  5. Let’s refine Tiger Time a bit more:
    1. Your first responsibility is to come to sit in a chair for attendance. If you are not in a chair @ 1:55, you’ll be counted absent
    2. If you signed up for a particular thing….for instance, All-Region practice….that’s what you’ll be doing. Anything else and you’ll be unable to use TT. 
    3. If you are in another teacher’s TT, then that’s where you will be; you will not be in the band hall. 
    4. When you are practicing, you will be practicing a particular thing, like All Region music or a UIL solo or a sectional for band. You will not be playing section songs, stands music, etc. 
  6. Clean out your lockers by Friday or they get emptied for you; need to reassign lockers now that marching inst. are gone. 
  7. Take your water jug home by Friday; if it’s still here after that, names will be removed and they will be cleaned and sanitized to go to a band member next year for half price.
