Holzer’s This Week in Band 10/17-10/21

Words cannot express the pride felt from Saturday’s event.  Our students performed a MAGNIFICENT show, and displayed maturity beyond their years.  Princeton was chosen specifically due to its emphasis on 4A schools, and Saturday’s lineup included many of the best 4A’s in the state.  We went toe to toe with the best of our class.  With Denton HS (5A) choosing to perform only as exhibition, we missed finals by ONE place.  That stings!  Rather than focus on that, we appreciate the fact that our group has accomplished so much in such a relatively short amount of time.  The foundation has been put in place to build a world-class program.  I am proud of each and every one of these dedicated, hardworking, talented students.  The future is BRIGHT!

Thank you to our parents who supported us both on and off the field Saturday.  We appreciate you!!  I have to thank a few individuals – Mrs. Mendez for coordinating volunteers, Mrs. Wardell for feeding us, and Mr. Probst for heading up loading crew.  Most importantly, THANK YOU parents for all the support given throughout this season.  You have made the difference!  The bus reception Saturday Night was just another example of the love and support you have for these kiddos.  That was AMAZING!!  Thank you, thank you!    

New Event – Group picture day 10/28.  Students will need to report to the bandhall by 7:45 am to change into their uniforms.  Hair should be done beforehand.  This is important as we will NOT be wearing shakos (hats) for the picture.  Line up for the picture will begin at 8:00 am.  We will be done as soon as we take the picture.  This will be used in the yearbook and available for individual purchase.

This Week in Band,

Since this week’s game is away, the two marching rehearsals on the schedule have been cancelled!  Use this time to rest and catch up on work.  You have earned it!!  We are still rehearsing 10/25 and 10/26 for the last game.

Wednesday – We are hosting the Fowler MS Band concert and need a few volunteers to stay and help set-up and pass out programs. 

Thursday – Pep Rally during activity period.  Wear your Ignition Shirt.

Friday – Objective pages due.  Please collect a signature and fill out your playing log.

I will be sending out an additional email with information regarding sectionals and jazz band.  Be on the lookout!

Please remember to check the calendar on the website for dates/times, and contact me should you have any questions.

Have a wonderful week,

Mr. Holzer
