We made it! We have the privilege of performing in the final football game of the extended playoff season. Although we have been here before in the past 4 years we must treat this as if it is something special and insist all students attend to promote the program and school spirit. (plus, many students and staff expect a script tigers!)
Breakfast with Santa
We have moved up the set-up time for BWS. The goal is to provide as much initial support from the students right after school before I dismiss them to go through our Football game prep and Dinner. If you are willing to volunteer to help finish set-up and not planning on attending the football game, you are just who we are looking for! Please see the links below.

Concert Date Change
Over the course of the last 5 weeks we have lost a collective 1 week of rehearsal to football game prep on Fridays. After discussing the matter with a few of our upperclassmen, colleagues and staff we have decided to move the PHSC Winter Concert to December 18, 2019 in the PHSC Performing Arts Center at 7:00pm. I know this is a very late date change and I do apologize. However, we feel it is what is best to promote the expectations we put on our concert programs throughout the rest of the year. Most importantly we want to give students the time they need to feel prepared to give a performance they would be proud of. Please email me with any concerns you might have. Ridgeview and Diley concerts will remain on their scheduled dates.
Dinner on Friday
Due to the time and distance we have to travel the boosters are providing a boxed dinner for all students to eat 3:30. We received a great deal from Holly Hills Farm in Reynoldsburg on a boxed meal including a Sub sandwich, bag of chips and cookie. If you get a chance to give them some of your personal business this holiday season, please consider doing so.
Friday is our last performance. We will be collecting and stacking hats/hat boxes and checking in uniforms when we return. Please be ready to accommodate this at the end of the evening. Last year we had multiple hats not returned and cost the club hundreds of dollars to replenish the inventory. I have been in contact with the uniform company and have replacement prices for uniform pieces that are beyond repair or missing. After receiving word from the uniform volunteers you will be able to see those additional fees in charms account.
3:00 BWS set-up
