News From Your Director

October 12, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

Last week was certainly a roller coaster! The students worked incredibly hard all week long, and improved their show on all fronts. Unfortunately, we had a bit of a rocky run on Saturday and did not perform anywhere close to our potential. That being said, I was informed over the weekend that there was an error made and the Ranger Band placed 3rd, not 4th. Needless to say, we will be working hard this week to ensure that we don't run into the same problems at UIL that we did this past Saturday.

I have attached a copy the UIL Itinerary. Call time is 9:00am at Ranger Stadium. The band will perform at 2:45pm at Judson Stadium. Ratings will be announced around 5:45pm, and we will be back at SVHS around 7:30pm. Students will need to bring a sack lunch again to eat on the bus.

Parents, I hope to see you all there on Saturday... the turnout at the Rocket Review was really great and I know the students appreciated the strong support!!

Have a Great Ranger Week!
