This week the band students will be marching in our Pink show shirts. We will be doing this for two reasons - 1)To honor and recognize the service Paula Sullivan gave to our school and band program and the community of Farwell. 2) Our new uniforms that we have ordered because there are so many kids in band have not all arrived yet.
So the uniform for this Friday is simple: Pink Shirts, blue jeans (not those ripped ones with holes), and our black marching shoes with white socks.
Several things to make sure you are aware of:
We do need several parents to help out during the night... one parent to help pass out shoes and one parent to mark our spot in the bleachers and another parent to help unload/load the trailer. Email Mr. Shimmons if you are willing to help out!
Your kids are awesome! Tuesday night Rehearsals went well and I appreciate that they remembered the show so well! We are looking forward with much excitement to the performance Friday night. We hope to see you all in the stands!
The band received a nice bit of attention in the Clare County Review - all be it a bit of a short article as well as a bit mis-informed! Too bad they didn't call for clarification but hey.... nice pictures anyways!
Tuesday night Practice This Week!
August 23 the Marching Band rehearsal will be at the High School NOT the football field as there are no lines on the regular football field. Normally, We have our Tuesday night Marching Band rehearsals every Tuesday night from now until the end of September from 6:30-9 at the Football Field.
The Marching Band will be performing this Friday at the home football game!
September 1st Home Football Game Added To Schedule
Next week on Thursday, September 1 we DO have a home football game. The Band will be marching at the Varisty Gmae which will actually be starting later than normal as this is a double header with the JV team playing right before hand. JV Footbal players may not be able to march in the pre-game show as I am sure they will still be changing. I do expect them to be in the stands as soon as possible, in their band uniforms.
This means we actually have 5 football games at home this year.
