November 27th Updated Band Information

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Even though marching band is a distant memory, We are still moving at a fast pace. Here’s a few items to be aware of:

TUXEDOS AND DRESSES — I’m still trying to get information on the delivery for these. If you ordered a tux or dress, it would be wise to have a backup plan just in case these do not arrive before the concert on Friday, December 8th.

CONCERT BAND REHEARSALS — These are scheduled for Monday, November 27th (TODAY) and Monday, December 4th. Both rehearsals are from 3:00 to 5:00PM. Please pick up your children promptly at 5:00.

DRUMLINE AT CROSSPOINT CHURCH — Most of you are probably not aware but the PCHS Drumline will be performing with the choir and orchestra from Crosspoint Church in Argo, Alabama on Sunday, December 3rd at 8:30AM and 10:00AM.

POINSETTIAS — These are scheduled to be here on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7th. Yes, this is the same day as the Concert Band concert. Please make arrangements to pick them up after school.

BAND PICTURES — Many of you have been asking about individual pictures. We will have these on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14th starting at 3:00. Yes, this is the same day as the parade. These pictures will also be part of the composite that will hang on the wall in the Band hall.

CHRISTMAS PARADE — The Pell City Christmas Parade will be on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14th at 7:00PM. Students should be in the Band Hall by 5:30 PM. I’m assuming the parade route is the same this year.

We do not need students walking back to the Band Hall. Marching Band will wear uniforms and Santa hats. Auxiliaries — please check with your sponsor to see what you are wearing.
