Good Evening Marching Band Families!
     Its been a great three days at ETHS as we welcomed our 42 new marchers to our program!  Tomorrow evening, Thursday June 16th, we will welcome back all of our returning members for our first official rehearsal as a full band.  Rehearsal begins at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 8:30 p.m.  Please arrive on time - eat dinner, hydrate, put on sunscreen and appropriate attire/sneakers prior to arrival.  Following rehearsal, we will provide a screening of The Matrix in the band room (rated PG-13, run time is 2:30).  We plan to end rehearsal early in order to end our evening around 10:00 p.m.  Students are encouraged to bring their own snacks and pillows for our Matrix Movie Night!



Let's kick of our season in a great way!  See you tomorrow!
Go Kits!

Good Afternoon ETHS Wildkit Marching Band Students and Families!
     I hope that this email finds you well and that you are enjoying the first few days of
summer!  In just five days, we will begin our 2016 pre-season marching activities at ETHS!  It's going to be an exciting several weeks as we welcome over 40 new marchers to our program and prepare for our July 4th parade in the city of Evanston.
     Please see attached for a digital copy of our
summer marching band mailer, which went out in today's U.S. Mail and should arrive in your mailboxes by the weekend.  Take note of the "June Addendum" for details regarding our rehearsal schedule and the supplies you will need for the first days of marching.  All of our required forms are also attached to this email for your perusal, however a printed version that is already stapled and hole punched for easy administrative sorting on our end is on its way to you in the mail.
     Please also take note of the donation letter and consider making a contribution to our scholarship fund, which helps to subsidize this wonderful experience for students in need - you will be able to add a donation to your shopping cart as you pay your fees online (Due August 1st).  Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mr. Bufis if you are in need of financial assistance - no student will be turned away because of difficulty with fees.
