Open Band Room on Mon. 6/30 Cancelled

Dear Band Family,  We have to cancel open band room tomorrow Mon. June 30th. The band room has been cleared out and the floor stripped but not waxed. I think they may wax and seal the floor tomorrow in which case no one would be allowed on it for at least 24 hours. Sorry for the inconvenience. We will try again next Mon. July 7 for those interested.

Hope all are having a great summer! MB students, please be preparing for camp in a few weeks :-)

For anyone interested, DOJO plays at Comedy Off Broadway tomorrow night with BAJA opening at 7 PM!

Sincerely,  Bill Kite  Director of Bands  Henry Clay High School

Band Council/Leadership Challenge Course Info

Dear HC Band Council and Leadership,  Click link below for info regarding the June 27th Challenge course at Asbury University. I have attached their medical and release form to this email. Each student and their parent will need to fill it out and bring it with them on the day of the program.

ChallengeCourseWaiver

Also, I will meet you on campus the morning of June 27th and take you all up to the board room where the students will have their morning leadership session with Paul Stephens, Associate Dean of Student Leadership Development. At Noon we will then head over to course. We will have lunch there, do our low ropes program, and will conclude the day at 4pm.

As far as getting to campus goes, the address for the University is:
1 Macklem Dr.
Wilmore, KY 40390

You will come into Wilmore on US 29 (which is off of US 68, Harrodsburg Rd.). US 29 runs directly in front of the University, which will be on your right. As soon as you pass through the 1st 4-way stop light in Wilmore (there are only 2 in the whole town), the University will be on your right. Your first right after that stop light will be a turn onto a Semi-Circle on the University’s campus. Have the bus pull in there and I will be standing out there looking for you. If you need anything that morning (directions, lost, etc.), just give me a call on my cell phone at 859-779-0786. I have attached a map to this email that may also help get you to the University.

Henry Clay Band Family, If you requested a 2013-2014 Henry Clay Concert Music CD, it should be in the band room either with Mr. Bayerle or in a bag on the Band Booster Box.  Please have your student pick the CD up before the end of Friday for easiest delivery.

If you haven’t asked for one yet but would still like to have one, let me know at william.smith@uky.edu.

Departing Students: Turn in Concert wear!

Students listed below have not turned in their concert wear as of 12:00 pm today (6/3/2014).  If we do not receive your child’s concert wear by the last day of school, you will be sent an invoice for $72 for dresses and $119 for tuxes.  You can get them dry cleaned at Bluegrass Cleaners on Squires Rd (@ Richmond Road) for $10 per tux or $3.50 per dress if you mention HC Band.

I do have 4 tuxes and one dress that have been turned in without a name on them.  I have no way of telling who they belong to, so if your child already turned in their concert wear, please tell them to look and see if theirs is still hanging up and to please put their name on it.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  I have heard from a few parents that the concert wear is “on its way”, but there are several I have NOT heard from.

Here is the list of students who still need to turn in concert wear:  Hunter Adams, Raegan Asher, Cory Baker, David Bozarth, Jordan Carter, Logan Cooper, Lili Cruz-Hernandez, Bridgette Gibbs, Brandon Hardy, Nick Jones, Matt Kelly, Kevin LaZur, Simon Long, Devon Love, Eric Martin, Connor O’Nan, Ibrahim Pandzic, Tessa Parrish, Moe Patten, Zachary Quintana, Abby Raines, Dane Ritter, Hannah Sallee, Olivia Seale, Jordan Strange, Matthew Van Hauter, Valerie Varble, Arran Walker, Erica Wheeler, Mylon White
