We won Music Ensemble and Music Effects!
Percussion won 2nd place!
Fabulous work and effort by every member of the band!
Thank youBand Members for an awesome performance and for a great trip!
Thank you to all the families that made that trip, to those that helped with anything from pushing and pulling equipment, to chaperoning and feeding the students. This would not have been successful without you.  I know you hear it from us a lot but we really mean it... Thank You!

Practice/Game this week:

Monday:  4:30 - 7:30 (note that Monday's practice is an hour longer than normal).
Tuesday:  4:15 - 6:15 (so that our young drivers can get home safely before the Trick or Treaters come out).
Thursday:  4:30 - 7:30 (Everyone needs to be in attendance!  We need 100% of the band giving 100% effort and energy! This is the last big practice before state competition).

State Competition in Irmo, SC:

This is a big week. Next Saturday is State Competition in Irmo, what the kids have been working so hard for.  Please come and support the Band for this final competition.

We still need a few chaperones for the bus ride up and back next Saturday follow this link if you are interested: signup.com/go/XmFvTfT.

We need parents to help move the Band and PIT to and from the field since Saturday will have a preliminaries we are hoping to have 2 sets of volunteers for this.  A lot of the Band parents have Seniors and of course like all parents of Seniors, they want to watch that very last performance.

To help get this done we have created 2 sign ups for you.  The times are tenative for our needs that day.  We need at least 14 people for each shift so we really need our parents to come help.  If you are flexible with your time and willing to help the Band achieve their goal of a win at State please sign up.

Follow this link to help get the Band on and off the field: signup.com/go/hczOrxa.

Hang with us parents we are there, really we are, we just need to stick together and help the Band get through this next step in what they have been working so very hard for....STATE!
