Clark High School Band

Weekly Update (October 5 - 9)

ANNOUNCEMENTS

What a FUN night we had at the game on Thursday!! All of the costumes were so fun!!

This week will have us working on cleaning our drill and fine tuning our show for our upcoming UIL performance. Please note that since Tuesday is a student holiday, we will not have rehearsal on Tuesday morning. 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


School owned instrument user fees should be paid via Ryco. Less than half of our students who use a school owned instrument has paid this fee. 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!

Daily Covid Self-Screening (Nov. 2 - 6)

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