We hope that you all have a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving break!
While you have the time, now is a great time to clean out your mouthpiece, send in your instrument for repair, and/or purchase new reeds, valve oil, or any accessories needed. Auxiliary students should also use this time to start purchasing the attire they need for Winterfest!
Here’s some information on a POSSIBLE playoff game in December as well as Winterfest information.
Upcoming Events after Thanksgiving Break:
After School Concert Band Rehearsals (Start Tues. 12/1): The concert bands will start their after-school rehearsals after Thanksgiving Break on Tuesday, December 1st. These practices will help to prepare for Winterfest. These rehearsals will take place in the Faculty Parking Lot. Please drop off and pick-up up students by the flagpole.
Cheesecake Fundraiser Pick-up (Thurs. 12/3): All orders will be available for pick-up starting at 2:05pm until 6:00pm. Please make arrangements for your student to pick-up their order sometime after school. Please keep in mind that these cheesecakes come frozen, so it’s very important that all students pick-up and deliver their orders in a timely manner.
POSSIBLE Home Play-off Game (Fri. 12/4): If the football team wins their game this Friday, they will have another play-off game at PRHS and the Marching Pride will attend and perform! If we have the game, the start time for students will be 7:00pm. Report time for the game will be as followed: Officers – 6:30pm, Low Brass, Percussion, Auxiliary, and Mellos – 6:40pm, Trumpets, Saxes, Flutes, and Clarinets – 6:50pm. The uniform for band will be green band t-shirt or football play-off t-shirt, band shorts or black pants, black socks, dark gym shoes, music masks, and black bell covers on the instrument. The uniform for auxiliary will be green band t-shirt or football play-off t-shirt, black leggings, tights, dark gym shoes, music masks, high slicked back ponytail for hair, and black smokey eye for make-up.
Music Masks: All students are being reminded to take care of their music masks. We have very few extras at this point. Please do not lose your masks as you will need them for all performances. Woodwind and brass students are also expected to wear their music masks in band class as much as possible.
