News From Your Director

November 21, 2015

Dear Parents & Students,

Our next game has been confirmed for this coming Friday at 7pm at Buccanneer Stadium in Corpus Christi. A full itinerary has been attached, but students should plan on arriving at SVHS with enough time to have their instrument down on the practice pad by 12:30pm. Roll-Check/Inspection will take place at 1:00pm on the practice pad. Arrival back at SVHS should be around 1:00am.

Play-off games the weekend after Thanksgiving always present some unique challenges to work around family plans, etc. (I am working a messy group text with my extended family to alter MY plans even as I am typing this!). Since everyone on the football team is expected to be at the game, however, so is the Dance Team, the Cheerleaders, and the Band. As before, this will be a required, graded performance, and legitimate conflicts will need to be email to dain.vereen@comalisd.org as soon as possible. From quite a bit of personal experience, having a winning team in the play-offs does great things for the culture and morale of our school community (not to mention that this will be a fun trip once we all manage to get ourselves off the couch after eating too much :). See you Friday!

Thanks, and have a GREAT RANGER THANKSGIVING!
