Weekly Update from Mr. Dailey - October 3, 2022

Hello Band Families!


Thank you so much for your flexibility and patience this weekend at the Big Cat Marching Festival! I am so proud of our students for the way they performed and how hard they’ve worked to present a full show in competition. They grew from prelims to finals and ended up moving up a spot in the rankings because of their focus even though the field was much more wet and they had a long day. That show to show growth is all I can ask for and I’m thrilled with the way this season is progressing!


Without a football game, this week is a little less hectic, so we just have rehearsal on Tuesday as far as the marching band goes. The Jazz Bands will be featured at their concert this Thursday at 7 pm in the HHS auditorium, so please consider checking that out for a fun night of music and to celebrate their hard work this first quarter!
