News From Your Director

October 30, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

What a CRAZY couple of weeks!! As you may know already, tonight’s football game vs. New Braunfels has been postponed due to weather concerns. The game has been postponed until tomorrow (Saturday) at NOON at New Braunfels Stadium. We WILL be taking the Ranger Band to the game in order to represent our school and our community. I think it goes without saying that students who are unable to participate due to unavoidable conflicts will not be penalized in any way, but we would like to create the strongest presence possible. The possibility of performing at halftime will rely completely on the level of student participation.

Meet time will be 9am at the SVHS Band Hall. We will not be able to put any kind of pre-game meal together on such short notice, so students should please bring a sack lunch to eat on the bus. Dress will be Ranger Band Uniform, with hats, gloves, gauntlets, and ponchos in hatboxes.

Our Band Halloween Dance is still on for 6pm-9pm, but students may now want to bring their costumes with them when they arrive in the morning and plan on staying at school until the dance begins, as we will probably arrive back on campus from the game around 4:30pm. We are working on getting pizza up here for dinner.

Thanks, Ranger Band, for staying flexible!!!

Matt Boening
