Up Next!

Senior Dinner!

Thursday, Oct. 13th, 4:30pm

450 Washington Street

Amherst, OH

Seniors gather to enjoy dinner together before their last home game.

Senior Night! 10/14

Thursday Night the Seniors will get together for dinner in the band room hosted by the Boosters.

Then Friday Night before the game, we invite Seniors and their parents in prior to pregame for pictures. Seniors will then meet their families on the field during pregame as all the Seniors are announced. With an extra fun halftime show to perform for the evening, it's bound to be a great night!

Underclassmen Parents: Help!

Help carry on AMC traditions of excellence

If there are any non-Senior Parents/Families that would be interested in helping out with any of the regular activities on Friday, we would really appreciate it. (uniform room, chaperoning, moving equipment onto the field)

If you would be willing to do a little more (put up balloons, streamers, pre-made posters), that would be the best!

Senior Parents will be busy getting photos taken with their students, having to line up to be announced during pre-game, and other things.

If you would be interested in helping out with anything that week, please email the Boosters at band_boosteres@amherstk12.org or check out the sign-up in the band app. https://band.us/band/87597135/post/60

Later in the Month!

Halloween Parade

When this Senior Class were freshmen was the last time we were able to do the Halloween Parade! But it's back! With big thanks to Studio Q and Kiedrowski's we are so excited to take part again!

The band marches this parade in costume. In years past, the students would decide their costumes as a section. For example, this year the 5 bass drummers decided on TMNT & Splinter.


Band Boosters will be accepting donations of bagged Halloween candy to pass out to the younger kids during the parade. If you would like to donate a bag, it can be turned in to Mrs. Sauer at any time. (such as during lunch or after practice)

Let's have fun and give back to the community that supports us!
