Final Week!!

Dear MB Family,

We are in our last precious moments of the season and gearing up for the show of our lives on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy! Thanks to all for a wonderful show of support from the community this past Saturday at our performance! What a great event! The staff and I are excited about the work the students continue to do and the final push to the end of our journey together!
Just a couple of quick reminders:
  • Please be reminded that Marching Band at HC is an advanced credit class that serves as an elective credit toward student GPAs and graduation requirements.
  • ALL work must be completed for this Marching Band course by the end of the day this Thursday, October 24th as the course ends this weekend. There are a number of students who still owe one or more of the 4 Performance Checks that were due over the course of the season and there is still a list of students who owe makeup assignments for missed rehearsal time. In order to receive credit and to be eligible to march on Friday in Indy, make up assignments for missed rehearsals MUST be submitted by the end of the day this Thursday, Oct. 24th. This is crucial to the success of the group overall. Students missing from the performance on field will negatively impact the group overall so please take care of your responsibilities. Parents, please check in with your students on their academic progress toward this course. Thank you!
  • I have attached the itinerary again for the events taking place this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Please review all details and prepare for a busy, but rewarding weekend!
