8th Grade Night Next Week

Dear Parents, 

One week from today (September 20), the 8th grade band will be having our first performance of the year. Ms. Bray and I CAN’T WAIT for this performance.  On that night, there will be over 250 Karns Band students in the stands, playing some incredible music and having a great time.  Here are the details:

Call Time:  6:00 PM at the KHS band room.  The band room is the first set of double doors on the right as you drive into the school grounds.  The doors will be decorated with a “Music” wrapping.  Your child will need to check in with either Ms Bray or me when they arrive.

Attire:  Blue shirt, shorts, and sneakers.  All clothing must meet KMS dress code.

Materials Needed:  Instrument and flip folder.  I will be taking the snare drums, tubas, baritones, and mellophones to the game.  Students who play those instruments need to take their mouthpiece and music home with them after school on Friday.  ALL OTHER INSTRUMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS TO THE GAME.

Food:  Students should bring money for the concession stand.  All students will be given the 3rd quarter off in order to eat and socialize.  

After the game:  The KMS Band students will move to the center of the stands and watch the KHS Band perform their 2019 show, “The Signal”.  Once that is complete, we will party-parade back to the band room.

Schedule (Students are required to stay for the entire game and after-game show):

Call Time:  6:00 PM

Warmup:  6:30 PM (No parents, please)

March to Stadium:  6:45 PM (KMS Band students are admitted for free)

Kickoff:  7:30 PM

Halftime:  Exact time is uncertain.  However, all 8th grade Band students will join the KHS Band on the field for the halftime show.

Game and Performance ends:  10:30 PM (Approximately)

Pick up:  10:45 at the band room

Parents are encouraged to attend the game.  Admission is $8.00 and tickets are available at the stadium gate.  You won’t want to miss this performance!  

We look forward to seeing you all next week!
