Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 9/9/2019

Congrats to all of the students involved in last nights game as the Owls won vs Mathis! From what I have heard, the CW broadcast of the game was a great highlight of all of the great things that are going on at Odem HS this year! As September rolls by we quickly near our upcoming contest season beginning. Please make sure that you are aware of our upcoming schedule for the high school band. Beginning the 29th, with the AC Jones Contest in Beeville, we have something every Saturday until the end of October. It is imperative that students do not miss any of these performances!

This week we will be having our monthly Owl Band Booster Meeting Tuesday night, at 7pm, at the OHS Band Hall. Please note that this is one of the events that counts in our student incentive program for this year that we discussed at this past week’s meeting. (http://www.odembands.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/OWL-BAND-BOOSTERS-Volunteer-Incentive-Plan.pdf) If you were unable to attend that meeting I would ask that you please make an appointment to meet with me sometime this week.

On Thursday night we have the JV Football game at home versus Ganado. If there are any junior high parents who are available who can help, or any HS parents that were scheduled for this past week and couldn’t make it, the boosters would appreciate the help!

Friday we will be traveling to Ganado for our football game. Students need to report to the Band Hall by 1:15pm so we can board the buses and depart on time. We will be feeding the students in Victoria on our way to the game. I anticipate a late return to Odem that night, most likely a bit after midnight.

2020 Odem Bands Trip to California:

We should have already received deposits for the 2020 Trip to California. We will allow through Tuesday night’s band booster meeting to turn those in so we may accurately judge interest.

Please see this link for a trip packet. (http://www.odembands.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/2020-California-Packet-8-18-2019.pdf)
