WEEK 12: JAZZ CONCERT; BOOSTER MTG; LAST GAME; DRUMLINE SHOWCASE & CONTEST; BUTTERBRAID FUNDRAISER; FEE CLOSEOUT
Thanks to all of the senior family members who came out to Farrington to celebrate our awesome senior class. It was really nice to see the cheerleaders and football team also stay to support our students. We have one more game to go and then we are DONE with Thursday/Friday Night Lights. The marching band performs at the Veteran’s Day and Stock Show Parades this year, but those are the only other performances for that group.
Flipgrid Assignment #2 is due today for Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band & Concert Band 1. Concert Band 2 will have their pass-off assignments handled in class. Flipgrid links are available in the BAND app.
Reminders for the week:
JAZZ CONCERT & COLORGUARD BAKE SALE ON MONDAY (7 - 8 PM): Jazz Ensemble 1 & 2 will be performing a concert on Monday. Our colorguard is also preparing some delicious treats to be sold at a bake sale prior to the concert. It will be a wonderful evening of music and a great way to support our band. Any band family is welcome to bring an item for the bake sale, as well. All non-jazz students are encouraged to come out and support their friends. There are only 2 groups performing, so the concert will not be particularly long.
MARCHING BAND REHEARSAL ON TUESDAY (4:30 - 6 PM): We’ll be reviewing the PHS Spell-Out on Tuesday and also making sure we have a good plan for next Monday’s performance at the City of Fort Worth’s Veteran’s Day parade. ALL ACADEMICALLY ELIGIBLE STUDENTS will be on the field on Thursday and will march in the parade next week. Make sure you bring your flip folder to rehearsal (with Mickey and Star Spangled Banner).
BOOSTER MEETING ON TUESDAY (6 - 7 PM): Always plenty to cover at the booster meetings! We do our best to make them as efficient as possible, so come out and see what is happening over the next few months.
FINAL FOOTBALL GAME OF THE SEASON @ NORTH CROWLEY: Weather permitting, we will feature do our PHS Spell-Out Spirit Show and feature the pom team. All academically eligible students will have a spot in the PHS Spell-Out (not just those who marched in the contest show).
DRUMLINE SHOWCASE ON FRIDAY & CONTEST ON SATURDAY: Our percussion section has their final contest on Saturday (1:24 PM performance at Marcus HS). They will be performing a special Showcase Performance on the turf field at 7 PM on Friday. Come out and show your support for these hard-working students!!
MARCHING BAND FEE CLOSEOUT: Invoices were distributed during class last week. If you have any questions about band fees, email a director to get those answered. The booster club spends a majority of their funds on marching band, so it is very important that all fees are paid as soon as possible. We have several important projects coming up that are fully funded by band fees (All-Region auditions, Solo & Ensemble, etc).
