News From Your Director

October 18, 2016

Dear Parents & Students,

We are super proud of the efforts put forth by the Ranger Band this past weekend, particularly in the Final Competition where they delivered their best show yet! And now, on to UIL Marching Contest this Saturday. This is our most important contest of the season and one where we will not be ranked among other bands, but rather we compete against a “standard,” earning a division rating. We hope to see lots of parent support this Saturday as we perform at 3:30pm at Heroes Stadium here in San Antonio. Come out and cheer the students on!

This week:

Friday – Football game vs. Canyon (home) – Kickoff 7:30pm
Run-through at 4:15pm
Pre-game meal shortly after 5:00pm
Students will meet in parade block by 6:15pm, dressed and ready.

Saturday – UIL Marching Contest - Itinerary
Call time for students is 10:00am at Ranger Stadium
We will provide lunch for ALL students
Performance time is 3:30pm
Ratings announced at approx. 6:45pm
Students may bring cash for concessions if they wish
Estimated time back at SVHS: 7:45pm

Hopefully all students took their uniform home to wash after Saturday’s contest. All uniforms should be returned and hung up on the racks in the band hall. Parents, thanks for your help on this!

Thanks, and have a great week!
