10/22/21 Weekly Wrap-Up

From Mr Ketterer:

Good Morning!

This week has been a productive week! We were able to fine tune our performance for movements 1, 2, 3 and 4 of our field show. We are very excited to compete tomorrow at the Dartmouth show, and even more excited to be able to perform the complete “Through Space and Time” show! Just a reminder that students should report to the school tomorrow (10/23) at 10:00 for rehearsal prior to loading the truck for the competition.

Just a friendly reminder, if you plan on volunteering for competitions or school events you must have a CORI completed. The CORI form can be found on the district website as well as on the MBPA website. Please try to get this done as soon as you can. That way you are covered for the entire school year and can volunteer and help whenever you are able.

MBPA is still short FIVE volunteers for this Sunday’s game against the Jets. Call time is 8:30, and should be done by 5 p.m. They can also take another three students to pour hot chocolate. Students must be 16 years old, per Gillette rules. Here’s a link to the Sign Up Genius:

Monday 10/25: Guard 6:00-9

Tuesday 10/26: Winds/Battery/Pit 6:00-9

Thursday 10/28: ALL 6:00-9

Sunday 10/31: NESBA Finals (please see attached schedule)

Important: With 10/31 being NESBA Finals, we will NOT be having marching band practice continue as previously scheduled. We will be having practice on an as needed basis for home football games (and Thanksgiving), and information will be sent home to parents and students well in advance. With football playoffs up in the air, we do not know when the next home game will be. You will be updated once more information is provided. Updates on schedules for Winter Percussion and Winter Guard will be sent out soon. Michael Lombo will be communicating about winter guard, and I will be communicating about winter percussion.

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank You,

Mr. Ketterer
