This week in Band

March 8-15, 2020

Tuesday 3/10/20 - Winter Guard Practice 5:15pm-8:30pm, 5:30-8:00: Band Portrait Viewing 6:00pm-7:30pm: Curriculum Night for new Osceola students and families. STUDENTS, as we did for Discovery Night, we need some volunteers to talk with students and families about our program during this time.

Thursday 3/12/20 - Winter Guard Practice 5:15pm - 8:30pm

Friday 3/13: LAST DAY FOR STUDENTS TO BRING HOME THEIR MARCHING UNIFORMS AND SHAKOS (for the Pow Wow Parade). Students will need Black shoes they can march in and black crew socks. They can bring their uniforms home earlier than Friday, but they need to REMEMBER TO WEAR THEM ON SATURDAY to the parade and to bring their black garment bags and shako boxes with them.

Saturday 3/14: SEMINOLE POW WOW PARADE. Students, please arrive NO LATER than 9am in FULL UNIFORM AT Johnson Blvd. across from the city bus stop (back side of Studio Movie Grill). Map is attached. We will be carpooling parents who want to walk the parade so they can leave their cars at SPC.

Students will need to be picked up from the Seminole Campus of St. Pete College around 11:00am. We step off at 10:00am, I am not sure what number we are, so please be flexible with the time. We don't want to have students having to wait for rides after the parade is over, so please try to be there by 11:15. I realize the traffic is tricky to get in there during the parade, so you may need to get there early before they cut off traffic. If you come from 102nd Avenue, and make a right turn into the library entrance, you should be able to get in.

REMINDER, Marching Band Leadership Team (those not in Winter Guard) is needed to help unload the trailer after the parade and we will need to do this quickly as Mr. Edwards needs to get to Durant with the students for their Winter Guard Competition. Any parents that can help, we would appreciate it!

Here is the signup for the Parade if you want to walk it with us: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080D49A4AB2DA02-20204


Students marching in the parade will need to depart directly from SPC with their drivers. If you are Marching with the band but are in Winter Guard, please REMEMBER YOUR WINTER GUARD UNIFORM. You will need to arrive in your Marching Uniform, not your Winter Guard uniform.

3/16-3/23: HAPPY SPRING BREAK! No School or Rehearsal for students.



4/28: SPRING CONCERT (Guard students are expected to come to support the band during this performance)

5/14: BAND BANQUET - HOLIDAY INN, HARBORSIDE 6-9pm. Tickets are $25 each, Seniors tickets are complimentary. Any families that have credits on their accounts may use the credits to purchase their tickets for themselves and their families.
