As we look at our final week of preparation before the last band show of the season I want to say thank you! We've had great leadership from our student leaders in the band and great leadership from the Booster officers for the parents. The success of the band is truly a reflection of the countless hours of hard work given by so many!
Potential October 30th Playoff game
If the the Tigers win this Friday Central will have the opportunity to host a 4th football game at. home. We will attend this game and participate in the same fashion we have been up to this point in the season.
Because we have two events happening this weekend we will outline them as two separate events in one FYI. (In other words, make sure you are looking at the info for the correct day.)
Friday 10/23 - Playoff Game INFO
I am anticipating warmer weather than last week. We will continue our casual uniform of jeans and Polos for this Friday.
I've seen the booster emails going out, they are doing a great getting this info out to parents. I do want to reiterate that Friday's tickets are though the OHSAA link and not the HomeTown Ticketing website. The same first come, first serve practice will remain in place for football games for the rest of the season.

Saturday 10/24 - Final Band Festival INFO
On Saturday we will wear our full uniform with WHITE BIBBERS/PANTS. Students need to wear white long socks. Please make sure your child is wearing lighter colored shorts under their white pants. Brighter colors can be seen though the white pants. Make sure this is not an issue. Gloves and plumes will be issued prior to our performances. Uniforms will stay with families after this performance for a potential (weather permitting) "game in full uniform" on 10/30.
We will be using Hometown Ticketing for this event. Purchase your tickets below using your student's id number.
