Dear marching band student and parent,
Okay, let’s try this again, without the hurricane! The purpose of this letter is to provide information concerning our SECOND HOME FOOTBALL GAME this Friday.
HOME FOOTBALL GAME (ATHENS VS. MIDDLE CREEK)
Friday, September 13, 2019
Report to ADHS band room 5:45pm
Warm-up in front (junior) parking area 6:00pm
Walk to staging area 6:20pm
March to stadium 6:35pm
Game begins 7:00pm
Halftime performance @7:50pm
Dismissal (at flagpole near gym entrance) @9:45pm
Students are to wear their BLUE SHOW TEE SHIRT, shorts, socks and tennis shoes. Students will need their flip folders and lyres; they should also bring a small amount of money for drinks/snacks following their performance (during 3rd quarter).
I realize that this THURSDAY will be a long day for us as we have after school rehearsal, open house/meet-the-teacher evening, and then a band booster meeting! We really need our full rehearsal on Thursday to make Friday work. Please understand that it is only on Thursdays when I see the entire marching band together during the week. So, if you are attending the open house—which starts at 6:00pm—maybe you can bring a dinner for your child and they can hang out in the band area and eat and do homework, etc. And since you are going to be here anyway, please stick around for a few extra minutes and attend our booster meeting which will begin at 7:30—right after the open house. We’ll keep it very brief and informative!
THANK YOU for all you do for our kids and our band program! I hope to see many of you at our football game Friday evening!
