Trader Joe's Opening
Trader Joe's has asked that we provide a small group of students for their grand opening tentatively on Thursday, September 30th (same day as Albertville Game). We are planning on having leadership team and seniors perform. It is scheduled to be in the morning, so you should plan to miss class. More details coming....
The game at Albertville that is now scheduled for Friday, October 1st has BEEN MOVED BACK to Thursday, October 2nd. The game is still in Albertville. I think this will be better for most people anyway since you can get an earlier start to your fall break after school finishes on Friday. This change was due to a lack of referees available on Friday in the Albertville area. Don't shoot the messenger!
Fall Break Game
We have a game during Fall Break on Friday, October 8th against Austin at Austin High School. As with years past, we will be taking a volunteer pep band to this game and will not be performing halftime. We ask that if you are in town to please attend the game!
We will be asking students about their commitment in the next couple of weeks so we can secure the correct number of school buses and plan for the game.
September 24th - no game/bye week. Possible rehearsal for competition
September 25th - Marching Competition at Gadsden (plan for a full day event).
Wednesday, September 29th - Performance at the HCMS vs. HJHS Game at Milton Frank
Trucks arrive at 5:30, Students meet at 6:00 pm. Game at 6:30. We are performing halftime show!
Thursday, September 30th - Game vs. Albertville at Albertville HS.
