Hello Pep band parents!
Below is information on the Band Jamboree which is next Tuesday and our Bowie Band night which is next Friday. Information will be handed out to your child either today or tomorrow. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!!!
Band Jamboree Info:
Tuesday, September 17th, Austin ISD will present the 45th Annual Marching Band Jamboree. This show features all of the AISD high school marching bands, and a special presentation by the University of Texas Longhorn Band. Our fine arts director, Greg Goodman, has asked all middle school bands to attend and show support for the high schools bands (we will not play our instruments at this event). The Jamboree will take place at Burger Center, but Bailey students will take a bus to and from Bailey. The bus will leave Bailey at 5:30pm and return between 10:00-10:30pm (please allow your child to carry a cell phone to communicate with you in case of a late/early return). Parents are welcome to attend this event; tickets are $3.00 at the gate (the students are free). Students are welcome to stay in the band hall after school and do homework (they’ll need to bring a sack dinner and their uniform) or they may go home and come back by 5:15pm. Students will wear their blue pep band t-shirt, black slacks, black shoes, black socks. They may also bring a jacket or sweater. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding the Jamboree.
Bowie Band Night Info:
Dear Bailey Band Parents:
The Bailey Pep Band has been invited to the Bowie High School football game on Friday, September 20th, as guests of the Bowie Bulldawg Band.
Bailey students must be in full uniform (Blue Pep Band shirt, black slacks, black socks, solid black dress shoes) with instrument, lyre, and flip-folder with all pep band music. We will play a few pieces in the stands with the Bowie Band.
The game is at Burger Stadium on Highway 290 (just behind Kohls in Sunset Valley). Students need to arrive at Burger Stadium at 6:00 p.m., where they will meet with the Bowie Band in the northwest parking lot (where the Bowie Band rehearses — nearest Hwy 290/Westgate). There is no bus provided for this event. The Bailey Band will march in to the stadium with the Bowie Band at 6:30 pm. Late arrivals will be unable to join us after we march in, so please be early! The game starts at 7:30 p.m., and you may pick your child up after halftime (approximately 8:45pm). Your child may want to call you on their cell phone when halftime is almost over so you’re not waiting long. We suggest you pick up your child on the South side of the stadium, just under the press box (the opposite side where they were dropped off). This area is well lit, and a Bailey Band Director will be waiting with your child.
This “Middle School Band Night” is such an exciting evening, parents are welcome to attend. (However, you’ll need to pay admission). Please call us if there are any questions (841-3808 — Band Office). This event is required in order to maintain membership in the pep band at future events.
***Immediately following “Middle School Band Night”, the Bailey students are invited to join us at Gatti Town for a Bailey Band party, which will be held from 10:30 pm until 1:00 am. Please see the separate flyer regarding this event for specific details. (Gatti Town is an optional event)
Friday night September 20th will be an exciting night for us! See you there!
Dear Wind Ensemble Parents:
Wind Ensemble students need to have their formal uniform by early November. Men’s Warehouse in Sunset Valley has been very kind to agree to measure, order, and hem tuxedo pants and tuxedo shirts for a very low price. From September 1st-20th, they are set up to measure your child for their tuxedo pants and tuxedo shirts. They have kid sizes available as well so the clothes fit properly. They have some available for that day to purchase and if they run out of a size, they will place an order free of charge. Pants can also be hemmed free of charge and the order is tax free as well! Only the Men’s Warehouse in Sunset Valley is prepared for our orders, so please only go there.
Men’s Warehouse Tuxedo Shirt: $19.99
Sunset Valley Tuxedo Pants: $24.99
