NEFF JACKET REP: A reminder that Mike Faulkner, the Neff Jacket representative, will be in the Band Room on Tuesday August 18th from 3:30p-5p. If we should have to cancel practice because of weather, Mr. Faulkner will still be there during this time. You can purchase a letterman jacket or, if you already have a jacket, you can purchase patches/bars. Remember, you can only get a "C" letter for your jacket if you have marched for at least one school year. Also, if you already have a jacket, you can order patches or bars to go on it, but Neff will not take the jacket back and sew them on - you will have to get them sewn on yourself. Lastly, if you are ordering a jacket, Mr. Faulkner will let you pay 1/2 of the cost when ordering, with the other 1/2 due in 4-6 weeks when the jackets are delivered. You may get a jacket order form from Mr. Newsome, Mr. Fortner, or HERE.
PRACTICES: Speaking of cancelling practice because of weather, we have had to do it multiple times over the last few weeks. I know you're all as frustrated by that as I am, but I am also committed to everyone's health & safety first, and the GMEA still currently recommends cancelling outdoor practice if there is a strong chance of rain. COVID numbers for Georgia and Cook County are still high, so we are still taking every precaution. If I have to cancel practice because of weather, I am going to make every effort to do that by 1p on practice day so it's not at the last minute and parents can make arrangements.
