2012-13 Marching Band Announcements Updated

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

I sincerely hope everyone is safe and warm at their homes, with power restored.  As announced via the Reverse 911 call, we will be having a half-day of school tomorrow, November 5.  The BHS Marching Band will rehearse tomorrow from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.  This will allow time to eat lunch after classes, yet still go Trick or Treating (if you are inclined to do such) before dark.  Do not wear your costume to school tomorrow.  Mr. Fasano will permit costumes to be worn, if desired, this Friday.

 

Please dress warmly, as the weather will be sunny but cold, and we will be outside reviewing and rehearsing the show.  You may bring a bag lunch or go out for food, but rehearsal will start promptly at 1:30 in the attendance block with instruments and drill sheets.  No food will be available for purchase in school.

 

Information regarding the updated schedule for this weekend will be announced at rehearsal.

 

Also, please note that the cheesecake delivery will be held on Monday, November 12.  This will hopefully allow for everyone to have a week to get organized at home prior to the arrival of the fundraiser.
