Hi, hey, hello!
Hopefully everyone is enjoying their extended weekend!
First Quarter Playing Test
- All information can be found on GoogleClassroom, but this test is due THIS FRIDAY at 11:59pm. Think ahead! Just do it! This test determines seating for the Christmas concert, so you have no right to be upset about your placement if you don't do it!
- Our final competition of the season is this Saturday in Potosi, Missouri! Itinerary can be found HERE.
- Batavia High School's marching band will be joining us on Friday, Oct. 26. The plan is to greet them, both bands will perform for each other, eat dinner together, then we will watch a short rehearsal of them before we are dismissed for the night. They are staying overnight at Civic Memorial, but our band is NOT! I'm requesting that we do a few things for them...
1. Greet them with "Welcome to Bethalto" signs
2. Give them a "Good Luck" poster
The greeting signs are up to you guys! I will purchase the Good Luck poster and everyone will get an opportunity to sign it.
- Bethalto's annual Halloween parade is being held on Monday, Oct. 29. Be sure to think ahead and plan your costume for this event! Call time will be 5:30pm at CM. We will bus over to The Bank of Edwardsville, line up and the parade starts at 6:30pm.
- After marching band season ends, we have a bit of a break before pep band begins! We do not perform at every home game, but the games that are on this schedule are required performances. Please give this schedule to your jobs NOW!
- Jazz band is an optional performance opportunity for high school students. We will meet every Friday afternoon from 3pm-4:30pm beginning Nov. 2. This is a fun group to play with! If you're interested, show up on Nov. 2 and decide from there if it's not for you!
