I just wanted to send out a reminder about our MPA performance tomorrow. ALL STUDENTS need to be at school in the band room NO LATER THAN 7AM CENTRAL TIME (unless you ride the bus). If you are a bus rider, come straight off of the bus to the band room as quickly as you can. The buses will be leaving NO LATER THAN 7:20AM to head to Gadsden. DO NOT MISS THE BUS! We will be returning around 3-3:15PM Central Time, so please have a ride ready to pick you up! Make sure that you also bring $10-$15 to eat lunch at the Gadsden Mall.
The 7th/8th Grade Intermediate Band will perform at 9:30AM Central and the High School Concert Band will perform at 11:30AM Central at the Gadsden City High School Auditorium. All friends and family are welcome to come listen to the concert (it's free)! Any student wishing to check out after the performance may do so with a parent or pre-approved guardian.
7th/8th Graders: DON'T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR NEW POLO SHIRTS! Also wear black pants/socks/shoes (all must be school appropriate).
High School: DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR BLACK SOCKS AND YOUR BAND SHOES! I have a giant bin of leftover shoes that smell AWFUL that I would be glad to provide you with if you forget your own.
Above all else: LET'S HAVE FUN TOMORROW! Ratings aren't as important as they may seem at times. In the end it's really all just some people's opinions. I know you guys sound great and I'm proud of you all for all of the hard work you've put in. Let's go at this tomorrow with the mindset that we're only performing to show off how much we've improved. In my eyes you all deserve superiors!
I love my job!
