School Daze 10/18/09

52-0 Patriots in the 3rd quarter - it snowed today,the boat has been winterize, I'm home in my lazy boy with my feet up, the E Trade commercial was too funny and now I'm writing my blog.

Friday night's football game performance was better than the Salem Band Show!
Yes, there were a few weaknesses but ovrall I was very impressed. Great focus on everyone's part. We only have two more home games let's not slack off- keep the focus, determination and willingness to continue to be the best. Reminder, that the Salem Band Show critiques are due tomorrow - for the Freshman who have been invovled in NEWA testing I'll extend the time frame for the critique.

This week we will have "Step up" night - Wednesday night- please remind your parents that we have a rehearsal - we'll work on FUNdamentals with the HMS Band Students and have them perform set 20 the L O V E set of Love Shack, maybe we'll also see how they do with the "snake set". Whatever, I want the AHS and HMS band students to have a great rehearsal with lots of fun, without losing focus. Oh, by the way -its' 59-0 patriots and it's snowing like crazy in Foxboro -better Foxboro than here! Seniors - Senior Night is our last home game November 6 - I will send a letter home with specifics.
