Welcome to the last week of August 2017!
This week is basically business as usual for the Tiger Band. We have regular rehearsal on Thursday night from
6:30 - 9 (Percussion 6 - 9) and a home game on Friday night. Doors for Friday will be at 5:30.
Music testing this week is Tiger Rag Extension and then Band Director's Choice on the remaining band cheers (Scare Tactics, Apache, Happy, Bang Bang, Hey Baby, Hey Song, Band Cheer #2 & #4). Juniors and Seniors need to test by Tuesday in order to get full credit and Freshmen and Sophomores need to test by Thursday. Students are responsible for testing their music on time and communicating with their assigned director if they have any questions or testing issues.
Looking forward to another great week with the Tiger Band!
