This past weekend was a simply fantastic. One of my favorite days of the year is the RMHC charity fundraiser. In 2 hours we managed to raise nearly $900 for the Ronald McDonald House on Parsons Ave. It is heartwarming to know that our students put so much joy, energy and time into helping others.
Playoff game #1
This will be our last performance of the halftime show at football games. If we win and have a second home game we will get into doing show band activities.
The band will wear their hats and purple pants with gloves on Friday. (don't forget black socks)

As weather gets colder it is imperative that parents are communicating with their children at the end of games and contests to be picked up. I will not allow my staff or myself to stay inside the building with single individuals, nor will we put them in our vehicles to transport them home for you. You may notice that when kids are left behind I ask them to exit the building and wait on the hill for pick-up. I will watch over them from a distance in my enclosed car. This is fine in the early fall when it is warm, but as temps drop parents need to be more concerned with picking-up in a timely fashion.
This Saturday is the final Contest of the year. Not all bands earn the privilege of going to State Marching Band Finals. We perform at 8pm. The Marching Tigers are one of many bands Specific information regarding state contest sites, prices and parking can be found here:
