W. Charles Akins High School Band - Austin, TX
Sectionals Begin This Week
Students are responsible for staying aware of their schedules for sectionals and full ensemble rehearsals.
Please check the band calendar frequently to make sure you attend all required rehearsals and events.
TMEA Area Auditions - Hosted by AEB on 1/13
Students will need to be at Akins at 7:30am and should be done by 5:00pm.
Not all students will be needed...specific assignments and instructions will be given on Tuesday.
The schedule will be very similar to when we hosted TMEA Region Auditions at the beginning of December. We have done a tremendous job hosting these events...one more to go!
Schedule Changes - Update
The counselors and Mr. Fincher are working as fast as possible to get schedules sorted out correctly.
Popcorn Fundraiser is On!
Each bag of popcorn sold for $2.00 will put $1.10 in your account. Take advantage of this opportunity to take care of all your fees!
We will be selling popcorn until January 19th.
If you have any fees that are owed...take advantage of this opportunity to pay them off easily and quickly.
Bring All Band Accounts Current ASAP
Unpaid fees put a significant financial strain on the band program as a whole.
Please, please, please take a look at your CHARMS account to see what money is owed and settle your account balance this week.
Directors will be calling home to work out payments this week...we must settle all accounts ASAP!
