Way to Go, Marching Tigers!
We will be fitting ALL students Tuesday, November 2 for their dress and tuxedo that will be used for the remainder of the school year. The time will be from 12:00-4:00PM. While this is a holiday this provides use with plenty of time to fit each student. Students, if you cannot make it due to a prior conflict please let Mr. Frank know ASAP so we can get you fitted. Our first performance in this attire will be the following week for our Veterans Day assembly. It is vital that every student shows up or communicates with Mr. Frank to ensure everyone is fitted.
Our Veteran's Day Assembly is coming up on November 11 during the school day. We perform for that and will need to have 7AM rehearsals added to rehearse with the choir. 7AM Rehearsals will be on 11/9, 11/10, and 11/11.
Volunteers Needed! We are seeking Tiger Tailgate donations (drinks and desserts or monetary donations to purchase these) and Game Day Chaperones. Click HERE for a list of the sign up links.
The next Band Booster meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 9th at 7:00 PM. This is a virtual meeting and the link will be sent out on the day of the meeting. Our Band Boosters meet once a month on the second Tuesday of each month. Please join us!
