A Note from the Directors
Monday, 08 December 2014 08:04

Week of December 8th


Hello Band Families,

I hope everyone had a good weekend!  Just a quick reminder to all PEP BAND members that we have rehearsal Monday after school (as usual) until 4:00pm, then our first performance this Tuesday night.  On Tuesday, we will meet at 6:00pm in the Bandroom to warm up, then proceed down to the gym.  We will be finished with the Varsity Girl's Basketball Game approximately 9:00pm.  Notice to those PEP BAND members who do not already have a blue band T SHIRT - you must purchase one for $5.00 from Mr. Niemiec either Monday or Tuesday prior to the game.  Email Mr. Niemiec with questions.

Secondly, there is a Royal Guardians Band/Guard Booster meeting this Wednesday night at 7:00 - 8:00pm in the HS Bandroom.  All are invited to attend.  Please enter door #13.

Lastly, I hope to see everyone at the Band Department's Holiday Concert "...And the Bells Shall Ring!" this Thursday night at 7:00pm in the Leonard Auditorium.  Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students.  The student's have rehearsed very well and the evening should be wonderful way to end the semester!  The Auditorium opens up at 6:35pm.

Thanks for reading - have a great week!
Mr. Niemiec

Band Chaperones Needed December 11th


All HSEHS band students will be performing in the Leonard Auditorium at the Main Campus for their Winter Concert next week. This will take place next Thursday, December 11th, 7:00 pm. We will need 2 chaperones for the Symphonic Band and one person to volunteer as a hall monitor before and after the program.
Being a chaperone is very easy and you will receive FREE ADMISSION to the concert

Basic Responsibility:

To accompany your assigned band throughout the performance. Being visible in order to assist students who may need help or have questions. You will NOT miss your child’s band performance, as you will be able to listen to your assigned band from the audience. I would need you to arrive at 6:15 and meet in the band hallway at the main campus. I will be there to answer any questions you may have.

TO SIGN UP: Please go to this Sign Up Genius link.
One very important detail is that every adult chaperone must have a current background check on file. If you have questions regarding a background check, please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I encourage you to check out the band's website and register for our weekly newsletter. It has some very important information updated weekly. Please go to www.hsehsbands.com. To register for the newsletter, go to the Navigation panel on the left and scroll down (4th from the bottom) to "Newsletter Subscription".
Thank you very much!
