Welcome back from Thanksgiving. We have under 3 weeks to prepare for our winter band concert on Dec. 13 with only 11 rehearsals to go. Please be practicing and looking ahead on the rehearsal schedules, which are  posted on the bulletin boards in the back of the room.

Attendance will be taken promptly at 2:45. If you have a class/sport conflict, tell Mr. Conrad. It is expected that you get music promptly after school regardless of conflicts throughout the season. Schedules will be passed out this Thursday, and rosters will also be published. If you need to see either schedules or rosters online, please visit acdavisbands.com. The band calendar will be updated some time later this week with basketball game dates with corresponding bands.

Friday November 30
First basketball game. Report time is 6:45. There is only ONE game this week. All band is required to attend so that we learn the routine. After this week’s game, the band will be broken up into two bands (orange band and black band) to take pressure off of each band member’s schedule. Please expect one game per weekend, either Friday or Saturday night.

Happy Practicing!

The Buccaneer Marching Band takes 3rd!

Drum Majors Salute

Congratulations to the Davis Buccaneer Marching Band, who won 3rd place in its division Saturday at the Tumwater Marching Band Festival.  This marks a historic moment, with Davis students achieving a placement award in the Finals competition for the first time ever.  80+ Davis band students made the trip to Tumwater, accompanied by 15 volunteers and 4 staff.  Their day of marching competition lasted 21 hours, and 1.5” of rain.  They were thrilled to represent Davis High School and bring home the recognition they worked hard to earn.
