The US Bands Marching Competition will be held this Saturday, October 4, 2014 at New Braunfels High School located at 2551 Loop 337 New Braunfels, TX 78130. Call time is 2:00 p.m., and the band will perform at 5:45. Tickets are $14.00
We will be returning to school shortly after our performance. The kids will be given snacks, but not a full meal. Please make sure they eat a healthy (maybe later) lunch before coming to school.
Please keep in mind that with any band event, the students MUST travel on the bus to and from the even. If there is a reason the parents need to pick students up, they and the student MUST physically approach and speak to a band director (preferably Mr. Russell). Chaperones and pit crew are not allowed to release the kids to anyone under any circumstances. We face a huge liability and safety risk if these rules are not followed explicitly.
The Senior/Freshmen pool party will be held on Friday, September 26, 2014 from 5:30 pm - 9 pm.The Hart Ranch subdivision is located off De Zavala, past Wal Mart (opposite of Clark). The street is called Hart Ranch and it's at a traffic light on the left side, just before the curve.
