7:00PM Kick off
8:00PM Approximate Half Time
8:15PM Approximate end of halftime; wrap up talk, change out of uniform, put props away (if they are used) be back in the stands by the start of 4th quarter.
9:00/9:30PM Approximate end of game.
Big Z's is open for you to enjoy at the end of the game. The band room will close approximately 15-20 minutes after the alma mater is performed. We love the victory lap if the team wins; however, please be mindful of volunteers, staff, and directors wanting to clear out and head home after a long day of working.
If you are a non-marching band student and would like a jacket, yours will say "Instrumental Music" instead of "Marching Pride." We realize in the past, only marching band students purchased the jacket. We feel all students in the program should be able to be included and sport such a jacket. Please download the form and follow the instructions on how to order. You can actually place an order via our online store's PayPal on this website. Contact Mrs. Savage if you have specific questions regarding this particular apparel item.
If you would like a themed show shirt or pull over hoodie, please return this form by Monday, September 23rd, 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.
