Hello Kempner Band Family,
I am eagerly anticipating our students honoring America’s finest at the City of Houston Veteran’s Day Parade tomorrow. Please find the timeline and important information below.
- Band Students will be wearing our full marching uniforms, Colorguard will wear Warm-Ups.
- We will bring ponchos with us should the weather be bad.
- Due to the tight timeline, the only time students will have to eat lunch will be on the bus back home. Students should eat a hearty breakfast tomorrow.
- There is a blood drive at KHS tomorrow. Students will be allowed to participate, however I would STRONGLY encourage students to donate blood another day. There are blood banks open everyday, and there are 3 other blood drives at KHS the rest of the year. If a student is going to donate, they need to eat well tonight, drink lots of water, and have a full breakfast tomorrow.
Please find the timeline below. Thanks!
