2023-24 Sumner HS Marching Band & Color Guard

(Updated 6/2/2024) 

....................................................................................

Welcome to June 2024 and our final month of the 2023-24 school-year. It’s a little early to start looking back as we’ve still got a very busy month ahead of us. Last week was the “calm before the storm” of performances and activities for our Sumner HS Band Program - thanks for doing a great job on Wednesday when Mr. Osborn visited and led you through our concert Symphonic Band pieces and for doing a great job at the stadium pep assembly on Friday. We’ve got a lot going on this week, especially on Wednesday when we have a morning performance at Sumner Middle School as well as our Spring Collage and Marching Band Concert - what a day it will be! Make sure you have everything ready and are prepared for a full-day of activities. Also plan on staying after school for a little bit on both Thursday and Friday this week if you can to take an active role in selecting our Drum Majors for the 2024-25 year, and don’t forget about our BIG Awards Dinner next Monday night June 10th (we’ve changed it from June 3rd). So let’s get going on a great week together:

Reminders:

  • GET YOUR PEP BAND AND MB-CG AND JE/SB UNIFORMS READY FOR OUR BIG PERFORMANCES ON WEDNESDAY
  • PAY YOUR B/P PARADE FEES IF YOU HAVEN’T YET
  • BE READY FOR OUR FINAL FULL-GROUP PERFORMANCES TOGETHER - WE’VE HAD A FANTASTIC YEAR AND WE WANT TO FINISH IT OFF WITH PEAK PERFORMANCES!

As we’ve mentioned, we really want to end with strong, confident, and quality performances for our audiences, many of whom are parents who have sat through years and years of concerts being proud of their family members. Especially for our seniors, who had a year+ taken away from them with the COVID situation, we want to show everyone that we have come back strong and will leave a positive legacy of being more than just survivors - they have thrived and done a fantastic job. I look forward to honoring them and showing them we are proud of their efforts. Let’s have a great week together and put on fantastic performances Wednesday. Thanks again to all of you for all that you do to support our Sumner HS Band Program.
