Director’s Notes

Hello Band Families!

Thank you to everyone who came to Parent Night in the Classroom and stopped by the band room! It was so nice to meet and see all of the people who help support our incredible students!

On Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00pm, there will be an informational meeting about the upcoming GSO/GBS Jazz Band trip to New York City. If you are interested in finding out more about what the trip will entail, please attend this meeting. There is no obligation to sign up if you do attend. 

Our next home football game is Thursday, September 15th. This is a departure from the typical Friday night game, but we will still be performing. The band will be in full uniform for this game. 

We are considering adding a marching band rehearsal on Friday, September 16th from 5:45-9:00pm. Students, please fill out this google form as soon possible so we can decide whether or not this rehearsal will happen. A decision will be announced no later than this Wednesday. 

Permission slips are available in the band room! Please return this permission slip as soon as possible. Every member of the marching band is required to turn in a permission slip (signed by a parent or guardian), before being allowed to board the bus. The first off-campus event is Saturday, September 17th at Wheeling High School. An itinerary for the day will be made available as soon as our performance time is finalized. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
