Allen Eagle Escadrille TWIB Notes January 4-10, 2021

Playoff game on December 26, 2020

Message from Dr. Obado

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a happy and safe holiday season and is ready to start 2021 on a great note. I would like to thank our amazing volunteers and Allen Band Booster Association for helping us get through a challenging Fall semester. In particular, we appreciated all of our volunteers during the playoff season as it continued through the holidays.

Here are this week's announcements:

MARCHING BRASS/WOODWIND RETURN: All AHS/LFC At-Home & In-Person students that have AISD-owned marching instruments, must bring their instrument in for inspection and return this week to the AHS Ensemble Room (ER) - please see schedule below. Everyone will need to play their instrument for a director: bring appropriate mouthpieces, reeds, ligatures, etc as necessary. You may stay in the AHS Band Hall until classes begin if you do not have a ride. LFC students will need to figure out transportation to AHS and to LFC/Home after you are done. Failure to show up on your assigned time without advance notice will result in charging you for the missing instrument.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 5

  • 7:00am: All LFC Students (At-Home & In-Person Students)
  • 7:30am: All AHS At-Home Only Students
  • 1st Period: AHS Sym 1 & Sym 2
  • 2nd Period: AHS Wind Ensemble
  • 8th Period: AHS Sym 3 & Concert Band

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6

  • 5th Period: AHS Wind Symphony

IN-PERSON/AT-HOME BAND STUDENTS: All students should be prepared to play on Tuesday during their band classes (regardless of At-Home or In-Person status). Each director will communicate with their bands directly on Monday, January 4th. All students that are At-Home (and not coming in-person for their band class) will be emailed a Zoom link on Monday for their class on Tuesday. Everyone will have different Zoom links for this semester. Please note that Canvas & Skyward may not be adjusted until the end of the day tomorrow, if not later this week. Click HERE for AHS Band Placement. Click HERE for LFC Band Placement. These documents were emailed out in December and have not been edited for corrections. They are here for quick reference.
