NBHSWMB Weekly Sheet 10/22-10/28

Dear Whalers,

This is our last week of competitive marching band for the 2012 season.  Let's focus all of our energy toward putting on the best performance possible this weekend.  Practice hard, and come to rehearsals ready to play and march your best every minute.  That is the kind of work ethic that will earn us success at New England Championships on Saturday.

Parents: Several people have mentioned to me that they are available to help out a competitions with moving equipment and chaperoning.  Also, in order to participate, we need to provide two volunteers to work at finals.  I requested that our shift not interfere with our performance time so that no one would miss our students' performance.  A such, the work shift is 3:30pm to 5:30pm.  Any parents willing to volunteer may ride the bus to Lawrence and back if they would like.  If you would like to help with equipment or work at the competition, please email me ASAP and I will set up a list.

For everyone's information, beginning Tuesday, October 30, evening rehearsals will be held 5:30pm-8:30pm rather than the current 5pm-9pm.

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Yours in music,
Mr. Eric Drew
