We have been asked by the administration to administer this survey to our students at the end of each trimester. Students only please take a minute to fill this survey out.
Check where I’m planning you on being next fall. It looks like it will be a great year. If you have questions or concerns contact me.
You should all register for this opportunity. It is not required, but you would be foolish to not do it. Seniors it is a last chance to play some new music before you leave us. Don’t miss the chance.
It’s time to start planning for the next Marching Band Season. We will be again hosting some Saturday events to introduce what we do to potential students. The first such event will be held on March 3rd in the band room at the HS. The other dates include April 7, and two Saturdays in May.
We are in the process of creating an Honor Band for the region. The dates for that have not been set yet, but will likely require us to cancel one of the May MB clinics. As soon as that information is locked in we will update you.
Either way you will want to keep both May 12 and 19 free for band.
Students may now apply to be in a National Honors Ensemble.
We are excited to announce that applications are NOW OPEN for the 2018 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles. This year’s event will take place November 25-28, 2018 at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. The 2018 program will also include our first-ever All-National Honor Guitar Ensemble! Attached please find the 2018 promotional flyer, and ensemble selection procedure. You can find all current information about the 2018 ANHE program at nafme.org/ANHE.
Here is the flyer:
Please take a minute to fill out this survey about the marching band season. It will help us plan for next year. I’d like responses filled out by November 7.
The new site has finally been migrated to the new server. We should be over the humps now and good to go. If you find anything missing that you would like access to let me know and I’ll add it.
Sweat Week starts Monday. Remember that practice is from 7am to 2pm Monday through Saturday. After 2pm I ask that the kids not make any other plans. If we need the extra time to finish stuff or have sectionals I need the kids there.
New Content from original post:
There is no acceptable excuse for missing Sweat Week! If a student misses any of this week they will be removed from the band. It is that important. If there is a once in a lifetime conflict that you really think warrants missing some of this week the student must meet with Mr. Gibson in person prior to the conflict. The more notice the better. Only if Mr. Gibson says it is approved will it be ok to miss. Do not plan on Mr. Gibson approving anything.

We will have a short parent preview Saturday about Noon. Feel free to come see what we have done. We will even give you a chance to try what they are doing. Wear some comfy shoes and something easy to move in.
