THANK YOU Lastly, I'd like to thank all of our wonderful parents who volunteered this football season in any way. The amount of work you do with uniforms, concessions, chaperoning, roading, building props, feeding our kids, setting up fundraisers and dinners, selling spirit items, handling booster memberships, decorating the band hall for UIL, running our drumline festival, selling Bronco cards and planners...the list goes on and on. Thank you for taking care of ALL OF OUR KIDS. Our students follow the lead of adults and it's very important that we know that the things we do are for them. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me at Daniel.Asgari@nisd.net Have a great day! -Mr. Asgari Week 15 12/9/19 - Monday - Jazz 1 Saxes, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm 12/9/19 - Monday - Firehouse Subs Spirit Nights, Bandera/1604 Locations, 6 pm - 8 pm -- 12/10/19 - Tuesday - Percussion Rehearsal, 7:30 am 12/10/19 - Tuesday - Region Orchestra Sectional, Clark HS, 6 pm 12/10/19 - Tuesday - Firehouse Subs Spirit Nights, Bandera/1604 Locations, 6 pm - 8 pm -- 12/11/19 - Wednesday - Percussion Rehearsal, 7:30 am 12/11/19 - Wednesday - Jazz Combo, 7:45 am 12/11/19 - Wednesday - Musical Rehearsal, 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm 12/11/19 - Wednesday - Firehouse Subs Spirit Nights, Bandera/1604 Locations, 6 pm - 8 pm -- 12/12/19 - Thursday - Musical Rehearsal, 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm 12/12/19 - Thursday - Jazz 1 Brass, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm -- 12/13/19 - Friday - Region Orchestra Clinic & Concert, TBA -- 12/14/19 - Saturday - Region Orchestra Clinic & Concert, TBA Week 16 - TENTATIVE 12/16/19 - Monday - Jazz 1 Saxes, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm 12/16/19 - Monday - Musical Rehearsal, 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm -- 12/17/19 - Tuesday - Percussion Rehearsal, 7:30 am 12/17/19 - Tuesday - Jazz Combo, 7:45 am -- 12/18/19 - Wednesday - Percussion Rehearsal, 7:30 am 12/18/19 - Wednesday - Musical Performance, 7 pm -- 12/19/19 - Thursday - Musical Performance, 7 pm 12/19/19 - Thursday - Jazz 1 Brass, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm -- 12/20/19 - Friday - Musical Performance, 7 pm
