Overton Mustangs Band

                Wow!!!!  I can’t believe it is already July!  I hope you are having a wonderful, restful summer.  It is, however, time to start thinking about the new school year.  You should be getting this schedule in a letter within the next couple of weeks. The beginning of summer band will be a little different in schedule because Aug. 1st is on a Wednesday.  Because of this we will have our leadership meeting all day on Tuesday, July 31.  The following students will be asked to be at the band hall this day:  Reagan Hunger, Daniel Prater, Anna Jarrell, Zach Smith, Kiara Mumphrey, Maddy Hearon, Jagger Bay, Alex Tharp, Cheyenne Tubb, Lucas Garcia, and Makayla Gurley.  We will review the year ahead, plan, set up the band hall, make sure folders and instruments are ready, and review marching and music fundamentals.  We will work from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00, take lunch from 12 to 1:30, and come back to work 1:30-3:30 p.m.
                  On August 1st, we will start at 9:00 a.m. with squad leaders Reagan Hunger, Daniel  Prater, Anna Jarrell, Zach Smith, and Krista Reedy with helpers Kiara Mumphrey, Maddy Hearon, Jagger Bay, Alex Tharp, Cheyenne Tubb, Lucas Garcia, and Makayla Gurley working with all incoming 7th graders, new students, and students who missed summer band last year—Shaun Garcia, Colton Sullens, Gabe Sullens, and Brooke Wynn.  We will go from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00.  Will have lunch from 12:00 to 1:30.  Then full band will come in from 1:30-3:30.  August 2nd will be full band from 8:00 to 12:00, lunch from 12-1:30, and full band 1:30-4:00.  August 3rd, Friday, we will work full band from 8:00-12:00.
                  August 6-9th will be full band 8-12 and 1:30-4:00 and Friday, August 10th will be full band from 8-12.  Monday, August 13 will be full band 8-12 and 1:30-4.  I will have to tell you the rest of summer band once we get started because of teacher inservice starting Aug. 14.  
                   Please remember to get used to the heat.  Also, go ahead and find gym shorts and tall white socks for your uniform
                   Also remember that summer rehearsal is VERY IMPORTANT.  To be able to march the first few games you cannot miss more than 2 rehearsals.  Please be here.  To contact me: 409-223-2172 or email lynette.hunger@overtonisd.org.  Remember, if you must miss, you must contact me AHEAD of the rehearsal.
                   Varsity football players and volleyball players, I will be talking to coaches to set up a way to share you.
                    See you soon.  Let’s have a great year—the best one yet.
