Uniform Instructions for ADDING THE CREASE to the Competition Uniform
(ALL BRASS, WOODWINDS, and PERCUSSION MUST do this before SEPT. 13 (Next Friday.)

Black Pants Uniform (known as the "Competition Uniform")
The hems are adjustable by snaps.  Please take the time to do the following:

Find the hem length that puts the hem of the pants GENTLY touching the shoe laces.  NOTE: Students should stand at playing position to find this length.  You can adjust the hem AND you can adjust the bib straps near the shoulders.

Once you find the correct length, all pants should be pressed/ironed with LOW HEAT.  All students will be inspected on Fridays.  Please show your child how to iron.  These are important life skills they need.

All Winds and Percussion need long Black Socks

Bradstreet Notes:
What a great week we've had!  The kids are receiving a tremendous amount of information and they are doing an excellent job at retaining this information.  You will see quite a bit of new material, tempos, choreography and one new song on Friday night.  The show is starting to take shape and we can't wait to perform "C'est La Vie" for the public for the first time.  Please cheer nice and loud for our students.  They are working hard and will feed off your energy.
 
See you Friday Night!
