Allen Eagle Escadrille TWIB Notes OCTOBER 5 - 11, 2020

Message from Dr. Obado

Our focus this week will be finishing the first 9-Week grading period strong and learning as much Star Wars drill as possible. We are looking to perform Star Wars at the Homecoming game on Oct 16! This week we will not be traveling to Cedar Hill for this week's game. If you're not going to the game, please enjoy the Friday off!

  • ELIGIBILITY: You can earn or lose eligibility this Friday 10/9.
  • ALLEN BAND BOOSTERS: Scroll down and check out announcements from the Allen Band Boosters.
  • NON-MARCHING STUDENT GAME ASSIGNMENT REMINDER: Reminder that only ONE paper is needed to substitute our first two games (from 9/25 & 10/2). Please remember that your extended deadline to submit in Canvas is Wednesday, Oct. 7. Teachers are closing grade books on Wednesday, Oct 7 as well.
  • RESERVE DATE: Reserve Wednesday, Oct. 14th for either a marching band rehearsal or homecoming event (6pm-8:30pm)
