  1. Thank you all so much for your flexibility and hard work.  It was a painful call to have to cancel our trip to Sparta on Wednesday.  I was excited to share our show again and get more feedback from adjudicators, many of whom were the same adjudicators that awarded us with straight Division One ratings at Cedar Springs.

  1. This coming Friday is our final regular season home football game and Senior Night!

    1. *NEW THIS YEAR*  Parents of seniors and seniors, we will be part of the pre-game recognition ceremony along with the football players and cheerleaders.  Parents, please report to the north end of the track no later than 6:15pm and your senior will meet you there. We will announce “SeniorName, Son/Daughter of ParentName(s)” and you will walk north to south along the west side of the track.  Please reply with the names of the parents who will be walking their senior down the track so I can include it in the announcement.

    2. We will be performing a special post-game show honoring our seniors class, and parents of seniors will be invited to the track for a photo with their child after senior fall-out.  First year members–you may want to have a gift or card for your senior buddy.

  1. The Fall Band Spectacular will be on Tuesday 23 October.  This performance features both the marching band and the combined 7th/8th grade bands.  The performance begins at 7:00pm, but marching band will report at 4:30 to change into uniforms for pictures at 5:00.  All students are required to report for the photos, as we start with a group photo.

  1. Speaking of pictures, photo envelopes from Radium will be available later this week for those parents wishing to place an order.  Checks should be made payable to “Radium Photo” (not the band), and should be turned in on 10/23 when the pictures are shot.
