We now have our entire show for the 2014-15 year on the field!! Come join us this Friday at the Milton High School vs Pensacola High School football game at MHS for the debut of our full show, "Heroes Among Us". Hobbs Middle School will also be joining us for the march-in and in the stands. Please come support all of these wonderful students!
We have ordered the show shirts for the students, now I need the adult/other sizes for the second order. If you would like a shirt for yourself or family members, please let me know by this coming Thursday, September 8th, by the end of the school day. I need to know who your child is in the band and what sizes you will need. DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR CHILD'S SIZE THAT IS IN THE BAND. I only need your size as well as any other family member's size. They are $10 a piece. Please email me back or let me know at the BPA meeting on Tuesday night at 7pm. The picture that will be on the back of the shirt is shown. The shirt itself is black with the band logo on the left breast. These are not the parent polo shirts.
Saturday, September 6th is the trip to the Florida State University for their band day! The itinerary is as followed:
10:45am CT – Meet/Depart from MHS Band Hall
3:15pm EST – Lunch @ Tally Mall
4:45pm EST – Arrive @ FSU

We are going to be placing an order to Arrow Embroidery for the gold parent polo shirts soon. They are $37 per shirt. In case you have not seen what they look like, they are just like the student's polos except they are gold with white trim. There is a picture of one on the form. The band emblem will be embroidered on the left breast and your name along with whatever you want below that on the right breast. Usually people have "John doe's mom or dad" or "tuba mom" or something like that. The forms and money need to be turned in together by the next band parent association meeting which is Tuesday, September 9th at 7pm. If you would like to send it in earlier, you may send it with your child and put it in and envelope and put it in the box. You can download and print the form at the following link: BAND PARENT POLO FORM
