Week 10: UIL Success; Final Week of Show Rehearsals; Stradium Rehearsal Tuesday; Saturday Contest; Marching Band Fee Close-Out
Congratulations to the Mighty Panther Marching Band for earning a 1st Division “Superior” rating at the 2019 UIL Region 5 Marching Band Contest on Tuesday!! The directors were extremely proud of the performance and we received good feedback from the judges for future growth. Thanks to all of the family and friends who were able to come out and support us! Our continued success at UIL contests is a testament to the great things going on in our feeder schools and the hard work we are investing each day at Paschal. Let’s finish the marching band contest season strong this week!!
Reminders for the week:
MARCHING BAND FEE CLOSEOUT: The end of marching season means that our booster club has invested a tremendous amount of money into our band program. Marching band fees should be paid in full at this point. Any students who need a payment plan to finish off remaining balances can speak to a director or booster treasurer to work that out.
FINAL “FULL” WEEK OF FULL BAND REHEARSALS AND LAST BAND CONTEST ON SATURDAY: As we prepare for our final band contest of the season, we’ll have a normal/full week of marching band rehearsals. The weather should be beautiful this week, so let’s make the most of it!!
FARRINGTON STADIUM REHEARSAL ON TUESDAY (6 - 8 PM): We’ll be rehearsing at Farrington Field on Tuesday. Students are welcome to meet us there, but we’ll have buses available departing at 5 PM from Paschal. Parents are welcome to pick their kids up at Farrington when we’re done. We’ll also have buses returning to Paschal. Loading crew and percussion should plan to have a normal “game day” load process and unload back at Paschal after the rehearsal. All students should wear a WHITE shirt for this rehearsal (helps us clean drill easier) for this rehearsal.
FOOTBALL GAME VS BOWIE ON FRIDAY (NOTE VENUE): We’ll be playing Bowie HS on Friday. Make note that the game will be played at Wilemon Field (@ Sam Houston HS). Here’s the volunteer link: 10/25 FRIDAY @ 7:30 FOOTBALL GAME: PHS vs Bowie HS
VENUE CHANGE AND SCHEDULE FOR SATURDAY’S CONTEST: The US Bands Contest on Saturday has been moved to Honey Grove HS. For whatever reason, Coppell is unable to host. Note the attached schedule for Saturday. We’re are in the hunt for finals, so students and families should plan for an entire day at the venue. Boosters are providing lunch and dinner for the students on Saturday. Students can bring $$ for snacks during the day, letter jacket patches and other souvenirs.
