1. The PEP BAND PICTURE for the winter program will be taken on Monday, 12/1 @ 2:45 in the Gym.  If you have signed up to participate in Pep Band, please plan to be in the picture!

2. DRIVE ONE WRAPUP – The Band Boosters received a check from Liberty Ford for the maximum amount of $6,000!  Many thanks to Kathy Richards and Nancy Randall for organizing the event, and to Walt Bailey & Liberty Ford for supporting our Band Program!

3. CITRUS – Our first Citrus Delivery was a success!  Many thanks to Kathy Drinko and Lynn Robie for their work on this fundraiser, and to the students and parents who helped with the process… I received very positive reports about how helpful, positive, and respectful our student volunteers were.  Way to be a CLASS ACT!

Our next Delivery will be on Friday, December 12th. 

Looking ahead… Wind Ensemble students, mark your calendars for this event.  We will be performing a side-by-side program with the 5th Grade Band on the morning of 3/21.  This will be a very special opportunity for you to serve as mentors to our new band members, and for them to see what is possible for them to achieve in the future!

On Monday & Tuesday (the 24th and 25th), students will combine into 5th period to rehearse for the Holiday Parade. Barring inclement weather, we WILL go outside. Students, please bring your coats to class!

HOLIDAY PARADE – Sunday, Nov. 30 (CT – 2:30 @ the HS)
We will bus down to Lawnpark Drive to assemble for the parade, which begins at 4:00.  Following the parade, buses will pick us up at the Old Stadium, and we will return to the school at approximately 4:30.

After our return, UNIFORMS will be hung up at school.  Please remember to remove all personal belongings (including Dinkles) from your uniform bag.  

Absence requests for the parade must follow established procedures, using the Absence Request Form.


We are thankful for our “Band Family,” and wish you all the best for an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend!
