Homecoming Game
We will be performing Pre-Game this week at Homecoming. This will begin around 7:05pm. At halftime, we will be playing for the homecoming court presentation.
Homecoming Dance
I forwarded a letter from Ms. Rix discussing the Homecoming Dance at the FAAC following the game. Here are some details on how this will need to work for the band.
  1. Any student desiring to stay for the homecoming dance must be checked out by their parent or guardian following the game (No Exceptions).
  2. Any student being checked out will need to put their name on a list by 2:40pm on Wednesday. Any student not on the list will not be allowed to be checked out on Friday evening.
  3. The student will be allowed to quickly change following the 4th quarter.
  4. The parent is responsible for delivering the uniform and checking it in on Friday Night when the band returns to the school. No uniform is allowed to be taken home.
  5. If your child is in the front ensemble and unloads the truck at school following the game, we will need you (The Parent) to help us unload the truck upon return to the school.
  6. Please remember that no mums or garters are allowed in the stands in the band area. Please make arrangements to get your child the mum or garter when they are checking out.
