Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 8/23/2021

I hope everyone has managed to rest up after our first full week of school last week! Tomorrow night, at 8pm, we will have our makeup ‘Meet the Band’ performance. This will take place on our grass practice field behind the high school by the bus loading zone. We look forward to giving you the first look at ‘Sweet!’

This week will also be our first football game versus West Oso. Our field is not ready to be used yet, so we will be away for this game. Students need to report to the HS Band Hall by 5pm on Friday so we can prepare for our departure in their Band Shirts and Shorts. All rehearsals, games, performances, and contests are mandatory and graded for students. Please help us make sure that students are present for each of those!

Finally just as a reminder, students should have turned in their Band Fees and Forms by now. If they have not, please make sure those are turned in this week. We cannot take any student on Friday who has not completed their forms!
