MAKE SURE YOU LOOK BELOW FOR THE CODE TO YOUR CLASS AND MAKE SURE YOU GO TO MR. HUNGER’S GOOGLE CLASSROOM. ALL ASSIGNMENTS FROM MARCH 27 THROUGH THE WEEK OF MAY 4-8 ARE IN THERE. MAY 11 WILL BE THE LAST WEEK. I WILL ALSO BE GETTING IN TOUCH WITH EVERYONE WHO TOOK A SCHOOL INSTRUMENT HOME SO WE CAN MAKE SURE WE HAVE YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS DOWN IF YOU ARE KEEPING YOUR INSTRUMENT THROUGH THE SUMMER. ALSO NEED TO KNOW IF IT NEEDS REPAIR. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING ALL-REGION MUSIC OUT. THE FASTER YOU GET IT THE FASTER YOU START IT AND THE BETTER CHANCE YOU HAVE. I WILL POST ON THIS SIGHT WHEN IT IS ALL READY.
I WILL TRY TO LET A DANIEL, ANNA, REAGAN (OF COURSE), AND JOSH KNOW WHEN I AM AT THE BAND HALL OTHER THAT MONDAY. THAT WAY THEY CAN SEND OUT A TEXT TO PEOPLE THEY HAVE AND LET YOU KNOW IN CASE YOU NEED TO MEET UP WITH ME FOR SOMETHING. OTHERWISE, WE ARE THERE ON MONDAYS FROM 10-12. THEN WE USUALLY GO INTO KILGORE OR LONGVIEW FOR A LITTLE WHILE BUT ARE BACK FOR THE AFTERNOON TILL ABOUT 4. IF YOU WILL CALL ME OR TEXT ME ON MY CELL ON MONDAYS I WILL SET UP A TIME TO MEET YOU AT THE BAND HALL.
I NEED FOR EVERYONE, MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL, WHO MADE 1ST DIVISIONS ON THEIR SOLO AND/OR ENSEMBLE TO EITHER TAKE A SELFIE PICTURE AND SEND IT TO ME OR SET UP A TIME TO MEET ME ON THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF THE BAND HALL SO I CAN GET A PICTURE. IT NEEDS TO BE SOON. THIS IS FOR THE YEARBOOK. I ALSO NEED ALL SENIORS, DRUM MAJORS, AND BAND PRESIDENT.
I WILL ALSO BE TALKING TO YOU VERY SOON ABOUT UNIFORMS. PLEASE CHECK THIS SITE A LOT.
I WILL ALSO BE POSTING THE SUMMER BAND SCHEDULE ALONG WITH SENDING YOU ONE IN THE MAIL. THE SUMMER SCHEDULE WILL BE LITTLE DIFFERENT THIS YEAR IF WE GET TO START LIKE NORMAL SIMPLY BECAUSE THE LEADERS, WHO I WILL NAME, WILL NEED TO HELP A LITTLE MORE WITH THE NEW 7TH GRADERS BECAUSE OF THEIR SHORTENED 6TH GRADE YEAR. IF WE DO NOT GET TO START AS NORMAL I WILL TRY TO LET YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENT SCHEDULE FOR THAT.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH WE MISS YOU. I AM SO SORRY WE DID NOT GET TO DO CONTEST. I KNOW WE WOULD HAVE DONE WELL. I BELIEVE IN MY HEART WE WERE HEADED FOR 1ST DIVISIONS IN BOTH CONCERT AND SIGHTREADING. I ALSO BELIEVE WE WOULD HAVE DONE REALLY WELL AT STATE.
I FEEL THE SADDEST FOR OUR SENIORS. THEY HAVE BEEN SUCH A GREAT GROUP FOR OUR BAND. ANY SUCCESS WE HAVE FROM NOW ON THEY HAVE A HAND IN. THEY ARE GOING TO STILL HELP ME TEACH THE NEXT GROUP OF LEADERS. SENIORS—PLEASE KNOW, YOU ARE A PART OF US FOREVER.
6TH GRADERS—WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING A BIG GROUP OF YOU MOVE UP. YOU WILL HAVE A BLAST. IT WILL BE HARD ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF THE SHORTENED YEAR BUT WE HAVE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO WILL HELP YOU BE WHERE YOU NEED TO BE MARCHING AND PLAYING.
KEEP YOUR HEADS UP. WE ARE GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS. WE ARE STILL THE AWESOME OVERTON BANDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WE MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

High school band year in review: We earned an Excellent rating at Region 21 UIL Marching Contest and at the National Association of Military Marching Bands Competition. We had Jordan Williams make the J. H. All-Region Band and Coltin Mott-Hayes make alternate. We had Anna Jarrell and Alex Tharp make the High School All-Region Concert Band and Montana Tarkington and Daniel Prater make the High School All-Region Symphonic Band and both advanced to Area. Daniel placed at Area which put him in the All-State Band. In February at the Texas Music Educators Convention in San Antonio he placed 1st Chair in the All-State Band. Later in February, we participated in Solo and Ensemble for Middle school and high school. Andria Green, Tanna Pollard, Jordan Williams, Coltin Mott-Hayes, Zoey Green, Matthew Netherland, Lila Gurley, and Kadden Williams all earned 1st divisions on solos for middle school. Zoey Green, Jordan Williams, and Coltin Mott-Hayes also received a 1st division on a clarinet trio. For high school, Tiffany Hedrick, Lexi Allison, Skye Page, and Jacob Brown all earned 1st divisions on class 3 solos. Kyiriona Rolland earned a 1st division on a class 2 solo. Alex Tharp earned a 1st division on a class 1 solo. Daniel Prater earned a 1st division on a class 1 solo and is advancing to state. Sarah Garcia, Heather Boehm, Lila Gurley, and Colton Sullens earned a 1st division on a class 3 trumpet ensemble. Nekila Weir, Megan Yancey, Alex Brown, and Lilly Hearon earned a 1st division on a class 1 flute quartet and advanced to state. Daniel Prater, Alex Tharp, and Montana Tarkington earned a 1st division on a class 1 clarinet trio and advanced to state. Cameron Morrow, Braxton Pierce, and Lucas Garcia earned a 1st division on a class 1 trombone trio and advanced to state. Reagan Hunger, Colton Sullens, Cameron Morrow, Braxton Pierce, and Kyiriona Rolland earned a 1st division on a class 1 Brass Quintet and advanced to state. The band has been working hard for concert/sight-reading evaluation.
Hopefully we will be back to normal very soon. Let’s be ready.
