UIL has arrived. This Thursday is the big day. The students have worked hard and we're ready for our performance. It is very important that our final days of preparation and rehearsals have 100% attendance. Please make sure your child is at school each day this week.
UIL is Thursday, April 10 at Burleson Centennial High School. Students need to arrive Thursday in their all black band uniform (band polo, black pants, black belt, black shoes, and black socks). They will report to the band hall at the beginning of 1st period.
We would love to have parents in attendance for our UIL performance. There is seldom an audience, and having people there to support our performance and applaud is very helpful and encouraging. Our Concert performance takes place in Centennial HS's auditorium at 10:40 AM. Immediately following the concert, we will go to the band hall for sight-reading at 11:05. You are invited to both portions of the concert.
Our schedule for Thursday:
8:05 Report to the band hall in all black for warm-up
9:15 Depart for Burleson Centennial HS
11:30 Load buses
12:00 Lunch at Chik-fil-A (students will be given $6; they may need to bring extra)
1:15 Arrive back at SMS
Please remember that this Monday is our final after school rehearsal from 6-8pm in the CHS band hall.
Our trip to Great Wolf Lodge is coming in just a month. All fees and payment are due this Friday, April 11. Our mandatory parent/student trip meeting is Monday, April 28 at 7pm.
Other upcoming Events and performances:
Monday, April 21 - Golden Pride Band Information meeting for 8th grade students and parents at CHS
