A message from mr. Lucita
Wow, cannot believe that we have hit the end of summer band already!! There are only two days left! I am so impressed with how hard the students have worked and much everyone has gotten in just two weeks. I also encourage parents to come hang out in the Jaguar Den and watch the last part of rehearsal! The students love an audience! Plus you get to network with other band parents!
Now for a quick look at what is happening this week. We have evening rehearsals on Monday and Tuesday from 5:30-8:30. This will be the same evening schedule we have had during summer band. Wednesday there is NO rehearsal! Thursday starts our regular weekly rehearsals! Please note that our regular weekly rehearsals follow a different time schedule. Monday & Tuesday 5:00-8:00, Thursday 5:00-7:00 and Friday mornings 7:30-8:30. Please remember that if we have a Thursday night game we will flip our Thursday & Friday schedule. Students, make sure you bring your instrument and a change of clothes to school on Thursday, the first day of school; we will play in class and we have marching practice after school 5:00-7:00. Our start time during the school week starts at 5:00, NOT 5:30. This is adjusted since students are already at school and do not need to wait for parents to get home from work in order to bring them to rehearsal. It gives everyone about 30 minutes to eat an afternoon snack and change cloths before rehearsal; it also allows us finish 30 minutes earlier.
Please keep a close look on the calendar as there are times where we have to make adjustments to our schedule. One upcoming item that may be added to the calendar during the week of home coming (week of 9/6) is a short practice with the homecoming court, dance, guard and announcer. We are working with all groups to schedule a time that fits everyone’s schedule. Once determined we will post and let everyone know.
Lastly we are about to start passing out summer uniform items. Our first game is rapidly approaching and we want everyone ready to go! If you have not already done so please make sure you have your flip folder and lyre. These are required as part of the inspection process.
Let’s have an awesome last two days of summer band and an even better first week of school! As always “It’s A Great Day To Be A Jaguar”!

Carpooling to Band
If you are interested in communicating with others about carpooling or you are willing to help carpool members to practice, please click on the button below and fill out the form. *Another good way to organize carpooling is to contact your section via your section's GroupMe. If you are not yet connected, contact your Parent Section Lead.
Game Day Meal Plan
The deadline to purchase the Game Day Meal Plan is August 15. The Game Day meal plan is intended for marching students and is optional but HIGHLY recommended. It is extremely difficult to bring your child meals after school on game days. In addition, students are not allowed to leave campus on football game days to get food and are not permitted to visit the concession stand or have food delivered by friends or family during football games. Students are to remain with the band during the entirety of the football game.
