Greetings Trojan Band Fans,

We are just under three weeks out from BOA St. Louis!  This week the rehearsal schedule is our usual setup with a ‘Bye’ weekend for football.  If you are ACL fans this is the weekend to go enjoy some live music!

Schedule for the week:

Monday pm – Guard and Percussion

Tuesday 5-7pm – WWinds and Brass. (pre-drill in morning)

Wednesday – Full Band evening rehearsal 5-7pm; Region Jazz Auditions (evening at LBJ); Drumline at Hill Elementary in the morning for back to school walk

Thursday – 7:30-9:30am (LATE START) Full Band rehearsal

Friday 7:30-8:30 – Full Band

Pink Fair share statements went home with your children Wednesday night after rehearsal this past week.  If yours did not make it home, please email me and I will send you another.

Looking ahead!!! Next week we do not have school on October 9, so we will have a full rehearsal for everyone Tuesday Oct 10 from 5-7pm so that all students have Monday off.  We will NOT rehearse Thursday morning (Oct 12) so that we may have our stadium rehearsal Oct 14 and not exceed the 8 hour rule.  Saturday, Oct 14 we will rehearse from 10am-1pm at Nelson Field.  

ELIGIBILITY:  Eligibility will set in this Tuesday when report cards are due.  If a student is ineligible (one or more grades below a 70 in a non pre-AP or IB course) they will attend all rehearsals but not be permitted to travel to games or competitions per UIL and AISD eligibility rules.  Students may regain eligibility with all grades above a 70 on the progress report.  Note….if a student loses eligibility due to a low grade in one class, they must regain eligibility by passing ALL classes, not just that class, on the progress report.  If you have questions, please email Ms. Gonzalez.

Everyone enjoy the week!  It’s going to be busy as we push toward BOA St. Louis, and you will have information that is specific to that trip coming your way TOMORROW!  We are excited with the progress the kids are making – now we just have to cross fingers for no rain during our evening rehearsals Tuesday and Wednesday!  Thank you parents for coming and cheering for the Trojans in the rain on Thursday!!  It was a rainy but fun night.  


Ms. Gonzalez
