Hello marching band!
Week 9 wrap-up
It is incredibly hard to believe there are only 2 weeks left in the marching season. What began as a seemingly endless journey in July is now nearing its conclusion. DO NOT GIVE UP! DO NOT SETTLE FOR LESS THAN YOUR BEST EVERY TIME! Continue to strive to find ways to make personal improvements every time we march a set or play the music. Thank you for your flexibility this afternoon in our uncertainty about the box truck. Come prepared for a week of little fixes that will make a big difference- engage your brain every time and make every rep better than the one before it!
Week 10 announcements and reminders:
IT IS FINALLY GETTING COLDER. Please make sure students are coming to marching band with enough layers of warm clothes!
Payments for start up costs: Please make sure you are taking care of your start-up cost bills. These were mailed to homes in September. If you have questions about the items on your bill, or questions/concerns about payment, please contact Mr. Lutz.
Varsity coats: Fittings happened and orders are now closed. Those of you who ordered, I will get in touch with the exact amount you still owe, as well as a deadline for that final payment. The jackets should arrive before Christmas.
Duncan’s corn maze – Sunday, October 29- again, not an ‘official’ marching band engagement, but you are encouraged to come anywhere from 3:00-7:00PM for a good time, compliments of Mrs. Wanda Moore.

It is awesome! You collect no money and you do not have to pick up and deliver items. You make $9 for your account on each wreath/greenery you sell.
