Announcements:

  • Happy Mother's Day to all of our great band moms out there!  You guys are doing a terrific job raising some fine young men and woman!  Enjoy your day!
  • CONGRATULATIONS to the class of 2019!  We are proud of you and wish you nothing but success in the future!
  • Thanks to everyone who helped cheer on the band Friday at the Strawberry Festival in Humboldt!  It was great to have so many supporters lining the streets of Humboldt for our performance.
  • Thanks to all those who made the band banquet possible this past Friday night!  What a wonderful night to recognize our wonderful students and look back at the GREAT year that we have had and a time to look forward to the upcoming school year!  For those of you who missed the show trailer for next fall's show it has been placed along with the theme shirt design on the website at https://sites.google.com/site/gchsmarchingpioneers/field-show-2008-info.
  • Seniors need to make sure if they have any equipment (instruments, mouthpieces, etc.) that belong to the band that they get it back to the band room this week BEFORE graduation on Friday.  We will take inventory on Friday during class.  If it is not returned by Friday there will be a hold placed on their diploma until the equipment has been returned.  Same goes for anything that they have in the band room...they MUST get this out by Friday or it was discarded.  This could include practice/marching shoes, socks, gloves, clothes, etc.
  • Any graduating seniors/parents or students not participating in the Fall 2019 band/parents will be removed from the email list at some point this week unless you email Ms. Sharon and specifically ask to remain on the list.  
  • If you want to leave the "Remind" group you can do so by following the instructions found here:  https://help.remind.com/hc/en-us/articles/202540968-How-do-I-opt-out-of-receiving-messages-
  • All debts MUST be paid this week before any students will be allowed to graduate or attend the first June rehearsal!
  • We will start playing through the show music this week and working on graduation music.  Students will need both concert and marching instruments at school this week.
  • TOMORROW NIGHT will be the band's freshmen orientation @ 6:30 in the band room!  All student leaders who were announced for the fall are REQUIRED to attend!  They need to be there at 6 to help welcome the incoming freshmen and their families to Gibson County HS.  We will need some parents to help preparing/serving the food and also parents available to answer questions and make them feel welcome as well.  Please contact Jennifer Lowrance if you are willing to help.
  • Graduation is THIS FRIDAY NIGHT @ 6:00 pm in the main gym!  All non-graduating concert band members are REQUIRED to play for graduation.  All students need to be in their seats on the gym floor at 5:15 dressed in concert attire!  All equipment will have to be moved back to the band room before students will be dismissed to leave.
