Friday Home Football Game for ALL Band Members

Dear Band Family,  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Just wanted to send a friendly reminder to everyone that ALL band students are required to perform in the football pep band this Friday, Oct. 17th.  Call time for all band students is 6:00 PM.

Marching Band members will begin changing into full uniform at 6 while non marchers will be meeting in arcs and ready to warm up at 6:00.  Non Marching band members should wear the Blue Devil Band shirt.  Bring the band fleece or other warm HC attire for the evening.

It is important that everyone understand what is expected, so please see the link below for Pep Band Expectations handout.  Some of the listed items describe basketball pep band, but there is important information about football pep band as well.

HC PEP BAND Behavior Expectations

We are also hosting our first ever HC Band Alumni Night on Friday so it is important that the program is represented well through our playing and our behavior as we welcome band alumni back from throughout the past few decades.

NOTE:  Only band members and parents will be allowed into the school building by the band room on Friday for the game.  We are responsible for those in the building so we will NOT allow visitors, friends, etc. to enter the building by the band room door.

Thanks to all for your work so far this year!  We look forward to a great night on Friday!  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

Peterloo Smart Music Testing Schedule

Dear WE Family,  Please see the below Smart Music Testing Schedule for 4th hour wind ensemble. It is important that each student is preparing and practicing each section of Peterloo Overture on a regular basis. Students may schedule times to use school computers before or after school. Please see me in advance for a time. Please plan ahead to be sure we are not all trying to use the same computers at the same time at the last minute. The other option is to record at home for those who have or wish to purchase Smart Music subscriptions.

Thanks to all for your effort and work!  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

Pep Band Info for Everyone

Dear Band Family,  I wanted to communicate some information about Pep Band to everyone.

All HC band students participate in pep band both for football and basketball, however, 2 of the 4 regular season football games this year will be marching band only games due to some logistical reasons.  Next Thursday, Oct. 2nd (Homecoming) will be a marching band only game.  Non Marchers would only need to be at the games on Friday October 17th and Friday October 24th unless our team hosts home playoff games, then those would be added as the playoff schedule is determined.

As far as basketball goes, we won’t know the schedule until late February when they draw for the district tournament and then it is based upon whether the boys/girls basketball teams win or not.  We usually do rotating basketball pep bands so students do not play every tournament game.

I hope this helps some!  Thanks for your support and effort this year!  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

Spirit Wear – Marchers & Non-Marchers

I will be placing one last order for spirit wear on October 3rd.  If there is something you would still like to order, please email me.  I have extras of some things, but we can order something that I don’t have. However, I don’t have any show shirts left and we will not be ordering more of those.

The visors are finally in and I will them after practices.  We can also order backpacks if anyone is interested.  Mr. Bayerle has one and they are very nice.  They are black Adidas with small white trim.  It will have the logo and your name on the front.  They are $45.  I’m sure Mr. Bayerle will be glad to model his for you.

With the holidays just around the corner, these make great gifts.

Go Blue Band!!!!  Kristie Spencer  kspencer4460@gmail.com
