On Friday, October 25, all OHMS 6th and 8th grade band members will perform at the Austin High vs. Bowie HS football game at Burger Stadium. Students need to arrive at the stadium by 6:30 PM wearing the red mustang band t-shirt with jeans. There is no bus transportation for this game. Students also need to bring their instrument, lyre, and flip folder with pep music. This event is required for all band students in 6th and 8th grade. 7th graders are welcome to join us for extra credit. Students are free to leave after watching the half time show. We hope you can join us for an exciting evening of music, fun, and high school football.
Please let us know if you have any questions for concerns. Thanks for your support!
We will place an order for the long sleeved black shirt - the cost of the shirt is $16 if we place a group order - or $19 if you order it on your own. We are trying to avoid having to pay a expedited shipping charge so all orders must be received by Friday 9/20. If you need to make payment arrangements please email your director. We will measure students during block day this week to be sure we order the correct size.
This Friday September 20th the O.Henry Pep Band will get our Round-Up started at 3:30 - Students should wear their band T-shirt to school so they are ready to Rock!
Parents joins us around the flag pole as we celebrate another year of success.
Students will be allowed to change after their performance - students should tag their instrument cases and their backpacks during ACES to store them in the library once we are finished. The band hall will be closed soon after our performance - students can pick up their instruments at the end of the event.
From the Directors!
Keep those good practice routines going!
