Band Classes

Students who do not get their permission slip in for the December 12, 2014 rehearsal at the high school will not get to play in the concert and will need to leave band at the end of the nine week.

Combined Band Rehearsal is Friday Dec. 12, 2014

6th grade students will be with me during 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  They must get their missed work, do it and turn it in.

7th and 8th graders will be with me during 5th, 6th and 7th hours.  They must get their missed work, do it and turn it in.

It is extremely important that students show respect to their teachers and the discipline that they teach by getting this work turned in completed.

This following information was sent out in November:


The high school band is sponsoring a Fazoli’s Spaghetti dinner on Sunday Dec. 14 before the concert.  Buy your 8.00 adult ticket or 5.00 child’s ticket now and eat with us before the concert.  Tickets need to be purchased if possible by Dec. 9

Spaghetti with either meat sauce, marinara sauce or fettuccine sauce (your choice)

Side Salad

Bread sticks

Homemade desert

Lemonade, water or tea

They start serving at the high school cafeteria at 11:30AM and finish at 1:30.

Please make your reservations by sending a check for your dinner made out to HCHS or send cash.  Your child can give Mrs. Lucky the money and order of how many meals.  She will give that to Mr. Merz and order your meal.  Students warm up at 1:00 and 1:15.  I would make sure they were eating by 12:15 or 12:30.  Tickets will be at the door of the cafeteria when you arrive.  This fundraiser will help the high school band pay for travel and yearly expenses.  A good meal and a great way to help.


Please consult the blog for any questions on arrival times and what to wear.  Call Mrs. Lucky if needed.  Everybody needs to be at the concert ready to perform!!!!
