Odem Bands Schedule Week of 11/16/2015

This week the Odem Bands will be finalizing the entries for the All-Region Process, recording auditions for HS Band Placement for the spring, and preparing for the playoff game that will be held on Friday. We would like to see at least as many students audition for the All-Region Bands as we can! The majority of our students would make the bands with just a small amount of preparation over the coming few weeks. Please encourage students to participate! I have entry forms available for all eligible students that I will be passing out this week in class.

The playoff this game will be versus Tidehaven HS and will be hosted in Edna. We will be the home team for this game. The pep rally is tentatively scheduled for 1pm Friday afternoon, and I plan to depart the school at 3pm to the game. We will feed the students dinner somewhere along the way to the game.

I believe the Odem Owls will most likely win this week as well, meaning we will have another playoff game next week during the holiday break. I believe that will likely be another game that will be played in that Victoria area. I will send our more information as I receive it, but based on last year I believe we will tentatively need the students at the school around 9am Friday the 27th.  As always playoff games are required and graded performances. If you anticipate a conflict please contact me with the details by the middle of this week so that we may plan to work with you accordingly.


As always if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me!
