October is Band Competition Month-
Every member and every practice is very important. Parents, please speak with your child about the importance of being at every rehearsal on time.  This year we were not able to learn drill during summer camp as we have in the passed due to the very low percentage of students that had competed the state required physical exams. This resulted is our shorter than normal performances at our Friday night performances during the month of September.  The students have done an outstanding job of playing catch-up with the rest of the schools. Friday night's performance at Cole HS was outstanding as they performed all three songs for this year's show and are about 8 sets from finishing the drill. The plan for the 1st half of October is to learn 4 sets per week and add body movements to songs 1 and 2 so we can be ready for UIL Region Marching Contest on the 16th. UIL Region Marching Contest is the band's performance assessment by 3 state certified judges. They will evaluate to what the degree the students performed their music,  executed their individual marching skills and sequence of body movements and drill formations. They will assign a division rating from 1 thru 5 with 1 being the best. They will be competing against a pre-set rubric standard and not against other bands at region contest. The Ro-Hawk Band has 50 year tradition of putting on a great performance at UIL Region Marching Contest and now they are back on track to making this year's performance another great UIL performance!!!
