News From Your Director

September 12, 2017

Dear Parents & Students,

Notes for this week:
No marching band rehearsal this Wednesday (tomorrow)!! It’s an early release day!

Football game vs. Round Rock HS this Friday @ Ranger Stadium. We will be in full uniform for the first time… students need to have their black ranger band t-shirt, along with long black socks, marching shoes, and lightweight shorts. We will have a stadium rehearsal immediately following school, then pre-game meals will be served shortly after 5:00pm for those who ordered them. Kick-Off is at 7:30pm, and students should be ready to be picked up from the Band Hall/Rotunda end of the building at about 10:30pm. STUDENTS MUST TAKE THEIR INSTRUMENTS, MUSIC, AND CAMELBAKS HOME WITH THEM AFTER THE GAME (DRUMS AND TUBAS WILL NEED TO BE PACKED UP AND LOADED ON A TRAILER).

Saturday is the annual Bulverde Jubilee Parade! The band will meet at 10:15am in Bulverde (map attached), with instruments and music, and wearing summer uniform (with Camelbak). The performance should be over around noon. This is a required performance and any conflicts (including the SAT make-up date) need to be communicated to Mr. Vereen at Dain.Vereen@ComalISD.org.

Finally, the “Snap” fundraiser that was rolled out at Meet the Band Night will begin next week. Students will be bringing home an instruction page with a form on the back to fill in email addresses. Please return this form to a band director by this Friday, September 15th.

Thanks, and have a Great Ranger Day!

Matt Boening
