NBHSWMB Weekly Sheet 10/1-10/7

posted Oct 3, 2012, 8:33 AM by Eric Drew

Dear Whalers,


Great job last week as we continue to learn more of our field show and refine our performance of what we have already put out on the field.  Let's keep up the energy and work ethic that we have developed so far, and continue to earn success with our dedication and perseverance as the season progresses.


There are no performances this week, but we do have our normal rehearsals on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  Also, we will be holding the car wash this Sunday at Walgreen's near Trucchi's in the North end.  Please check the schedule in the band room for your shift time.


At the bottom of this page there is a weekly sheet for this week and a permission slip for students to have pizza for lunch at Saturday's rehearsal.  As a band spirit project, our students leadership team is running a pizza sale that is entirely voluntary for all students.  Any student who would like can return the permission form, and can purchase pizza for lunch.  $3 for two slices, $5 for four slices.  Any extra money from the purchase of the pizzas will go towards buying drinks for those who participate.  Students must also return the permission form in order to be allowed to buy pizza.


Thank you all for your hard work thus far.  We have much success to look forward to this year if we keep up this rate of improvement and achievement.  Go Whalers!


Yours in music,

Mr. Eric Drew
