News From Your Director

November 16, 2017

Dear Parents & Students,

First, I would like to sincerely thank you all for the wonderfully thoughtful baskets you presented to the Directors yesterday afternoon after rehearsal. We don't do what we do for the glory or the paycheck, so it is all the more humbling when parents and students appreciate what we do enough to present a show of thanks like we witnessed yesterday. Students, I am honored by your hard work and sacrifice all season long, and could not ask for a better group of students to be associated with. Parents, I am honored to have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful and hardworking group, and thankful to call many of you my friends. Smithson Valley is a special place and yesterday was a great reminder of how blessed I am to be a part of the community here!

Second, I would like to quickly update you on possible playoff game #2: When the Rangers win tomorrow :), our next game will take place on Friday, November 24th at 1:00PM. The location will be Alamo Stadium (next to the San Antonio Zoo). We have set a call time for the band of 9:00AM, and we will feed lunch to all students. Full itinerary is attached, and we will confirm via email and Remind after the game tomorrow.

Thanks!

Matt Boening
