UIL Rehearsal for Honors Band & Wind Symphony Students

Monday, March 1st, 4:15-6pm

4405 Hudson Drive

Sachse, TX

All UIL participants will have their next rehearsal this week. Please drop off in the BACK of the school and have students enter directly into the band hall through the door with the platform. Students will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter. ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR MASKS! Don't forget your instrument and band binder/music!

Pickup will also be in the BACK of the school, outside of the band hall. We can't wait to see you again!!!

Permission Slip for UIL

For all Wind Symphony & Honors Band students, please make sure your student returns their Field Trip Permission Slip ASAP. This form is required since we will be recording at Sachse High School for these two performances. Thank you to those who have already returned the form!

Pre-UIL Attire

For our Wind Symphony and Honors Band students participating in UIL, they will all need solid black clothing from head-to-toe for our recording performance on Tuesday, March 2. We will use this uniform for both the Pre-UIL and UIL recording concerts. Please make sure all clothes are SOLID black (including shoes).

Pre-UIL Performance/Recording Event

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2:30-4:30pm

3901 Miles Road

Sachse, TX

All Face-to-Face Wind Symphony and Honors Band students and Virtual students from those classes who have opted IN to the UIL performance will WALK to Sachse High School on Tuesday, March 2 to record our performance for Pre-UIL. Students will be released from 8th period and will need to wear HEAD-TO-TOE BLACK CLOTHING for the performance.

**If your student is virtual and participating, please drop them off at the front door of Sachse HS at 2:45pm.**


Parents are not allowed to attend the performance, but we will share our recording with you!

We are recording at Sachse High School because they have more space for our group to safely perform and our recording will sound MUCH better than if we recorded in our gym or cafeteria.

5th Graders Joining Band

If you have any siblings, cousins, friends, neighbors, etc. currently in the 5th grade and planning to attend Hudson next year, please encourage them to sign up for band. They can find all the information they need to sign up, find the perfect instrument fit, and more at our band website.

Our current band families are always wonderful advocates for our band program and we would be very grateful for any encouragement you can give to our future band families!

Big picture

It's never too late to get started in private lessons! If you want your student to catch up, get ahead, or just get more reinforcement, click below to sign up.

Helpful Info/Reminders

School-Owned Instrument Usage Fees

The $50 per year ($25/semester) fee charged by GISD for students who use a school-owned instrument (oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, tenor sax, bari sax, French horn, euphonium, and tuba) has now been assessed to your student's Skyward account. The payment for the use of the school instrument is due by March 1, but can be paid online anytime now. You can use a credit card in Skyward or send cash/check (made out to Hudson Middle School) with your student to school. Further details about how to pay online will be sent soon for those who need extra help completing their payment.

**Occasionally, we have students that play other instruments, not listed above, who use a school-owned instrument. The fee has been assessed to those students as well.**
