News From the Band Room


Week #15

Hi Folks - Just a few quick reminders for this week.

  • The Myerstown Parade is this Saturday. Students should report to the high school by 2:00pm, inspection at 2:15pm with departure immediately following.
  • They will be wearing their band uniforms and their own Santa Hat. There are a few Santa hats available at the high school, but not many and most are not in the best of shape.
  • Students should dress warmly underneath their uniforms.
  • If your child is meeting us in Myerstown and/or leaving directly afterwards, they should have informed Mr. Fair with a note from you before leaving for break.
  • ROCS members should stay in Myerstown and have clothing to change into at the Myerstown UCC church immediately following the parade.

If for any reason the parade is canceled or postponed due to weather, I will inform everyone via Schoology and the remind text messaging app.

Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!

As always, if you have any questions, please email Mr. Fair
