BAND PARENT/FAMILY SEATING FOR FOOTBALL GAMES

If you are coming to the football games, please come sit down next to the band! If you are on the home side of the field the band is in the top section of the stands closest to the school. Look for the black podium in the stands. There will be a sectioned off area for the band but we would love for all our families and friends to join us in this area of the stands just outside the sectioned off area.


Please remember that the visitor concession stand supports the band program. We are working on getting permission for band family and friends to be able to cross the field on the track to be able to visit our concession stand. Stay tuned on what to do to be able to cross the field to support the band's concession stand!


HOMECOMING GAME SEPTEMBER 10th - ALUMNI BAND REGISTRATION FORM

PRE-GAME MEAL SPONSORSHIP

Thank you to the Band Boosters for providing the pre-game meal for this Friday's game, which makes sure that the marching band students are fed and ready to do their best. This week's meal will be from Zaxby's and salad will be available as a vegetarian option.

VOLUNTEER OPENINGS

Thanks to everyone who has signed up to volunteer for this week's game. But we still need more! There are several options still open. Pick one and sign up now!

Also, if you are available on Friday morning, we still need a volunteer to drop by the school for the Soft Drink Delivery:

  • Soft Drink delivery - Prior to home games, we need a volunteer that could go to the concession stand on Friday morning. This volunteer would unlock the concession stand door so that the delivery person can place the product inside the stand.
