There is no after party this week since it’s an away game. We will send out a message on Twitter (viewable at richardsonband.org) when we arrive back at school. All students must be picked up within 30 minutes.

End of 2nd Six Weeks

The end of the 2nd Six Weeks is coming up tomorrow! Just as with the 1st Six Weeks, students can lose/re-gain their eligibility with their grades. Any student who fails a non-exempt class when the grading period ends tomorrow will be academically ineligible starting next Thursday, November 13th. This will affect 9th Grade All Region amongst other events. Please make every effort to pass your classes!

Playoffs

We won’t know for sure until after Friday’s game, but currently we are in a three way tie for a playoffs spot. This means that there is a very good chance that we will have a playoff game next week! We will send out an email one way of the other as soon as we know whether or not playoffs are happening for us.

Playoff games can often take place on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays. If we advance to playoffs, we won’t know the details of our game until next Monday.

West Band Blast

This coming Monday, the 10th is the West Beginner Band Blast in the RHS Band Hall.  This is a cool event where all of the West Junior High beginners come and play along with the West JH Symphonic Band.  As a surprise, at the end of the concert the RHS Golden Eagle Band will march in and play with the beginners and the West JH Symphonic Band. This event is required for drum majors, wind section leaders and battery and we would also like to invite all West Junior High alumni to participate as well.

We need to arrive at 6:30pm to pick up our instruments and then we will wait quietly in the Orchestra Room.  The beginners arrive at 6:50pm and the event begins at 7:00pm.  The beginners play a couple things.  Then the Symphonic Band plays a couple things.  Then they play Crunch Time together.  That’s when we surprise them marching in to the cadences.  We’ll play a couple quick things, then we’ll play Crunch Time as a mass group.

The event will last until 8:00pm.  Please wear your When You Wish shirt.

Remember band, this is the sort of event that makes a huge impact on the beginners.  They will be high schoolers someday following in your footsteps and some of them will probably even say, “Hey, you remember that time when we played at the high school in 6th grade and the high school band surprised us?  That was really cool!”
