Band News (week of 1/7-1/13)

Hey Falcons! Please see below from Mr. Bond's email for the week of Monday (1/7) through Sunday (1/13)...

Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a great holiday break and was able to enjoy the time off with friends and family. We’ve got a lot of great things going on this semester and I’m excited to get the new year started!

Good luck to all 18 of our area band members who will be auditioning for the TMEA All State Band this Saturday at Clements High School in Fort Bend. Area members need to meet at the Seven Lakes High School band hall by 7:30 am this Saturday to catch the bus over to the auditions.

All band members who are supposed to turn in rehearsal conflict forms tomorrow need to look through their weekly schedule and have those ready to turn in during class.

Cherwink Baby Shower

Mr. and Mrs. Cherwink are expecting their first baby (boy!) in the next couple of weeks, so we’re going to have a shower this Thursday (January 10) at 6 pm in the band hall. Everyone is invited and if you’d like to get them a gift, you can go to their Amazon registry by following this link:

Mulch Fundraiser

We will begin our spring mulch fundraiser next Monday with delivery on February 16. If you or your neighbors need to re-mulch your yards, please purchase your mulch through the band. The mulch is of great quality, we deliver, and you’re helping out the band!

Game Night

You’ll definitely want to put the 2nd annual OTHS Band Game Night on your calendar on January 25th. This is a really fun event and opportunity to hang out and play some games. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Booster Meeting

There will be an OTHS Band Booster Organization general meeting on Tuesday, January 15 at 7:30 pm in the band hall. All parent members are highly encouraged to attend.

2019 Summer Band

The full summer band rehearsal schedule has been entered into Charms. Please plan any vacations/travel in a manner that does not conflict with these rehearsals. Also, please note that with the change in UIL rules, we will have two Saturday rehearsals after school begins on August 16, which are also on the Charms calendar. These Saturday rehearsals make up for time lost due to our early school start date. Once the football schedule is released in March, I will enter the rest of the rehearsal/performance calendar for the fall.

See everyone tomorrow!
