Tuesday night Practice This Week!
August 23 the Marching Band rehearsal will be at the High School NOT the football field as there are no lines on the regular football field. Normally, We have our Tuesday night Marching Band rehearsals every Tuesday night from now until the end of September from 6:30-9 at the Football Field.
The Marching Band will be performing this Friday at the home football game!
September 1st Home Football Game Added To Schedule
Next week on Thursday, September 1 we DO have a home football game. The Band will be marching at the Varisty Gmae which will actually be starting later than normal as this is a double header with the JV team playing right before hand. JV Footbal players may not be able to march in the pre-game show as I am sure they will still be changing. I do expect them to be in the stands as soon as possible, in their band uniforms.
This means we actually have 5 football games at home this year.
