HILL COUNTRY MARCHING FESTIVAL RESULTS

On Saturday, September 30, the Marching 100 performed at the Hill Country Marching Festival in Fredericksburg, TX.

Pablo Ureste also received an Outstanding Soloist award for his Tenor Trombone solo!


You can watch a video of our performance by clicking HERE! (Thank you Mr. Pulley and Mr. Morehouse for the video!)


ELIGIBILITY STILL MATTERS!

The next eligibility check will occur on Friday, October 14th at 4:25pm. ANY STUDENT WITH A GRADE BELOW A 70 IN AN ON-LEVEL CLASS WILL BECOME INELIGIBLE THE FOLLOWING WEEK. NO FOOTBALL GAMES, NO MARCHING CONTESTS.


  1. STUDENTS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO ATTEND REHEARSALS IF THEY ARE INELIGIBLE. In the event that a student regains their eligibility, attending rehearsals will prevent the need to catch up after three weeks.

  2. Students that had failing grades in an on-level class on Friday, September 22, will become ineligible beginning on Friday, September 29 at 4:25pm. These students will not be allowed to attend the following events:

9/29 FB vs. Elgin

9/30 Hill Country Marching Festival

10/6 FB @ Rouse

10/7 Vista Ridge Marching Festival

10/13 FB vs. Connally

10/14 UIL Region 8 Marching Contest

  1. Students will be able to regain eligibility if all on-level grades are a 70 or above on the date of the next eligibility check, which is Friday, October 13. Eligibility will be reinstated on Friday, October 20th at 4:25pm.

  2. Since Friday, October 13 is the last day of the 9 week grading period, STUDENTS CAN STILL LOSE THEIR ELIGIBILITY AT THIS TIME! It is imperative that all students continue to monitor their grades, even if they passed the first eligibility check.

  3. All students that are eligible at the next eligibility check will be eligible for the rest of the semester.


10/2 BAND BOOSTER MEETING

There will be a Band Booster meeting this Monday, October 2 in the commons at 6:30pm. Pre-orders that were made should be available at the meeting tomorrow.

For this Wednesday’s rehearsal, we will begin at the practice field, then move to the stadium once it is cleared for the football game. Due to the transition needed in this rehearsal, we will end at 8:15pm.


10/6 AWAY FOOTBALL GAME @ ROUSE HS

Our next football game of the season will be an away game against Rouse HS at Bible Stadium in Leander, TX. You can view the itinerary for the game by clicking HERE, or by checking the “Itineraries” tab on the front page of the band website!

10/14 UIL REGION 8 CONTEST IMPORTANT INFO

The Marching 100 will be performing at the Vista Ridge Marching Festival this Saturday, October 14 at 4:15pm!


THERE WILL BE A SOLAR ECLIPSE ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14! IT IS VERY DANGEROUS TO LOOK AT THE SUN DURING THE ECLIPSE WITHOUT PROPER EYE PROTECTION! NEVER LOOK AT A SOLAR ECLIPSE WITH REGULAR SUNGLASSES! YOU MAY CAUSE IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO YOUR EYESIGHT!!!


Due to the solar eclipse, we will NOT have a rehearsal that morning, as the time of our rehearsal would happen right when it is most dangerous. Students and parents, please be very cautious between 9am and 11am on Saturday, October 14. It would be very unfortunate to be unable to perform successfully at UIL due to damaged eyesight!

VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED

Parents and guardians, please click on the following links to access the sign-ups for volunteering throughout the season! The M100 would not be the organization that it is without the support of the parents and boosters, and volunteering your time is one of the best ways to keep the M100 going strong!


PIT AND PROP HELPERS, BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR TIMING AND INSTRUCTIONS BY TUESDAY.


WE HAVE A NEW “VIDEOGRAPHER” SLOT OPEN FOR A VOLUNTEER TO TAKE A VIDEO OF OUR HALFTIME PERFORMANCES. Please click the “PROP PUSHING SIGN-UP” link below to view the volunteer slot. Thank you!
