Hello, hello, hello!
First off, thank you for a wonderful weekend! Your patience on our first weekend competition as well as your flexibility and cooperation made it a fantastic first weekend out!
Big shout out and thank you to all of the parent volunteers from this weekend and a special thank you to Harlan Bloodworth and Winners Circle Automotive for fixing the tires on the trailer last minute Friday night. We would not have been able to go anywhere without that in working order!
The Marching Eagles received 2nd place at the Murphysboro AppleFest Parade in their class. They received the highest music score in their class as well! When compared to every band in the parade, they received 4th overall, with 3rd in music. Quite an accomplishment!
The community, school, and I cannot thank you enough for playing at the football game Saturday night, either! We know it was a long day for all of you, but you pushed through and showed your professionalism and dedication.
There are a few things happening this week (not as much as last week, though!):
Monday, 9/19: Parade Rehearsal from 4pm-5pm, Field Rehearsal from 5pm-7pm. If you ordered anything from the GetLogod fundraiser, those items will be dropped off after rehearsal.
Tuesday, 9/20: Roma's Pizza Fundraiser! Simply go to Roma's and tell them that you are there for the band and a portion of the proceeds will go to the band program. Easiest fundraiser EVER! It lasts all day from 11am-10pm. I'll be there around 7pm. :)
Wednesday, 9/21: ILMEA Audition Clinic at SIUE - select students are attending. We will leave the school at 3:20pm and come back around 7pm. Percussion Rehearsal will still happen as well from 5:30pm-7pm.
That's it for this week!
Updates for next week will be sent out next week, but here's a few things to keep in mind.
1. Parent Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27th in CMHS Commons. Sign up to attend here.
2. EIU Field Show on Saturday, Oct. 1. Sign up to chaperone/help set up the field here.
3. Homecoming Parade/Homecoming Game on Friday, Oct. 7th. Sign up here.
4. Senior Night Football Game on Friday, Oct. 14th. Sign up here.
Our band needs a lot of wheels to keep it rolling smoothly. Parent volunteers are one of those wheels! Please help where you can.
If you take any pictures or videos of anything the band does, could you please send them to me? I'll post them on the website!
Musically yours --
Updates will go out weekly to all band parents and students. If you're not receiving these updates, double check Ms. Davis has the most up-to-date email address for you!
