After school rehearsals including full bands, sectionals and masterclasses are required and part of your grade for Spring semester. Failure to attend or communicate excused absences to a director will result in removal of UIL participation. This is policy is the same as it is for marching band season and all additional rehearsals conform to UIL’s 8-hour rule for Co-Curricular activities.
Be on the lookout for 2017-2018 Band Fee Balance sheets. These will be coming home shortly.
From now on, all Wind Ensemble class periods will go until 3:30pm. This conforms to the UIL 8-hour rule. Please note that staying until 3:30pm every day cuts down on the number of days that you will have to stay late for sectionals, masterclass and full band rehearsals.
Woodwinds – Your sectional day has been moved to Wednesday’s after school. This is to help facilitate all of the full band rehearsals for the three bands after Mid-February.
Brass – Your masterclass day is going to be Wednesdays. Initially we talked about Mondays or Thursdays, but our teachers are available on Wednesdays so that is when they will occur. However, there are no brass masterclasses this week.
Your sectionals will not start this week!
Freshman Region Band Students:
This coming Friday and Saturday is the clinic and concert at Spring High School. We will be speaking with you this week with more details.
