Odem Bands Schedule Week of 12/11/2017

It always amazes me how quickly the first semester flies by! This week we will have our annual Odem Bands Winter concert on Thursday. We look forward to this also being our very first concert on our new stage!

As with any first time of having an event we will have a few new procedures to make the concert successful. If you arrive prior to the beginning of the concert please come in the main high school entrance. We ask that the doors to the cafetorium from the main hallway only be used in between pieces or groups after that time. This is due to those doors being right in front of the stage. We will have the back door to the room, at the very front of the school, unlocked as well. There will be signs to guide you as well for this performance.


School Board Meeting

Tomorrow night (Monday night) we will present to the School Board about advancing to the State Marching Band Contest. I would ask that any seniors and leadership team members can make it to the meeting at 6:30pm at the JH Library to please do so! It will be early in the board meeting as the second main agenda item.


Beginning Band Dress Rehearsal

On Wednesday the OJH Beginning Band will have a rehearsal from 4pm-5:30pm at the OHS Cafetorium. This will be their one opportunity to rehearse with all four classes together, and it is imperative that they attend this graded rehearsal. Following the rehearsal we ask that you pick them up at the front of the high school. (Please note students do not need to dress up for this rehearsal, they should be in their regular school clothes)


Odem Bands Winter Concert

The Odem Bands Winter Concert will be this Thursday beginning at 6:30pm for the Junior High Bands, and 7:30pm for the High School Band. The concert will be at the Odem High School Cafetorium.
