News From Your Director

Dear Parents & Students,

Welcome to Play-Off Football at Smithson Valley High School! Plans are made on a week to week basis, and things are ALWAYS exciting!

Here are some upcoming events/dates to be aware of:

This Friday - Play-Off Game #1 vs. Warren HS @ Ranger Stadium (7:30pm kickoff)
We will treat this like a normal home game, with a stadium run-through at 4:15pm and a meal for ALL students before the game.

Next Thursday (Nov. 17) - District Band Auditions, for those students choosing to participate.
We will have no after school marching rehearsal due to District Band Auditions. This rehearsal will need to be rescheduled for Wednesday (Nov. 16) after school if game #2 is scheduled for Friday (Nov. 18). If game #2 is scheduled for Saturday (Nov. 19), we will most likely meet a little early on Saturday and incorporate a rehearsal into the day's itinerary, rather than meet after school. Everyone's flexibility during play-offs is EXTREMELY appreciated!
Auditions take place at Johnson High School (we do not provide transportation)
Auditions take place AFTER SCHOOL (specific times will be out on Monday)
Some auditions (Flute, Clarinet, Percussion, & Alto Sax in particular) will go quite late... students should think ahead with regard to school work on Friday.

Thursday, December 1 - All-Region Band Auditions, for those who advance to this round, will be after school at Canyon High School (no transportation provided)

Thu-Fri, Dec. 8-9 @ 7pm - SVHS production of Bye Bye Birdie, music provided by members of the Wind Ensemble. (Auditorium)

Tuesday, December 13 - SVHS Band Holiday Concert @ 6:30pm in the Auditorium

Thanks, and have a GREAT RANGER DAY!
