Marching Season is FINALLY here!!!!

Dear Band Parents,


2020 has been quite the ride so far (how do we get off?!), and Mr. K and Ms. Barnhill started summer band optimistically but uncertain if there would even be a marching season. They gracefully navigated the new safety protocols, joined forces with Williams High School Band, and reworked the entire marching program! And now, the 2020 marching season is finally here!


Our first game is this Thursday, September 24th at 7 pm at Tim Kimbrough Stadium.


Below is Mr. K's Game Day Itinerary for marching band students.

As with everything else, our pre-game meals are going to look different this year. We’re going to be mainly serving boxed dinners and bottled drinks this year. Weather permitting, we’ll be eating outside as well. Thank you all for completing the order forms, I have noted where I need to order vegetarian, gluten-free, and made note of preferences. Please glance over the list below and contact me (erica.pds@verizon.net) if you have any specific concerns about that restaurant.


Sept 24 Schlotsky’s boxed sandwich meal

Oct 1 Chick Fil A sandwiches (salads for vegetarian, grilled for nut allergies)

Oct 29 Jason’s Deli boxed sandwich meal

Nov 19 Schlotsky’s boxed Pizza dinner meal

Dec 3 Cane’s boxed chicken finger meal**

**(Will have an alternative for vegetarian and gluten-free—possibly Chick Fil A again)
