I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful weekend. This was a big weekend for marching band contests, but Monday’s pre-UIL district assessment will provide great feedback as we head into our final rehearsals before the UIL Marching Band Contest next week in Mansfield. We’ll have an exciting week this week with homecoming on Thursday (pep rally and game). We’ll have an important rehearsal after school on Friday, as well. Next week’s stadium rehearsal and UIL will be important to prepare for, as well.
Reminders for the week:
FWISD MARCHING ASSESSMENT ONMONDAY: Our performance is at 8:45 PM (we’re the final band). Please refer to the attached schedule of the day. It is important for students to have all items with them no later than 3:45 PM so that we can have a smooth rehearsal, meal and performance. PARENTS: We could use a few extra parents to help with equipment on the field during our performance (sound system, drum major podiums, etc). Please consider meeting us at Clark Stadium (TCC South Campus) around 7:30 PM to help out.
HOMECOMING GAME/PREGAME PERFORMANCE ON THURSDAY: Our plan is to perform BEFORE the game on Thursday. We will meet in the auditorium at 5 PM and send percussion and loading crew to Farrington as soon as the first bus gets to Paschal. We’ll send the rest of the students as buses arrive. Paschal’s portion of halftime will be dedicated to the Homecoming activities. Here’s the link to sign up to chaperone: 10/10 THURSDAY @ 7:00pm FOOTBALL GAME: PHS vs Trimble Tech
DRUMLINE @ DAY OF THE GIRL ON FRIDAY: The percussion section will have their annual performance at the Day of the Girl celebration in downtown Ft Worth on Friday. Mrs. Bolton will provide specific details this week. Students will miss a few classes on Friday, but will be back in time for rehearsal after school.
IMPORTANT EVENTS NEXT WEEK: Monday’s stadium rehearsal is extremely important for our success at UIL on Tuesday, Oct 15. It is unfortunate that UIL was scheduled after a 3-day weekend, but that’s what we’re having to deal with. Students can meet us at Clark stadium or ride the busesprovided. We’re tentatively scheduled for a 4-6 PM rehearsal time. We’ll confirm that schedule ASAP. For Tuesday’s UIL performance, we will perform at 6 PM in Mansfield (same stadium as our last contest). Students will eat first lunch and then meet on the turf field for a rehearsal before loading up and departing for the contest. We’ll send out a schedule later this week.
