NEW UPDATES TO ELIGIBILITY
The most recent eligibility check was on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14 AT 4:25PM. YOU CAN STILL LOSE YOUR ELIGIBILITY EVEN IF YOU PASSED THE FIRST ELIGIBILITY CHECK. 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.
INELIGIBLE STUDENTS WILL NOT NEED TO ATTEND THIS WEEK OF REHEARSALS. THIS WILL ALLOW ELIGIBLE STUDENTS TO EVALUATE THE MARCHING DRILL WITH ALL OF THE ACCURATE PERFORMERS.
Students that had failing grades in an on-level class on Friday, October 13, will become ineligible beginning on Friday, October 20 at 4:25pm. These students will not be allowed to attend the following events:
10/27 FB @ Chaparral
10/28 UIL Area D Marching Contest
11/4 FB vs. University (Senior Night)
Students that were ineligible at the last eligibility check will regain eligibility if all on-level grades were 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.
All students that are CURRENTLY ELIGIBLE WILL REMAIN ELIGIBLE FOR THE REST OF THE SEMESTER.
The next eligibility check will be Friday, November 3rd at 4:25pm. Students that were ineligible at this time can regain their eligible status for the remainder of the semester on Friday, November 10 at 4:25pm.
BLUE BOOKS NEEDED FOR BAND CLASS
Students will need to have their blue books for band classes moving forward.
WIND ENSEMBLE START TIME BEFORE SCHOOL
Beginning this Wednesday, November 1, Wind Ensemble class will begin at 8:15am. This will mean anyone that would like to practice before school will have to go to a practice room. Wind Ensemble students, please arrive by 8:00am so that we can begin right at 8:15am with EVERYONE!
From now until region auditions are done, the band hall will be open after school until 5:30pm each day for anyone that would like to practice.
