I wanted to share some info, but before doing that, I wanted to tell you how pleased the staff was with last night’s performance.
We had never rehearsed in Gupton before the Rally in the past, so it was a new thing…
The last two days were great days! I hope the students all had great experiences. (We won’t discuss the before/after school “drop off”/”pick up” traffic! Ouch!!) Our band rehearsals in class and after school were very productive. The students handled the class time outside rehearsals very well. Only a few students were not ready with their water jugs. We will continue to keep them safe and work out solutions, but if everyone forgot their water jug, we’d be in trouble. We suggest getting everything ready the night before (making a check list and checking off the box) and putting everything close to the door through which they exit.
Back in the early part of July, I sent a link to register for private lessons. As of today, I have 83 students on the roster for lessons.
If you have not registered, please go to the website to sign up for private lessons.
I’m sure you have all heard about “spirit nights” at various restaurants located near and around Vista Ridge High School. If you mention that you are from Vista Ridge Band, participating restaurants will usually donate about 5-10% of sales back to the band.
There will be a Chaperone meeting on Aug 19 at 7:30 in the band hall. (though we may move to a different location – just follow the signs) We will be meeting with the Roadies as well.
