It’s a big week for the Paschal Band!! Please do all you can to come out and support us in Mansfield on Tuesday @ 6 PM. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for the rain to hold off until the contest is complete. There are parent volunteer links in each of the two info sections below. We need several more parents to help with equipment on the field on Tuesday (drum major podiums, percussion equipment and sound equipment).
Reminders for the week:
FINAL REHEARSAL BEFORE UIL ON MONDAY (3 - 6 PM): We didn’t get as far as we had hoped in Friday’s rehearsal, so we have moved our Monday rehearsal to Paschal. We’ll spend about an hour on the grid and then move to the turf field for the rest of the rehearsal. It should go without saying, but attendance at this rehearsal is extremely important considering that we are putting music to the final sets of the closer. Students should be on the field and ready to go at 3 PM.
UIL CONTEST ON TUESDAY: See the attached schedule attached to this email and sent out in the BAND app. All students will eat 1st lunch (4th period) and then meet in the auditorium before heading out to the turf field for a rehearsal before loading up and heading to Mansfield. Here’s a link for parents to sign up to chaperone and volunteer: UIL Marching Contest
LILY B CLAYTON WALK-A-THON ON FRIDAY: Leadership Team members and all Lily B Clayton alum will participate in this event. Students will wear their band t-shirts and shorts or jeans. Music will begin at 7:30 AM and the event will begin around 8 AM. We’ll walk with the students and then return to Paschal around 10 AM.
FOOTBALL GAME VS LAMAR ON FRIDAY: We’re at home (Farrington) against Arlington Lamar on Friday. Here’s a link for parents to sign up to chaperone: 10/18/19 FOOTBALL GAME vs Lamar High School
SCHEDULE FOR FINAL CONTEST IN COPPELL ON OCT 26: Our prelims performance is set for 12:30 PM. We will meet around 9 AM for inspection and immediately depart for Coppell. This is a prelims/finals events, so we’ll wait for those results to be announced at 4:45 PM. Although we didn’t make finals in Mansfield, we have a VERY STRONG chance of making finals at this contest. All involved should plan for a full day of marching band. Finals results will be announced at 9:45 PM. We’ll load all equipment after our finals performance, so we should be able to load buses and return to Paschal ASAP after results are announced.
