Good evening Mustang Band! Here are this week’s updates!
Please mark your calendars for the Midlothian and Desoto Marching Contests. Midlothian is October 5th and Desoto is October 12th. These are all day events for every member of the band program.
Please mark your calendars for the UIL region and Area Marching Contests. UIL Region is October 15th and Area is October 26th. UIL region is a single performance event and our time will be determined by a drawing. UIL Area is the next round of state qualifications and it is an all day event. We are hoping to be selected for finals at our Area contest!
SAT and ACT registration and testing dates are being posted to the website and the Facebook group. Please ensure that your testing dates do not conflict with a marching band contest.
The website has been updated! Please let me know if there are any links that do not seem to be working or if there is something missing that should be there. Many thanks to Ms. Irby for working hard to update our website!
The new website has absence request forms – these are to be filled out if your child will miss any band activity. It is important that you communicate conflicts in advance.
The website also has private lesson interest forms. Please fill this out, even if you are already enrolled in private lessons! This will help ensure that we have enough staff to teach lessons to our students.
Please make sure your physicals are done! UIL rules dictate that we will turn away every student from summer band that does not have this completed.
Students need to be fitted for the new summer uniform shirt! On Tuesday and Wednesday our wonderful boosters will be at CHHS from 11AM — 3PM to fit students for the new shirt. Please let them know if you are not able to make it.
The next payment of band fees is due July 9th. Please send those to Uma Benzick!
