Things We Like
Wow, what a weekend! From an exciting Friday Night rivalry game to a spectacular car show on Saturday, this band knows how to represent! A huge shout out to Les and Owenn Skulski and Josh Parrish for all their time put in to making the first annual car show a success and a special thanks also to all the volunteers who helped out too. We have created a great momentum for next year's show to be even bigger and better!
Parent volunteers needed
We are still in need of volunteers for this Friday night's game vs. James Clemens. Please sign up in Charms or contact Jaime Davis if you can help out. It takes a village to help these kids have a wonderful Friday Night Lights experience. email@example.com
All Band fees due by November 7th.
Reminder - all band fees are due by the fall concert date of November 7th. But you can make payments between now and then so that you don't have to pay them all on that date. Make payments through Venmo, a check to the band box with your child's name on the envelope, or by credit card through Charms.
The final order date for the London apparel will be October 20th. These can be paid through Venmo or a check in the band box.

Full band uniform. Color Guard will wear red dresses. Bring your uniform in your garment bag with all accessories (shoes, black socks, black gloves, shako, gauntlets).
Hair should be pulled back out of your face (including guys with long hair) and no jewelry. Pierced ears can be covered with band aids.
Please do not pick up/park on Billie Watkins St at night. This is a safety issue. It's not a well-lighted area and having students go in between cars and cross the road is not safe. In addition, our trucks and equipment trailers need space to get back in. Please pull into a space in the parking lot and wait for your student or come meet them!
We strongly prefer students to ride the bus to and from events. However, if you need to check your student out after a game, please let us know ahead of time through email and make sure the student checks out with a director or Mrs. Davis, our volunteer coordinator after the game so we can account for that student.
