FCMB Information , Week of August 10th

A Message from Mr. Poremba

Hello Band Families!

As we enter week 3 of our pre season marching band rehearsals I wanted to update everyone on our schedule over the coming weeks. The week of August 17th, we will be rehearsing from 8:30am - 11:30am on Monday 8/17, Wednesday 8/19, and Friday 8/21. ALL BAND MEMBERS ARE TO REPORT DURING THESE TIMES. We will continue to have the band broken up into small sectionals and larger groups however we are still limited to 50 students in an area. In addition, we will be rehearsing on Tuesday 8/25 and Thursday 8/27 from 5:30 - 7:30pm. This will be a FULL BAND rehearsal.

We are going to be sending out a form as well to purchase a band polo which we will be using for our performances this season. There will be some other spirit wear items available as well for purchase, but all students will need the polo shirt. Returning marchers are fine to use the polo that they have.

FCMB Polo Form - mandatory for marchers

I know there are many questions still regarding what band will look like for our in person and our remote students once school starts. We will be working with our administration on a plan for this. We will communicate this with everyone once something is finalized.

Overall we are very pleased with the work that the kids have been doing over the past few weeks. It has been so great to see them back interacting safely with each other and doing band!

Thanks for your continued support of our band program!

Mr. Poremba
