Weekly Band Update 9/17/18

18 Sep

Hello Everyone!

Big shout out to everyone that came out and volunteered Friday night!  Without your assistance we would not be able to accomplish the things that we do.  Those little Sharkettes- “our future band students” were amazing and adorable. An additional big shout out to Heather Desrocher and Heather Roberts for coordinating those 150 adorable kids!

There is no band practice this Tuesday evening in observance of Yom Kippur. Yes, there is practice Thursday. **We had a lot of students need to borrow band t-shirts last Thursday. If you need to wear a t-shirt to practice, REMEMBER IT!**

This Friday, 9/21, is our first AWAY game. We are going to Estero High!

Students, your concession card won’t buy you anything there. You’ll need actual money. Also, on Friday, don’t forget your standard game-day stuff: band shoes, band t-shirt, long black socks, black shorts, and gloves or berets. You can borrow these things if you need them from the uniform room; but borrowing more than once means you need to BUY them!
Parents, you are welcome to go and see the game, but the kids have to ride the bus there and back.

We still need volunteers for AWAY games. We need chaperones for the buses, the stands and bathroom trips. Please go to the website to sign up.  http://www.gchsharkband.com/volunteer/

Did you get the band apparel you ordered yet? If not, we still have a bunch in the uniform room. Your student can pick it up. They will need to sign for it after checking that the order is correctly sized and spelled. If you have questions, please contact Heather Desrocher at 239-784-4580.

Lastly, Brandon Casey is part of band leadership. He is the Historian. He was wondering if anyone had pictures they’d be willing to send him so that he can compile them for an end of the year slide show. You can send them to him at brandcasey22@gmail.com. He thanks you in advance!
