2018-19 Sumner HS Spartan Band & Color Guard

10/8 thru 10/21 (Updated 10/7/18) 

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

Thanks for another excellent week with both our rehearsals and our performances at a very exciting Home Football Game on Thursday night and the Come Walk With Me Breast Cancer Awareness event on Saturday Morning.  We do so many different things, whether it is support of our athletic teams, representing our School and District, and sometimes helping to be a part of a great cause.  We appreciate the dedication of students and their families in the many things that we do, and we keep moving forward with new challenges each week.  The next 2 weeks are 4-day class-weeks, but we'll be kept busy this week with a Drumline performance (in the morning) and a Home Football Game performance this Friday evening, followed by a Pre-Competition Field Show rehearsal at either Lakeridge or Sumner Middle School (we'll know later this week, as Lakeridge's turf-field is not yet completely finished).  We're now under 2 weeks until our first field show competition at the Harvest Marching Band Festival in Yakima on October 20th, so things are starting to get close.  Let's hope for good weather and let's keep working hard - the goals are starting to come into sight.  A couple of additional items:
  • To make it so we won't have to give-up another evening, we're combining our initial Information Meeting concerning our possible MB-CG Trip to Hawaii on Thursday October 18 at 6:30PM in the SHS Band Room with our monthly SBPA Meeting which will start right after the trip-meeting.  We've got big plans for a fantastic trip, but nothing's been decided-on yet.  This trip would be in March 2020 and would involve current 9th, 10th, 11th, and 8th Graders.  Obviously lots more information, the time-line, and potential costs will be presented at this meeting, so we hope that you can attend.
  • I've included in the BLAST another updated October and November Sumner HS Band Calendar, with a couple of changes to add from last week;  the meeting on the 18th mentioned above, the Jazz A performance on Tuesday October 30th for the Daffodil Princess Ceremony at SHS, and the change of our Field Show Pre-Competition rehearsal on Saturday November 3rd originally scheduled from 9:00AM-12:00PM to a NEW time of 2:00-5:00PM to enable students taking the SAT's on this date to also be at this critically important full-group rehearsal.

Another busy week coming-up, so thank you for staying on top of things schedule-wise.  The light at the end of the field show tunnel is growing brighter (November 10th in Auburn) and we are on-schedule to be ready for our final best performance at the right time.  Stay healthy, work hard, and let's see how we'll look and sound at this Friday's performance.  Let's have a terrific week together.
