*Food for next 2 Games:
The home game choice next week will be a burger or cheeseburger from Whataburger, chips, and dessert. Mrs. Masters can collect $5 on Monday before and after practice only. She has to have the order to the restaurant by Tuesday morning. NO LATE MONEY OR ORDERS ACCEPTED. (you can go off campus or bring food from home if you choose not to order)
The away game choice for Sept. 26 is 3 chicken fingers or a grilled chicken sandwich from Zaxby’s. Each comes with coleslaw, chips, and a brownie. She has to have the order to them a week before. The link will be open until Wednesday night (9/18). Everyone gets food, the choice just helps us know how much to order of each one.
*9/20 Game Uniform - We will be in FULL UNIFORM FOR THIS GAME!
Marching jacket, marching pants (bibbers), shako (hat), black marching
Shoes, long black socks, unders-black M100 under shirt, black M100
Shorts, black gloves. You must have all parts of the uniform.
*STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE FOOTBALL GAMES STARTING ON 9/20 IF THEY DO NOT HAVE ALL OF THEIR ITEMS AT INSPECTION!!!! We make every effort to help students go to the game - let them borrow used shoes or purchase a pair of socks from the uniform room or go fill up water bottle if it is not full upon inspection (if time), however, please ensure your child has everything they need for each game. WE HAVE THESE RULES IN PLACE AND WE WILL ENFORCE THEM AS THERE HAS BEEN PLENTY OF TIME FOR STUDENTS TO ACCLIMATE TO THE ROUTINE OF FOOTBALL GAME NIGHTS AND REQUIREMENTS. In addition to the above uniform requirements, we will begin enforcing stricter rules on the following (to ensure uniformity amongst members):
long hair must not stick out of the shako when worn, so long hair needs to be up in a tight bun. All fly-aways need to be pinned to the heat and sprayed with hairspray. DO NOT SPRAY ANY AEROSOL SPRAYS ANYWHERE BUT IN A RESTROOM! SEVERAL STUDENTS HAVE ASTHMA AND THESE SPRAYS CAN CAUSE THEM SERIOUS HARM. , No Jewelry whatsoever. Hair ties must be black, head bands may be worn but they too must be black. The idea is for us all to look uniform. There is also no eating in uniform. If you have a medical condition which requires you to eat during the game, let a director know asap (we should know already).
*Eligibility - Remember - All students must be passing ALL CLASSES by September 27, 2019 to be eligible for all of our contests this season. If a student fails on this day (the 6 weeks grade check) they are ineligible for all of our contests (except the one on the 28th). PLEASE - ALL STUDENTS - PASS ALL YOUR CLASSES ON SEPT. 27!!!!!
*Please make sure your child is hydrating throughout the day at school (water and/or Gatorade type drinks) and eating healthy meals so they are healthy and up to the challenge of marching band. This is especially important on game and contest days. STUDENTS MUST TAKE HOME WATER BOTTLES EVERYDAY AND RINSE/WASH THEM OUT!!!
Too many are left daily with water in them. Bacteria breeds and this can lead to sickness which means students will lose rehearsal and school time and get behind. That is not good for anybody! Be more careful about hygiene and what you put in your body please - for your own health!
*Make sure All Band members sign up for Tiger Time on Monday 9/16 to watch the video of the show from Friday. Leadership - sign up for a meeting on Tues., 9/17. Mr. Kwaku will open up Tiger Time for you to sign up. No one except leadership sign up on Tues. please. Thanks!
*Contest days are coming! 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, and 10/19. Please reserve the entire day for the first 3 contest. UIL on the 19th will take up probably about half a day. Itineraries to come when we get final performance times from contest hosts. Thank you!
