Jag Band Update 6/11/23

Hey folks,

Not too much to report this week! Hope you all enjoyed your first week of summer. As a 12-month employee, for some reason I feel like I’m busier now than when school is in session. We had a successful first In-Town Tuesday last week, as well as, if you saw my flood of messages and videos on the BAND app, a fantastic inaugural MISD movement camp.
Reminder: Students, you need to MOVE INTENTIONALLY EVERY DAY! Ride your bike, walk your dog, do some Yoga, do a workout! There are so many apps out there that just get you off of the couch. I use FitOn – which is free and full of guided 10-30 minute workouts of every sort: yoga, Pilates, cardio, strength etc… but you can find your own! Can’t wait to see what you all do! Keep an eye on the BAND app for sharing your workouts!

👏Action Items

2023 Forms Packet

Hard copies of the 2023 registration/MISD permission forms packet are in the band hall. Pick one up at your In-Town Tuesday.

Marching Band Rehearsal Shoes

I had a parent reach out to me asking about good shoes for the student for marching band rehearsals. Here is a link below from experts that work in Drum Corps International (DCI) recommend. Students who participate in DCI often rehearse 12-14 hours a day, so the correct shoe is a must. 

Students – Uniform Fitting (repeat from last week)

For those of you who missed this movement camp, all students were fitted for a uniform. If your name is listed below, please either message me on the BAND app or reply to this email with a “form fitting” shirt size from Extra Small to 5XL. Both male and female sizes are used. If you have a friend that is about your size, ask them what size they ended up getting. I am missing sizes from the following students:

Adan, Giancarlo

Cruz, Mauricio
Garcia, Angel
Hayhurst, Matthew
Nguyen, Tuyet
Perez, Isabelle
Powell, Kellen
Quiles-Soto, Keanna
Stanca, Sofia
Ubaydullah, Sumayyah
Valdez, Joel
Valencia, Zachary

Zavala, Aileen

Students – Go Move/Workout 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️💪👟 (repeat from last week)

Do a little bit every day. Walk the dog, go for a jog, lift weights, do push-ups/sit-ups/pull-ups, just move so your body is ready for marching band. 

That’s all for now. See most of you tomorrow and have a great week!
