Band News 01/08/15

As we settle back into the new year, I wanted to send out the schedule of the MAIN Events for the second semester.  Also, please remember that we have Jazz Band rehearsals on Mondays to prepare for the Jazz MPA and also we have concert band rehearsals on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rehearsals are from 2:30pm – 4:00pm.

Next week there will not be a rehearsal on Thursday.  Enjoy your long weekend.

We have county inventory going on right now.  I have located all instruments except one Bass Clarinet. If you took this instrument home please bring it in tomorrow as I need to get it checked off.

Saturday, March 14 is the date of the FFCC winterguard show that we host.  This is a great way for the band raise funds.  Last year we were told that we hosted the BEST show FFCC has seen in a long time.  I know that we can do EVEN BETTER this year.  We will have a meeting very soon concerning the logistics and what we need to do for this show.

Update from Mr. D 12/18/14
Posted on 12/19/2014

Hello everyone,

I hope this greeting finds everyone doing well!
If your child uses a school owned instrument we will need it to be returned to the school either Friday 12/19/14, or the first day back from break (all marching band instruments should have been returned already). We have an audit on all of our equipment after we return from the holiday break, so we will need them all back for that. Thank you for your help with this!
Lastly, from our families to yours, we would like to wish everyone very Happy Holiday’s, and a Happy New Year! Thank you all for everything that you do, and for helping make our program what it is today!
Your Band Director’s,
Davenport and Futrell
