SENIOR JACKETS: There was a fitting originally scheduled for April 24th Which will need to be rescheduled. Here’s the response from SSR, the jacket company’s rep. in his last email:
Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, the company will be following school schedules to determine appropriate times to schedule future fitting / order dates.
Currently, their Dallas plant, like all non-essential businesses, is closed.
They will not proceed on any “new” orders until the schools reopen. Once schools open, they will do everything they can to accommodate schools in rescheduling dates. In the event that they do not begin until next August, they will push all of the spring dates to August and September. This will still give them time to get the jackets back to students before cold weather hits.
SENIOR TRIP UPDATE:
The senior trip has been cancelled. The latest communication from the trip company is this:
“We have to wait on the refunds from Disney and that should take about 4-6 weeks. Because of the current situation and everyone working from home now including the vendors it might take longer. Southwest (airlines) is going to give gift cards for the amount of the ticket and they are working on how each participant will receive the gift cards for future use. As soon as I know I will get back to you.”
More information will be shared as soon as it is received. Thank you.
SENIOR SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY:
From McLennan Community College: Here is a scholarship/recruitment link. Their scholarship deadline has been extended to May 15 in order accommodate students during this hectic time. More info can be found at McLennan.edu/bands<http://mclennan.edu/bands>.

No other steps are necessary for section leader or guard applicants other than filling out the google form.
DRUM MAJOR AUDITIONS:
We will host a virtual meeting for Thursday, April 16th at 1:00pm. We will be using Zoom for this meeting. This platform has both video and audio capabilities. Some of you may be familiar with the software. It is user friendly for anyone who has not used it. You can use a computer or a smartphone for video/audio, or you can just call in to participate with just audio. (please email Shannon.firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not know how to use Zoom or have a conflict with this meeting time)
PLEASE ONLY LOG ON TO THIS MEETING IF YOU ARE AUDITIONING FOR DRUM MAJOR.

VIRTUAL MARCHING WORKSHOPS:
Coming soon! Mr. Kwaku will present some virtual marching workshops available this month for students to view and learn (or refresh their memories) the fundamentals of marching technique at BHS. These videos will help all students prepare for marching season next year. More information to come!
NEW MEMBER POWER POINT:
A new member power point will be made available by the end of this month. This virtual “new member” meeting will have information about band and what will occur in the Summer, Fall and Spring Semesters. This information is mainly geared toward new members but would be good for anyone who will be joining us in the M100 next year as there are new dates, events, and some minor changes on the horizon. All information will be presented with the idea that we will be able to start Summer Band as it is scheduled on our band calendar and go forward from there as normal throughout the school year (fingers crossed!!)
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Plans for the Fall 2020 Marching show are progressing nicely – we have a theme, we have a design staff consisting of some of the best music arrangers, drill designer, and visual esthetic designers in the state, the show music is being arranged, drill writing will begin soon, we have props, we have designs approved for vinyl coverings for props, flags, guard costumes, and we are super excited about how this show is taking shape already! Everybody is continuing to work to bring you the best possible product on time and ready for the Fall!
