Dear Members & Parents, June 24, 2014
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our 2014 edition of the Fannin County High School Band. I look forward to continuing our strong tradition of excellence. With hard work, perseverance, and teamwork, we will achieve great success.
Being a member is a big commitment not only for you, but also for your family. The work is challenging, but the rewards are great. I expect your best efforts in all that we do.
It will not be long until we all get to come together to begin band camp! Band Camp is required of all participants.

We have a great fundraiser we are starting in a few weeks. More details to follow soon. Any money or fees that you pay into your account can be used for any band activity.
Want to be on the leadership team this year?
We will meet July 21 & 22 from 9-4PM to set up.
Section leaders will be officially named before band camp starts this year during the leadership days.
Remind 101 will be updated with a link to the music within the week. I know many of you have expressed interest in getting to work on the music.
The school office is open daily if you need your instrument. Also, the link to the recording is up on Facebook.
Practices once school starts are:
Mondays & Tuesdays 3:45-5:45PM
Marching Band Part Assignments See Below:
1 The other parts are too big and I will need to post somewhere else, but this will get you started!!
Some notes Note on Part Assignments:
The asterisk equals 1st part.
Please understand that I needed to put some very strong musicians on second parts. I cannot have all freshmen on the 2nd parts.
Percussion: If you are a freshman, you will probably be in the front ensemble, so take a look at the mallet parts. Don't get too upset if parts look hard, there will be lots of help.
Guard, you are not on this list simply because there are no music parts to assign to you, so no worries- I did not forget you.
Make sure when you print your part that you print selected page only, or the whole document will print (thats a lot of pages)
Please only print from the website. This page will only be up for a few weeks, so take advantage. The recording is easily found on youtube.
See you all next week!
