Odem Bands Schedule Week of 11/12/2018

Welcome to the last week before Thanksgiving Break! I would like to begin this week by thanking the Owl Band Booster Officers Mandi Edwards, Rita Jasso, Frances Lovaas, and Janet Hernandez for all of their hard work this fall in the concession stand! If you see any of these officers please thank them for all of their long hours making our most successful fundraiser of the year possible! Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped through the fall as well!

Tuesday night we have a Band Booster Meeting at 7pm and invite you to attend. We will be wrapping up the odds and ends from the fall with the concession stand at this meeting as well as discussing the next month or so of events.

This week we will have our first playoff game versus Dilley HS at Freer HS Stadium. Students will need to report to the Band Hall by 4:15pm so we can feed them dinner and prepare to leave for the game. We will be departing as soon as afternoon routes have returned to the school. Please make sure you plan on a game the following Friday during break as well. Traditionally we have a report time around 11am or noon for those games. More information would be available by Saturday for that game.

Beyond that for HS Students we will be having our Fall Band Placement auditions this week based on parts of the All-Region Music. All students must record as part of their Fall Semester Project Grade. We will begin recording those on Tuesday in class. I will have audition cuts for students Monday in class.
