the lot to pick your student up. This is as much about their safety because they have a hard time seeing with equipment around the parked cars at those that may be attempting to pass. It is also causing traffic flow problems getting the band kids in to the band room by foot and cars through to pick up other activities.
Thank you so much. I wish you could have seen them at practice today. They were working so hard the whole time and today without prompting. I am so proud of your young men and women.
