Clark High School Band

Weekly Update (October 5 - 9)

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Great performance this past week with the Vines Band! This week we plan to learn visual elements to enhance our show as well as work on cleaning the drill and music. Remember: to be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late and to be late is unacceptable.


  • Students must continue to submit their daily self-screening before arriving on campus for before school rehearsals...NEW Covid form for this week below
  • Rehearsals start promptly at 7:00 am (students must be in their spot to be called to attention at 7:00 am)
  • Rehearsals will end at 8:15 am


Please take note: Change in before school rehearsal schedule the week of Oct. 26. Since we have a stadium rehearsal on Wednesday evening and a game on Thursday evening, we will have FULL BAND before school on Tuesday, Oct. 27 with NO before school on Wednesday (stadium rehearsal day) and Thursday mornings.


REMINDERS:

School owned instrument user fees should be paid via Ryco. See information below for link and the form that I must have completed, signed and scanned/emailed back to me. This is for any student using school owned instruments (Oboe, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Tenor/Bari Sax, Horn, Bass Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba and Percussion). If a student uses a school owned marching and concert instrument the fee is still only 85.00/year.


Stay well and healthy!

Have a GREAT week!

Each student and parent volunteer must complete this form prior to arriving on campus for before school rehearsals (link below). Thank you!
