I'll start my FYI with a sincere apology. Scoring auditions and sorting through schedule changes with the main office took up quite a bit of time. I do realize this weekly document is critical for family planning and I apologize for being so tardy.
This Friday the band will travel to St. Francis DeSales to play Gahanna in round 3 of the Playoffs.
Full purple uniforms and raincoats. No plumes but we will bring hats. Bring gloves! (but we will not be passing out new gloves. Bring an old pair) Since this is our first rainy game, I'll take the time to remind everyone that raincoats are NOT assigned. Students must use the smallest size raincoat that fits them. Larger raincoats do not mean warmer! **The uniform moms and staff are not responsible for items left in the raincoat pockets. Clean out pockets before you HANG YOUR RAINCOAT CORRECTLY AT THE END OF THE NIGHT!**
