Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 8/17/2020

This week we will continue to meet in the evenings for rehearsals, however classes will begin being held virtually on Wednesday. I’m certain more information is going to be sent out by the district, but please note that in order for a student to be considered present for class they have to complete the assignment for that day. It must be completed by no later than 11:59pm that day for students to receive attendance credit. State law sets the attendance requirements for students – please help us ensure that students are completing their work in classes!

This week the Owl Band Boosters will be needing help with the concession stand for the Scrimmages that will be held on Thursday. They will begin at 4pm and end around 8-8:30pm. London and Refugio will both be in attendance at this scrimmage, so we will need volunteers to help out. Please contact Mandi Edwards if you can help!

Students will need to pay $25 this week to order our T-shirts/shorts that we plan to wear at least initially this fall. Please send that to us via a check/money order by Wednesday at the latest. Those should be made out to OEISD with the Memo field labeled ‘Band.’

The scrimmage being on Thursday is going to change up our schedule a little bit from what I told the students on Thursday. Due to the scrimmage we are going to rehearse Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings this week. We will resume our Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday schedule the following week. Rehearsals will be from 6:30pm-8:30pm those evenings.

This week we will give students an updated fall calendar of events. The first event that we do have though is on Friday, August 28th when Ingleside will play Odem, here in Odem.

We hope everyone stays healthy and well!
