Band Update – Homecoming Week!

Happy Homecoming Week! Here’s what we’ve got:

  • Full Marching 100 Rehearsal – Tuesday, 9/19 – 6-8:30pm. Guard will begin at 5:30pm
  • Full Marching 100 Rehearsal – Thursday, 9/21 – 6-8:30pm. Guard will begin at 5:30pm
  • Homecoming Football v. Edwardsville – meet at West at 5:45pm. Please note that parking will be a problem due to the homecoming parade – you may want to be early!
    Seniors will be riding in the homecoming parade – they need to be coordinating rides (some will park at AMS, some will park at West to give rides back to AMS). They will also need to arrange to have all performance items (uniform parts, instrument) at West ready to go!

Other items:

  • We also have an updated calendar: 2017 Calendar – Aug-Oct
    – Please note – the M100 Family Day on 9/30 is for the kids – we’ll rehearse, BBQ for lunch, and play some games/enjoy each other’s company. We’ll need some parent help with lunch, but it’s a day for the “M100 Family”
    – Also, a reminder that the Valhalla contest on Saturday, October 7 is an overnight – we will stay at a school that Saturday night, have lunch at Lambert’s and then be home early Sunday afternoon. I’ll send out more details when I have them!
    – I know many students are planning on taking the PSAT on October 14 when we also have the Potosi Competition. If they have to miss the bus (we don’t know the schedule yet) we’ll get a carpool going!
    – We did get into BOA (Bands of America) at the America’s Center (Edward Jones Dome downtown St. Louis) on Friday, October 20. We play at 10:30am. It will probably be an early morning. Just a heads up if you’d like to ask off work!I’ll keep it short this week 🙂 Please let us know if you have any questions!
