Upcoming Events

Parents and Students,

I wanted to share some information on some upcoming events.

Friday: Basketball Band will need to meet at 6:45am to get set up for a morning pep rally in the commons. At 8:00am they will be released to set up for our Pep Assembly that begins at 8:30am. The assembly will last about 30 minutes. BBall band has a double header in the evening. I am asking for a 4pm call time so that I can treat them to some pre-game Ice Cream!

Wednesday Feb 15th: The Women’s game as been moved to Pattonville so there is NO BBALL BAND. Parent/teacher conferences will be that evening.

Thursday Feb 16th: On the calendar we have a concert on this day. I had originally planned to continue with this night but do to scheduling and the needs of our ensembles this date will be moved. I will post when I have a replacement date for this event. The event will be a Woodwind Choir, Brass Choir, and Percussion Ensemble concert on the stage. We will then split into two rooms. (WW and Perc) (Brass) We will have the solos and ensembles perform in these rooms to prepare for S&E contest. Depending on the date, It will either help prepare them for the District or the State level contest. If I can’t get a date that is before district, I will personally work with the kids to make sure they understand the process and get the nerves out.

Be sure to join us for the Winter Guard parent performance on this date. I hear there is a surprise in store for me.

Thank you again for your patience with the schedule. Please remember, I am working with a schedule not set by me. I have already begun a working calendar for next year and will have all of next years dates to you before school lets out in May.(Minus opportunities that are added throughout the year.)

More info coming soon.

Thanks!

Mr. Stegeman

Monday Update

Hello Band Fam!

As of right now, I have no word on whether we are allowed to rehearse on Monday due to District Cancellations. Mr. Janes, is going to call me in the morning and I will post 1st thing in the morning so that we are all on the same page.
I spoke to our DJ and he is totally down to reschedule. I assure you, that we will work hard to find a date that works for everyone. I want as many to be there as possible. I am working on the Hype Video and meeting with some of your new amazing staff members for next year!
WW and Brass Choir: Stay tuned so that we can rehearse tomorrow if we are allowed. WW-10-12 Brass- 12-2.
Jazz Band: I need to know first thing on Tuesday if you are available to perform around 6pm for the Hollenbeck instrument fitting on Thursday the 19th. I will also need some members to stick around and talk to kids and parents. It will be easy. We will load up my explorer with the large equipment and meet at Hollenbeck. We will meet 30mins before, set up, play, some will leave, and then be done.
Everyone: Practice… A lot of new music was given out recently. Work it up. Rehearsal isn’t any fun if we are practicing rather than rehearsing.
Much love!
Mr. Stegeman
