3.  Families–you should have received an e-mail this morning from the school district.  This e-mail contained a lot of important information if you are planning on attending the game (ticket info, timeline, prohibited items, etc.).  If you need a copy re-sent to you, please let me know and I can forward it to you.


4.  All students and adults volunteering with the band MUST have a waiver form on file.  Students will receive their copy today, and it MUST be signed by a parent/guardian and returned tomorrow.  Adult volunteers can fill one out on Friday morning.


5. We will be playing the National Anthem and Fight Song at the Pep Assembly on Wednesday.  Please make sure to have your marching instrument here.


6.  Drumline members–we are asking you to be an important part of the team bus send-off on Thursday morning.  You will meet Lucas at the band barn at 10:15am, for a 10:30 send-off on Seminole. It will just entail playing a few cadences as the buses roll down Seminole.


6. Bus signups for the trip will take place today.  Students who have not signed up will be assigned to a bus.  Sign up only yourself please.
