What a great performance this past Friday. I got many compliments on the students' performance quality and etiquette from the last game. I cannot not tell you how proud I am to direct such a fine group of students.
Please use the link below to as a guide to subscribe to the PCHS Band Blog. I will communicate with all Band Parents and Students via the blog due to the cumbersome nature of teacherease. Once subscribed, you will be forwarded all blog communications via the email of your choice. This will be the last communication via teacherease from the band room.
We will be having 2 selling FUNdraisers this year, both during the first semester. The first is the Otis Spunkmeyer/Little Caesars Pizza Kits which is occurring now. The students were handed the forms on September 23rd and will be collected on Oct. 2nd.
Participation is essential as the bands are planning on going on tour this April. All monies from this fundraiser will go toward the student's personal account.
Order Pickup will be on Oct. 10th from 4:00pm to 6:30pm @ the PHS Band room.
Marching Uniform Collection/Concert Uniform Distribution:
Collection and Distribution of uniforms will take place on November 16th from 9 – 4. We need many adults and a few students (service hours can be earned) to help with this huge event. We will be collecting marching uniforms, taking out hems, repairing holes in pants, repairing zippers, cleaning hats and hat boxes, cleaning and repairing garment bags and issuing concert uniforms. If you have an ironing board, iron, sewing machine, needles and black thread and some time to donate please consider joining us in the band room on November 16th. Please contact Cherie Rowse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring Tour - NYC 2013
Your students were sent home with a tour proposal for this April. You may download the proposal on this site under 2013-14/Spring Tour. It is still pending board approval. It will go infront of the board later this week. As soon as we have approval Mr. Campbell and I will set up a payment plan asap.
Homecoming Week 2013 -
Please be aware that the call time for the marching band this friday is 3:30pm in full uniform for the homecoming parade. We will need to be ready to load the busses at 3:45 to make it downtown before the roads are closed. There will be no rehearsal before the game on friday due to the parade. Everything else should be similar. Please be aware that this game will be crowded.
The Homecoming game has a 60% chance of rain. This is a reminder that we do not wear our white coats if it is raining. (We do this to avoid mildew, which will ruin the jackets). Students need to wear a warm red, black, or white clothing underneath their rain coats to avoid getting sick.
All the Best,
