Week 1 ... Marching Band Season !!!!

Welcome (Back)!!!!!
I just wanted to let everyone know what to expect this 1st week of BHS Marching Band Season!!!
IMPORTANT NOTE: All rehearsals and performances are MANDATORY so be sure your bandie has already spoken with Mr. Lovell or me regarding any conflicts for the season (Sept - Nov).
1. Full Rehearsals ... Tuesday & Thursday ... 2:15 - 3:15. Sectional Rehearsals (Dance/Guard/Percussion) ... Guard = Tues/Thurs 3:30-3:30, Dance = Tues/Thurs 3:15-4:15, Percussion = Tues 3:15-4:15 & Fri 2:15-3:15.  This year's sectional schedules vary section to section so confirm with adviser and/or captains. Bandies need to arrange pickup ... no bus transport at end of rehearsal times.
3. Get those black shoes AND black socks ready for Friday night!!!! (National Music in Woburn Center has the official "marching shoe" but any low comfortable all black rubber soled shoe will work. Also, (winds and percussion) black socks ... CREW height ... No ankle or lower allowed!!
4. Speaking of FEET ... Band (2nd period) will be outside all season so have a change of shoes in band locker if you don't want shoes to get wet from grass during the mornings (marching in heels on grass is a tough one too)!!!
5. Sign up for snack items for any of the football games scheduled for the season ... click on .... You will receive email reminders so feel free to sign up now for the entire season.
6. Friday, September 5 ... at Burlington's Varsity Field ... lineup to march down to the field is at 6:25 pm so all bandies be at the Music Dept no later than 5:45. Parents, the game starts at 7:00 but come early to see the marching band perform pre-game (around 6:45).
Any questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks so much and see YOU under the lights this Friday night!!!
