THE GERMANTOWN HIGH SCHOOL BAND
Week of October 2nd
A Legendary start to the competitive season! Congratulations to the Germantown Band- winning all captions and Grand Champion at the Titan Invitational this Saturday.
Special thank you to the boosters and parent volunteers for their help and support to make our first contest on the road a success! Thank you to our wonderful band family!
This week we enter into our final month/phase of marching season.
With competition season now in full swing, on-time attendance at ALL rehearsals is paramount to the success of our band for our push towards State Championships and Bands of America Super Regionals.
Parents, thank you for your continued support in helping to ensure students' prompt and consistent attendance at all rehearsals. The band staff appreciates your help!
THIS WEEK (Week of October 2nd)
See reminder/calendar about fall break below
REMINDER ABOUT BAND CALENDAR DURING FALL BREAK- PLEASE READ!
THESE REQUIRED AND GRADED REHEARSALS WERE APPROVED BY GHS ADMINISTRATION BACK IN SPRING OF 2023 AND ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL MEMBERS.
For context... we are not the only organization that will have to rehearse during this break. Being our busiest time of year, and our state championships are the next week we will have to rehearse some over this break. It is required. Football and other fall sports are doing the same. We realize this is a different district holiday than past years, but our commitment to our activitie's schedule around the state and country has not changed. Until the state/MHSAA adopts a universal calendar for all fall sports and activities that accounts for school districts' modified calendars, this is our only/best recourse. We appreciate all parents and students adherence to these required events on the calendar that were scheduled, explained/communicated to parents and approved by administration as soon as the official calendar was released in January.
WELCOME TO BANDTOBER!

Calendar Change Reminders Below Please Read!
(These announcements have been made previously, this is just a reminder)
The Tupelo game originally scheduled for October 13th, has been moved to THURSDAY, October 12th. This obviously has implications for everyone and the rehearsals we had planned for that week. Those rehearsals were and still are extremely important due to their proximity to our state championships.
So, the following changes will be made to the calendar:
Thursday, October 12th: Rehearsal 9a to 11:30a; Pep Band 2 to Tupelo (leaving at 2:30pm)
Friday, October 13th: Rehearsal 5 to 9p
We hope everyone has a great week!
