NEXT GENERAL PARENT MEETING: DECEMBER 16th 6:30pm
Congratulations to the members of the 2014 Jazz Band. Go to the Jazz Band Page on Blackhawkbrigade.org to view results. Jazz Combo Rehearsals resume Wednesday & Friday this week during zero period (you get Monday off). If you have one star by your name - you are required to be at all combo rehearsals. If you have 2 stars, you are an alternate, and should come to as many of these as you are able. You will be "in training" for the future, so the choice is yours to get better (or not).
THANK YOU TO THE MEMBERS OF THE DRUM LINE AND WIND SYMPHONY FOR YOUR TIME ON THANKSGIVING, AND FRIDAY'S CIF GAME. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Disneyland & Tamale Festival:
We have four MANDATORY parade rehearsals (Dec 1, 4, 8, and 11). If you miss one of these rehearsals, you will not go with us to Disneyland. If you have not provided appropriate "communication" to the Boosters/Treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 1st, you will be ineligible to rehearse in the parade block.
Detailed Call Sheets for the Tamale Festival will be given out this week. Your call time will be 7:30am at the CV History Museum (Downtown Indio). We will load EVERYTHING (uniforms and instruments) Friday after school. You will be dismissed by 11:30am.
