It's finally here. The first home football game. The Marching Rockets are at home this week to support our CNE Rockets as they take on the Eagles of Eastern Pike. Rehearsal starts at 5:30 on the practice field. We will change into uniforms and parade in the stadium by 6:40. Students should eat before they arrive. They will have a break during 3rd quarter to visit the restroom and concession stand.
The CNE Band uniform includes the student providing long black socks, blue band shirt, and long hair tucked up into the band hat. There are quite a few members that still owe for their band shoes-$25.00 payable to CNE Band Boosters.
We also have a bake sale during home games. We ask for band families to please bring packaged baked goods in 50 cent portions. They can be dropped off by students before practice at the table in the front of the band room.
-Students should be dropped off and picked by the band room door at the back of the school. I try my best to be at every band event 30 minutes before the report time to open the door. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE INSIDE THE SCHOOL BUILDING BEFORE MR. MOORE OR MR. P ARRIVE. Please leave the first two spots by the building available for band director parking. Students must wait in the area outside the band room for pick up. I don't want to leave anyone unsupervised. If you anticipate being more than 15 minutes late, please make other arrangements for your child's transportation.They should always wait near the firelane by the band room so Mr. Moore and Mr. P know who is still waiting for a ride.
-Band members should always arrive at practice planning on working outside in athletic shoes for marching with shorts and t-shirt. CNE marching rockets do not rehearse in barefeet or flipflops.
-CNE Band Members should have a natural hair color(does not have to be their own), and long hair should be worn up for performances. If your hair touches the back of your uniform jacket, it should be worn up.
-Lastly, it is very important that students eat properly, rest effectively and hydrate properly. The CNE Marching Rockets work hard to prepare for our performances. We are only as strong as our weakest member, and you aren't helping anyone by being tired or sick and sitting on the sideline. Be prepared to work hard.
This is the part of last weeks email that Mr Moore had wrong information copied and pasted from last year-this is the correct information.
