Band News (week of 5/6-5/12)

Hey Falcons! Please see below from Mr. Bond's email for the week of Monday (5/6) through Sunday (5/12)...

Good Morning!

We had a great time welcoming new wind, percussion and color guard members this past week. This is a great group of students who are going to make a huge impact on our band starting next year!

There’s a lot going on the next couple of weeks and a couple of opportunities to see our students perform before the end of the year.

The spring concert is this Thursday and will begin at 6 pm with the Tays JH Band in the OTHS PAC. Student dress for this concert is concert formal.

The jazz band and jazz ensemble will perform at La Centerra next Saturday (May 11) starting at 6 pm.

Physical Forms

The KISD physical form can be found in Charms under the OTHS Band Documents folder. Please be sure to use this form when you go to your doctor to perform your physical. The first set of KISD sponsored physicals at OTHS will take place on May 14 at 5:30 pm in the competition gym.

Band Banquet

The band banquet is tonight at Legacy Stadium in the field house and doors will open at 5:45 pm. See everyone there!


Wind students who are performing at KYAC on May 18 will have their first opportunity to rehearse with their piano accompanist on Tuesday, May 7. All students are responsible for paying $60 to the piano accompanist directly.

Food Crew

With our band growing as much as it is next year, plans are already being made for feeding our students during summer band and other events. If you are interested in volunteering for this extremely important group, please contact Katy Grindal at


If you have any outstanding fees for band please make sure those are taken care of. The school requests a list each semester of any student who owes money to any organization and that student will not be able to get their exemption card until the fee is paid. If you are not sure if you owe any fees please contact me and I can let you know. If a student is on the list for not being able to exempt finals, once the fee is paid their name will be removed from the list. I am not going to include students who haven’t paid for summer band meals on this list.

Have a great weekend!

Stephen Bond
