2019-20 Sumner HS Spartan Band & Color Guard

(Updated 1/12/2020) 

....................................................................................                                                                                            
 
Well, the first school-week of 2020 is in the books, and I want to thank everyone for their great efforts as we get going again.  We had 3 Pep Band performances - 2 Basketball Games and our first Wrestling Match.  I really want to thank the students who showed up and performed at Saturday night's Boys Game - I know that we only had a couple of days notice, but we had over 75 in attendance (the free-pizza deal from Coach Jackson was a REALLY nice enticement).  I also want to congratulate and thank the 5 Sumner HS Band students who were a part of the 2020 Northwest HS Honor Band at PLU on Friday and Saturday: Emma Neumann, Liberty Stanton, Angela Statler, Mad Weyant, and Miranda Wojciechowicz.  These students worked very hard on being a part of these All-Star Groups and they represented our Band Program very well.
 
     Now we move on to another exciting week with the added interest of the weather.  Just to make sure everyone knows, if we have a weather-related LATE-START any morning then the Zero-Period Jazz Ensembles classes are CANCELLED.  If we have a SCHOOL-CLOSURE due to weather, then generally ALL ACTIVITIES INCLUDING EVENING REHEARSALS, PERFORMANCES, AND MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED.  Make sure you listen carefully to the District announcements and whatever is said is what we will do.  If everything, however, goes according to schedule this week then we have a lot of different things going on:
  • Monday's SBPA Meeting will have special guests Superintendent Dr. Laurie Dent and Sumner HS Principal Kassie Meath, who will be discussing the upcoming votes on the Bond and Levy issues.  I've told the students that it would really send a good message if we have lots of students and parents in attendance, as we are one of the most visible groups in the District and we want to be as informed as possible as these important votes approach in February.
  • Tuesday we already start to look ahead to 2020-21 as we host our annual Curriculum Showcase at Sumner HS.  While this event is geared toward future students (especially the 8th Grade students and families), we'll show-off our 3 Jazz Ensembles in performance (current parents and families are of course welcome) in the Band Room, as well as having some of our student-leaders in attendance to describe our Sumner HS Band Program.  The performances start at 6:00PM Tuesday, so spread the word to have people drop-by and hear our groups.
  • Wednesday we have one of our Pep Band BIG GAMES as we have a FULL-GROUP performance as our Girls BB Team faces Puyallup HS.  This will be our first performance this season in our purple polo shirts.
  • Friday is our second Girls BB Pep Band performance of the week, and this one will be a voluntary performance event.  We're having a lot of fun supporting our winning teams this season, so let's keep it up as we start the 3-day ML King Weekend.
A few other things to remember:
  • This is the FINAL WEEK FOR HAWAII PAYMENTS.  Please get all payments in by Friday to the box in my office
  • Solo-Ensemble Contest Sign-Ups are due JANUARY 22, and I really want to encourage ALL Band Students to consider being a part of this great experience 
Here's our upcoming schedule - keep alert to any changes:
