Friday Morning Rehearsal/Drill Team Information
As a reminder on game days, we will rehearse in the STADIUM. The Eaglettes will also join us on this day. This is especially important to note because ALL woodwinds, brass and drumline students must remember to bring their flip folder stuffed with this week’s drill team tune (which happens to be We Got The Beat again).

Richardson vs Samuell (Away)


The second football game of the year is this Friday, September 7th and its an AWAY game again! As always, full details can be found on the Official Band Calendar at

When the bell rings to release school, dinner will be served in the Eagles Nest. Please note that this is only for those who signed up for the Football Game Meal Plan. It will be a fast turn around, so you must move quickly! The schedule for the night is below. Please note that we’ll be wearing the Summer Uniform again this week.

Inspection Lines

Call time for students to meet in inspection lines is 5:00 PM (Band Hall). If a student fails inspection, the student will report to Mr. Marquez after the football game and will be assigned duties for the band during that time. Please refer to last week’s TWIGEB on how a student could fail inspection.

We should be returning around 11:15 PM (estimate). I will send out a message through Twitter announcing that we are on our way home. This will also show up on the GEB website Twitter feed.

Upon return, everyone will turn in their shoes and place them in the shoe rack outside of the uniform room.

Parents – we will NEED many volunteers for the football game. Mrs. Forssell will be sending out information so be on the look out and sign-up!
