If you would like a themed show shirt or pull over hoodie, please return this form by Friday, September 20th, 2019. We want to place this order by that date, so that the apparel can arrive in time for our first show in a few weeks. We are only taking orders this one time. So act now and fast. Only cash and checks will be accepted as forms of payment. We will not cash the checks until October 1st. Thank you!
Good afternoon Senior Marching Band & Color Guard Parents,
An e-mail went out to the senior parents regarding the senior night for next Friday's game. I was informed that all of our marching band and color guard seniors will be recognized during the pre-game recognition ceremony when the football and cheer participants are announced, and not during halftime like last year.
We highly encourage each senior to participate and be escorted by their parents, or family member(s). If you are unable to attend this event please let me know as soon as possible. We also need to know if your student will be escorted by another parent or instructor from our organization. We need to keep current band members in the stands or in the national anthem block during this event, so we will not be able to have current members escorting seniors during the ceremony.
You are more than welcome to bring flowers, balloons, and other gifts for your senior that night.
Once I receive an official meeting place and time, I will communicate that to you. I would plan on being to the school between 6:15-6:30pm that evening.
Families can now begin soliciting ad and trophy sponsors for our 51st Annual Band Spectacular tournament. For each ad and or trophy sponsor you pick up, your student will earn 50% toward their participation donation. Download the ad and trophy sponsorship packet below. Feel free to make additional copies as needed. Remember, the more ad and trophy sponsorships we bring in, the less money we have to spend out of our general fund, meaning, we can do more for our students!
This week's schedule is not much different than any other week. We will begin rehearsal at 3:30pm, and instead of rehearsing straight through, we will perform halftime at the JV game around 4:30/4:45pm (possibly a little later). Students will have anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour break before having to return to school to get ready for the Varsity game. It is recommended they bring a snack or have a dinner dropped off, or they can bring money for concessions during the 3rd quarter at the Varsity game.
