Newsletter 8/18/16

Rehearsals and Performances:

  • Friday, August 19, is our first football game (v’s Noblesville).  This game will take place at LN. We will rehearse at LC as normal then head over to LN to act as a pep band in the stands.
    • We will not be performing the half time show at this game.
    • Students will wear their parade uniform consisting of the blue Pride to Pasadena shirt and khaki shorts (color guard wear black shorts).
    • All pit percussion and color guard will attend the game.

  • For the remainder of the season, MPLT students staying after school on Thursdays will be required to take part in study tables from 4:00pm – 5:30pm.  These will be monitored by staff and the expectation will be that students use the time wisely.
    • Students will be excused to eat dinner if it is brought to them.
    • Students will not be allowed to eat in rehearsal rooms.  Food can be consumed outside or in the hallways, and students are expected to clean up after themselves.

    • Rehearsal will always begin promptly at 6:30pm.
