Marching Tiger Families,
We had an awesome show this past Friday with many positive comments from spectators and families. This week we've made a point to continue to develop choreography, refine the drill and to continue to promote quality tone production during the demanding moments of the show. I'm beyond proud of these kids and their efforts since July. We are looking forward to another great night this Friday.
The ticketing process for this week (and for here on out) will be the same as last week. In fact, there is no change to the process in any way. We were hoping that OHSAA (per our request) would split the ticket codes into single tickets instead of pairs, but this did not happen. Senior parents will receive 2 tickets and underclassmen tickets will be issued on a first come, first serve based on timestamps. Please see my previous Ticketing update from last week for more detailed information.
We will have the same uniform as our last home game.
This Friday we will wear a modified uniform. I discussed this with Cohort A kids today, I plan on doing the same thing on Thursday with Cohort B. The uniform for Friday will be as follows:
- Tennis Shoes (only tennis shoes, no boots or slip on shoes)
- Blue Jeans (no jeans with holes)
- Band polo
- Hair must be up
- No Large or colorful piercings
- The weather for Friday will be mild. It's not quite chilly yet. No blankets in the stands, please.
***Students may bring a Tiger or PHSC sweatshirt/jacket to wear in the stands. No college apparel or graphic designs of any kind will be permitted. We will remove our sweatshirts for Pregame and Halftime.***
Senior Night Bio's
I believe we are doing fairly well in the collection of senior bios for the 10/24. Please have a quick follow-up with your senior to make sure they have completed the necessary forms and downloaded the appropriate music for the 10/23 post-game show for parents.
