Odem Bands Schedule – Week of 8/16/2021

Welcome officially to the new school year! Our HS students have been working hard during summer band to prepare, and now we’ll begin our final preparations to begin our season of performances! This Wednesday, at 8pm, we will have our ‘Meet the Band’ performance. Since we do not yet have the stadium our plan is to do this performance on our Parking Lot field. Please stay tuned though as with the final stages of construction there may be some adjustments needed. Our secondary site will be our grass practice field behind the high school. We look forward to giving you the first look at ‘Sweet!’

Next, If students have not already turned in their Fall Band Fees we need those turned in as soon as possible! 
This week students will be receiving their handbooks and band forms. It’s important that we receive those forms back by the end of this week! Our rehearsal schedule this week will be slightly modified off of our regular schedule due to Meet the Band. Please see more information below on that. 

Finally this is always the week that teachers hand out ‘easy’ assignments that just need to be returned after being signed. Please help us make sure your student completes all of those. No Pass/No Play is fully in effect for our marching season, and we don’t want to have to leave anyone behind as the semester progresses!
