Weekend Agenda

The schedule and details for this Friday are here.  Individual pics will start during classtime.  Students will need their under-uniform, dinner and polo uniform.  Details for each can be found in the next section and here.  Students will have access to the band polos if they need to borrow one from the parade shirts.  Info about laundering will come later.  Polos will available to purchase and keep in the spiritwear order if desired.

Football Band

Brass and woodwinds will want to order a flipfolder and lyre for the game Friday.  This will hold your music for playing “in the stands.”  Each instrument will have a specific lyre (metal stick thing to attach to instrument) so its best to call Paige’s Music (317-842-2102) with your instrument and model (especially for saxes).

Students will need to wear the prescribed under-uniform any time the band is in the formal uniforms including band photos on Friday.  There are several details to this.  The highlights are crew-length solid black socks, black t-shirt with sleeves (images on the shirt are okay), athletic shorts (no cargo shorts, no denim), no make-up nor jewelry, long hair pulled up under hat.  See the full details here.

Parent Volunteers/Chaperones

Wa-Nee Community Schools requires a background check for parents that would like to assist with band events.  All volunteers complete a limited background check.  Parents that are interested in serving as a chaperone must also complete an expanded background check.  More details here.

Classwork

All assignments can be found on Canvas.  Grades are located on Skyward.  Students just completed their first memorized performance quiz.  They are in process of being graded.  Students can expect one performance quiz per week through the end of September.
