Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 11/9/2020

First, I would like to thank the students for an absolutely outstanding performance/rehearsal on Saturday! Our guest adjudicators were incredibly impressed with our band and how hard everyone worked! We identified our main areas we need to focus on cleaning leading up to Region Marching Contest on November 21st. Please note that UIL Region Marching Contest is a required and graded event that date, even with it being on the break students must be in attendance! We received our preliminary performance time for the event this week. The Spirit of OHS will perform at 2:20pm that day as the final 3A band performing. There are supposed to be a number of COVID-19 procedures to be sent out to us soon for the contest. Among the ones we do know is that we will be unloading, go straight to warm-up, straight to performance, then straight to loading the buses and departing for home. We will receive our contest results as we depart. Seating is most likely going to be limited, and there may be some advanced ticketing. I will pass that information on as soon as I receive it! 

Tomorrow, Monday evening, we do have a rehearsal still from 6:30pm-8:30pm. With UIL being two weeks away it is imperative that students are there for it! 

Wednesday Odem HS will host a ceremony to honor our Veterans at Owl Stadium. Veterans are invited to attend this ceremony; more information may be found through the district’s media sources. The Spirit of OHS will perform at this ceremony. Students will check into their first period classes and make sure they are dressed in their uniforms before 8:30. The ceremony is set to begin at 9am. Like all events at OEISD this year Masks/Social Distancing/Temperature checks will be required. We look forward to honoring the amazing men and women who have served in our nation’s military!
