Open House Tonight at 5:30 PM

Dear Band Family,  I wanted to remind everyone about the HCHS Open House this evening at 5:30 PM.  The procedure is slightly different this year.  Parents will not follow your student’s schedule as in years past.  It is truly “open” and parents may travel to any of your child’s classrooms as you wish at anytime between 5:30 and 7:30 PM.  The change is due to construction and parking issues, etc.

Mr. Bayerle and I will be in the band room (room 115) and look forward to seeing you!  Please come visit us tonight!

Thanks for all you do!  Sincerely,  BILL KITE  DIRECTOR OF BANDS  HENRY CLAY HIGH SCHOOL  (859) 381-3441  william.kite@fayette.kyschools.us  www.henryclayband.org  Follow on Twitter @henryclayband

Second Chance: Concert Wear Fitting

Mrs. Mullins and I will be measuring for Concert Wear again next Tuesday, September 9th, as we weren’t able to get to everyone last week.  Returning students, this is your 2nd chance to try on your concert wear to make sure it fits so that we can trade out if you need new pieces. If you don’t take care of it now, and find out in December that something doesn’t fit, I can’t guarantee we will have your size in stock.

If we still don’t get everyone that day, I will return at another date to finish, so if you’re new and haven’t been fitted, don’t panic :)

Let me know if you have any questions that I have not already addressed!

Concert Wear

I hope everyone has had a smooth start to the school year!  It’s time to start measuring for concert wear!

For those who are new to the HC band program, you will be assigned concert wear to wear for performances with the HC band (dress for girls, tuxedo for boys).  I will be measuring students this Thursday (August 28th) during their regular class time.  We have several sizes in stock for students to try on, and after I am able to figure out what we need, I will place an order to cover items we need.  The first concert isn’t until December, but you will likely get your concert wear by October.  Please make every effort to be in class this Thursday :)

For returning students:  PLEASE try on your concert wear before Thursday to see if it still fits.  If it does not, you will need to be measured for replacement pieces (For instance, if your shirt still fits, but the pants don’t, we will only need to replace your pants).  You will need to bring back the pieces that don’t fit, but please make sure they are dry cleaned first (they don’t have to be in before Thursday).  If you turn them in without getting them cleaned, they will be given back to you.

Please do not wait until October or November to try the pieces on, because I may not have the size you need and I won’t be able to order them at that time to arrive on time.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 859-266-0004 (no texting please) or by email at kjar4collins@gmail.com

Thanks,  Kimberly Collins  Uniform and Concert Wear chair

August 24th will be the last day to place orders for show shirts and spirit wear.

Show shirts are provided by the band for all marchers.  Families that want to order show shirts, send me an email with your order.  We do not order extras of the show shirts so this is your last chance.  Shirts are $10 and 2X and above are $12.  Youth is also $10. There is a picture of the show shirt on the website.

Blue fleece will be provided to all new marchers.  If you need a replacement fleece, the cost is $35.  If you want to have embroidery done on the fleece, there is a former parent who will do it for $6.  Parents can order fleece on the spirit wear order form.

Click link below for the form for the spirit wear.  Some of you had asked about visors and we can get them in blue, gold or black.  The cost is $13.00.

You may email me with your orders or catch me after practice next week. If you have not paid for your blue band shirt, please put the money in the band box in the band room with a note saying what it’s for.  Checks are payable to HCBB.
