HMK Update > Week of 09.24

Post date: Sep 25, 2012 3:21:37 PM

Greetings, all! After a GREAT day on Saturday, we're back at it again this week as we continue to add to the final production of "The Cathedral!" While it is taking some extra time to put such a complex show on the field, the staff (and judging community!) is confident that this is going to be one of the most effective programs on the field this season!

Calendar Adjustment > Wednesday, 10.10 Ensemble Rehearsal 6-9 in Stadium

This is due to a soccer conflict in the stadium. Rehearsal on Thursday, 10.11 will be held after school until 5:30

Calendar Adjustment > Wednesday, 10.24 No Ensemble Rehearsal

There will be no ensemble rehearsal on Wednesday due to the Fall Showcase Concert

Calendar Adjustment > 10.27 USBands @ Cedar Cliff (not Manheim Central) As our seedings at National Championships will depend on our highest score in USBands as of this date, we need to make sure that we have a score so we don't perform first in the show on November 10th!
