Thank you for an awesome weekend. We had a great night at Grove City. Qualifying for SMBF yet again as well as finishing 3rd overall and 2nd in music. We will continue to mold and polish this show into something really special!
This week is Homecoming week, due to this fact we will not be performing our competition show, rather we will be performing for the homecoming presentation. This will result in less parent help needed as we will be bringing limited percussion and no props or sound equipment.
We will be wearing our purple uniform this Friday. Please make sure your students are wearing the correct uniform socks. Student hair is becoming increasingly a struggle. Students with long hair need to make a bun or ponytail that sits on top of their heads and doesn't push the uniform hats back on their head. This creates a "flat plume". Flat plumes are not uniform.

I have requested October 28th at Hilliard Bradley for our first choice and second choice. I would plan on making sure this date is completely clear of conflicts. Once we have an assigned time and date I will pass the information on to our booster club!
Because of homecoming we will NOT be performing our competition show. We have to do a homecoming activity. This makes for an easy week for parent volunteers. Once I talk with our exact needs I will have Mr Horton send out an email with the nurse and volunteer list for this Friday.
