Pep Band A: This Tuesday!

This is a reminder that PEP BAND A, has their first game this week on TUESDAY, JANUARY 15th. Each member should arrive to the MMS ARENA by 7:00 PM. You can be dropped off, or park in back of MMS, which is accessible via Tylersville Road still this year. The games are usually done around 9:15 PM.

 

Each member of Concert Winds, Symphonic Band, and Wind Symphony will again be responsible for two basketball games as part of their grade for Spring Semester. There are three groups, Pep Band A, B and C, so please check the schedule/roster that went out in December if you are not sure which group you are in. The list is also posted on the bulletin board in the band room.

 

There is a sign-in sheet at all games to receive credit for performing. Students in all other concert bands are not required to attend, but are always welcome!

 

If you have a conflict with one of the games, it is your responsibility to arrange a trade with a student from another pep band, on your same instrument. All students must attend two game, so you will trade with that student for one of their pep band games. When you sign into pep band games, please note if you are subbing for another student.

 

Please email Mr. Protzman or Mr. Hinson if you have any questions about Pep Band. We are looking forward to seeing all of you soon!

 

Thank you!

Mr. Hinson
