students and Parents,

Our next pep rally and game will be this Friday, October 14th.  I am going to give you all the information concerning these events in this email.  If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Students will need to bring these items in their band bag to school with them on Friday:
*Band Travel Uniform – shirt, shorts, black socks and marching shoes.  You will need to wear your band shirt to school because you will need to have it on for the pep rally.
*Water Jug – We will have ice available that afternoon to use in the water jugs.  Please make sure the water jug has been washed properly with hot, soapy water before you use it again this Friday.
Pep Rally – 9:00 am in the main gym.  You will be released from rehearsal to go to the gym at 8:50am
.  You must wear your band travel shirt or the “pink out” shirt for this pep rally.  Get to the gym as quickly as possible with your lyre and flip folder.
Game – Meet at 5:00 pm at the stadium,in travel uniform,to prep for the game. We will practice some music and drill, get into full uniform and line up to march into the stadium. Game starts at 7:30pm
