New Director Introduction and Revised Marching Band Rehearsal Schedule

posted Aug 16, 2017, 12:52 PM by Jenna Eggering



Leilehua High School Band

 

Dear Band Parents,

 

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you all; my name is Jenna Eggering and I have been hired as the new Band Director at Leilehua High School. As you can imagine, it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks for me, getting to know your students, the school, and the program itself. I have had wonderful help from the Band Boosters, Mr. Roque and Mr. Matsuda in assisting with the marching band, and the band leadership students. They all have answered many of my questions--some several times over--and have been wonderful in working with me to help me learn the ins and outs of the Leilehua Band program.

 

A little about my background: I graduated the University of Hawai’i in 2008, taught band and choir at Waimea High on Kaua’i, subbed in the DOE, assisted various smaller music programs, and the last two years I have been teaching at Kapolei High where I assisted with the marching and concert bands after school. I am thrilled for this opportunity to work with your students both on and off the field. This year is going to be an exciting one for us all!

 

Going forward, I wanted to make you all aware of some rehearsal time changes for marching band--some are only slight. After reviewing the current schedule I wanted to make some adjustments to let your student(s) have more time for homework, family, friends, rest, and proper conditioning for when they are in head-to-toe uniforms, with their adrenaline rushing, and giving their all at tournaments. I consulted with the staff and leadership before making this move and many feel it is a positive change. Many of our students are in AP classes with a large homework load or can’t stay at school as late on both Friday or Saturday nights, etc. I believe firmly in balance for teenagers, and this new schedule allows us the same rehearsal hours, 10, just spread over differently during the week. The idea of “Work Hard, Play Hard” can be achieved with efficient rehearsals, hardwork, and dedication. This schedule should also allow for a more consistent rehearsal schedule for everyone to plan around.

 

Monday: 5-8pm (30 min earlier)

Wednesday: 5-8pm (30 min earlier)

Friday: 3-4 (If a football game night--only 4 left as of 8/15--section leaders will call a sectional earlier in the week and inform their section with enough notice)

Saturday: 10-1 (No practice if football game that night, and only 2 left as of 8/15)

 

I appreciate everyone’s support for this revised schedule as it serves in the best interest of the students achieving balance during their busy high school careers. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email me back at jeggering@mules.k12.hi.us. Email is always the quickest and easiest way to get a hold of me and if you would like me to call you, feel free to add your phone number and I would be happy to! I look forward to meeting you all over the course of the year!

 

Please sign and return the attached form acknowledging receipt of this letter and the new rehearsal schedule beginning the week of 8/21/17.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jenna Eggering

Important Announcement!

Aloha Band ‘Ohana,

 

I want to thank everyone that has helped to make Leilehua one of the finest bands in the state! We all have worked together to build a strong, vibrant and successful band program. Each of us dedicated countless hours doing what was necessary to provide the best learning opportunities for the students.

 

With a heavy heart, I wanted to let you know that I will not be returning to Leilehua next school year. I have accepted a position at Kamehameha Middle School on the Big Island. After weighing all the factors, my wife and I decided it was the best decision for our family.

 

The hardest part for me, is leaving the best band ever! Please help me by supporting your child during this difficult time.

 

Again, I want to thank everyone for the love and support you have shown me and my family throughout the years and wish you the very best in the future.



                                    Sincerely,



                                    Alan Kinoshita

Aloha Parents and Students,

As the school year draws to an end.  I wanted to take this time on behalf of the LHS Band Boosters, to thank each and every one of you for making it a successfully memorable one.  We couldn't have done it without your help.  


We hope you all take the time during the summer to refresh and recharge!  In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, much is already underway to set the stage for another exciting event filled year for our band program.  To kick everything off, LHS band leadership students will be holding their annual leadership camp, where planning and organizations begins for everything from selecting new officers/committees to the marching band performances.


To help defray the cost of the camp, we are seeking donations from family and community organizations.  The following is a list of items on our wish list.  Please drop off to Aladdin at the band room no later than Friday, May 26th if you are able to help us by donating.



Thank you very much!
