News From Your Director

September 12, 2017

Dear Parents & Students,

Notes for this week:
No marching band rehearsal this Wednesday (tomorrow)!! It’s an early release day!

Football game vs. Round Rock HS this Friday @ Ranger Stadium. We will be in full uniform for the first time… students need to have their black ranger band t-shirt, along with long black socks, marching shoes, and lightweight shorts. We will have a stadium rehearsal immediately following school, then pre-game meals will be served shortly after 5:00pm for those who ordered them. Kick-Off is at 7:30pm, and students should be ready to be picked up from the Band Hall/Rotunda end of the building at about 10:30pm. STUDENTS MUST TAKE THEIR INSTRUMENTS, MUSIC, AND CAMELBAKS HOME WITH THEM AFTER THE GAME (DRUMS AND TUBAS WILL NEED TO BE PACKED UP AND LOADED ON A TRAILER).

Saturday is the annual Bulverde Jubilee Parade! The band will meet at 10:15am in Bulverde (map attached), with instruments and music, and wearing summer uniform (with Camelbak). The performance should be over around noon. This is a required performance and any conflicts (including the SAT make-up date) need to be communicated to Mr. Vereen at

Finally, the “Snap” fundraiser that was rolled out at Meet the Band Night will begin next week. Students will be bringing home an instruction page with a form on the back to fill in email addresses. Please return this form to a band director by this Friday, September 15th.

Thanks, and have a Great Ranger Day!

Matt Boening
