Dear Band Parent/Band Member,
On Friday, September 21st, we will be leaving for Platte to participate in the Missouri Valley Marching Festival. We will first be marching in the parade as an exhibition band and then later that morning the featured entertainment at the final awards ceremony. We will be performing our halftime show after we are done marching in the parade. This will prove to be very valuable as we don't have another home football game performance before we compete in Marshall! Below is a schedule of events for that day. I also wanted to include a checklist of items that each student will need to bring (please check off that morning before you come to school):
Band T-Shirt ___________
LONG Black Socks ___________
Marching Shoes ___________
We will have the jackets, pants and plumes in the trailer to hand out once we get there.
