Newsletter – Oct 23rd

Hi Band Families!

Wow, what an amazing month this has been so far… football games, 2 marching contests, Varsity Revue, Homecoming, etc! What a great group of kids we have! They have worked so hard all month and it has shown in their contest results and their performances.  So proud of all of our Wildcat Band kids!  We also have an amazing group of volunteers that have put in lots of time and energy to pull it all off this month – thank you to each and every one of you! Band volunteers rock!!!  And finally, thank you to our directors for teaching our kids, being there early and late, and for encouraging our kids to be the best kid they can be. We are so thankful to have such an amazing team of directors!

We have almost made it through Band-tober y’all, just one last major event (UIL) and a couple of football games.  Let’s pull out all the stops and finish strong.  We have some great stuff happening this week and I don’t want you to miss out on any of it.  We also still need adult volunteers for both UIL on Wednesday, October 25th and for the Jesuit game on Friday, October 27th.  I will put sign up links below the weekly schedule for you guys to sign up and have fun with the band this week!
