2019-20 Sumner HS Spartan Band & Color Guard

(Updated 12/8/19) 

....................................................................................                                                                                            
 
Thanks for a great day yesterday and a great week as we came back from the Thanksgiving Break and went right into our first Pep Band performance of the season on Thursday night and 3 terrific Holiday Parades yesterday.  The weather was unexpectedly excellent for this time of year, the crowds were large and enthusiastic, the music and routines were fantastic, and overall it was a really good day performing in front of thousands of spectators in the 3 cities.  Thank you again to the many parent chaperones who gave their time to come along with us at the parades and to have a giant spread of treats waiting for us when we returned to SHS.  It's a festive time of year and such a change from our more serious performance of just a month ago at Auburn and we're proud of how you can do both "styles" of performances so well.  Did we win the "Battle of the Bands" at the Enumclaw Holiday Parade last night (for the 10th year in a row)?  I haven't heard yet, but I'm sure we'll find out soon.  Again, thanks for the great performances yesterday and at the Basketball Game Thursday night.  Now we move on to the performances this week:  2 Pep Band Basketball Games 
(a voluntary attendance Wednesday Boys BB Game and a Full-Group/Must-Attend First Girls Home Game on Friday - with a Color Guard halftime performance as well) and 3 Jazz Ensembles performances - Thursday at our annual South Hill Mall performance at 7:00PM in the "Acoustic Lounge" - Food Court - and Saturday with both our Community Holiday Dinner performance at 11:00AM in the SHS Gym and the White River HS Evening of Jazz performances at 6:00PM at WRHS.  So, another busy week coming up for us (as well as a very busy week next week as we finish-out 2019).  A couple of other things:
  • You can keep the great decorations and lights on your instruments for the next couple of weeks if you'd like (for both of our Color Guard performances on December 13th and 20th we'll be performing Christmas Promenade in the darkened gym to show-off the lit CG poles and the lights look really cool for the Band as well . . .).  Jazz groups too can "light-up!"
  • Don't forget that all of the rooming-lists for the Hawaii Trip are due TOMORROW (Monday), so make sure you've figured out and signed-up with your roommates.
  • The Auburn group pictures that people ordered are in - if you've paid for them drop in and pick them up (I've got them in my office), but I've got to hold onto them if you haven't paid yet, so get them paid for so you can show them off at your holiday gatherings.
  • Remember to PAY YOUR FEES to both the SHS Bookkeeper and the SBPA - try to end the year with a zero-balance and start out 2020 owing zero.
