Odem Bands Schedule: Week of 8/15/2016


I hope this message finds you well as we prepare to go into our final week of summer band rehearsals before school starts up! This week is a busy one, so please take a close look at the schedule. Before I get to that though I would like to also make sure everyone knows we will be having a mandatory band parent meeting for all students Grades 7-12 on Monday, August 29th at 6pm. This will be a short meeting, less than an hour long, as we touch on policies for the 2016-2017 year. We will also have sign-ups for the Friday evening concession stands that night as well. Band Practice that evening will be adjusted to allow for the meeting.

This Weeks Schedule:

Monday: Evening Practice 6:30pm-9:30pm
Tuesday: Evening Practice 6:30pm-9:30pm
Wednesday: Students at Band Hall at 6:30pm
Annual Meet the Band at 7:30pm – Owl Stadium
Thursday: Viewing of Carnegie Hall Video at 5:30pm – Band Hall
Friday: Odem Football Scrimmage (Student volunteers needed for concession stand)
One last thing for the week. As I’m sure your students have informed you we have relocated our parking lot practice field to the far end of the parking lot due to construction. If you would please spread the word that we need that space in the evenings clear of vehicles we would greatly appreciate it! I know that it’s going to take some time to get used to the marching band using that space.
Thank you to everyone who has turned in the fees for band and colorguard. We still have some outstanding fees, we ask that you please get those turned in this week if at all possible. Thanks for your help and support in making this another great year for the Odem Bands!
