School Daze - Wednesday 9/7/11

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY! P L E A S E !!

No matter what the weather is the Alvirne High School Bronco Marching Band and Colorguard will have Wednesday night rehearsals. YEP! We literally took over the first floor at AHS tonight. Special thanks to our Senior Drum Majors - Matt & Kelly and Jr. Drum Major Heather as well as our sectional leaders: Heather, Tara, Farrah, Lauren and Adam. Yeah, I did my share as well but the student musicians and Adam really deserve the credit. Extra Special thanks to Kelly, Matt & Heather for all the help they gave Mrs. B in organizing the infamous flip folders.
I DON'T GET IT - How is it that we never have enough flip folders?!? Are you guys taking them home and feeding them to your pets?

Regardless, I was proud of all the student leaders and our young musicians and colorguard members for the EXTRA effort with our indoor practice. Thank you Mrs. Jutras for hanging with us for 2 1/2 hours, taking candids and finishing up the senior pictures. Remember students - if you did not attend this evening you will have 3 days to make up tonight's rehearsal YES, Wednesday night rehearsal count towards your grade WHY? you ask - because we are a team and everyone plays an important role.

A few reminders for students and parents. Tomorrow I will distribute a letter for the upcoming pancake breakfast(Sept 17) during A, DE and J period. Choir students will also be receiving the same letter during their instructional periods. The pie fundraiser information will also go out to everyone tomorrow.

Again, I don't want to be a nag but tomorrow night is the first general FOM meeting.
PARENTS - please plan to attend as there will be information on the upcoming fundraiser, Sunday's performance in regards to the 9/11 celebration and the Gillette Stadium performance on Oct. 1.

OK, it's getting late and I need my toast and hot chocolate :-)

Good Night!
Mr. B
