It's finally here!! The 2015 preview show will take place this Thursday, July 30th at 7pm at the MHS band practice field. The students have been working very hard over the past two weeks putting part of our show on the field. It has definitely been a hot but productive band camp. Please come out and see the 2015 Mighty Black & Gold in performance for the first time. After the show, the band parent association along with the quaterback club will serve hamburgers and hot dogs along with all the fixins. Tell all your firends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and everyone else. You do not want to miss this!
We had another very successful....and hot....day for the annual MHS Band Carwash! We ended up washing a grand total of 257 vehicles and earning $1,308 in donations. Thank you so much for all of your help. Thank you students for your hard work in getting the job done and thank you parents for volunteering your time and helping us make this event a success. Click HERE for a copy of the letter to give to your pledgers that includes the break down of vehicles per site as well as a guide to use to figure out how much to they owe you. Please have all money turned in to the office by Thursday, July 16th. Thank you very much once again

Again, this is a live show but streamed live at the theater. More information can be found by clicking HERE.
Click HERE to get a copy of the pledge sheet for the car wash-a-thon the band will be hosting around the Milton area on Saturday, July 11th. There will be 6 locations around Milton. The Locations are:
(1) Circle K at Hwy 90 & Ward Basin Rd
(2) Milton High School on Stewart Street
(3) Advanced Auto Parts on Dogwood Drive
(4) Whiting Furniture on Hwy. 90
(5) Christian Life Church on Avalon Blvd

The car wash is one of the biggest fundraisers we have and is attendance is required. Past students have been able to pay band fair share fees in full from this one fundraiser. The more pledges you get, the more money you make. Our gola is to wash as many cars as possible. If you don't get pledges, you are washing cars for free....and that's no fun. All the info you will need is at the top of the pledge sheet. See you in July!
Okay guys and gals, You can access the chair/ band placement for the 2015-16 school year by clicking HERE.
I want to make it very clear that ALL students on this list ARE members of the marching band with the exception of a few that are doing concert instruments only! We have three concert bands in which the students are placed for the school year. The top band is Symphonic band, then Concert band, then Panther.band. You will see the bands notated on the list. We are very pleased with each and every one of you and look forward to hearing some great things from the marching band as well as the three concert bands. Thank you and we look forward to seeing all of you in July! Guard and percussion and drum majors, have fun at your camps!
Rookies, Mr. Weaver and I are extremely proud of your hard work this week! Let's keep this momentum going throughout the year! Together We Are The Mighty Black & Gold!!
Tomorrow, Thursday, we will be fitting all new wind and percussion members for uniforms. We will begin fittings at around 3pm and finish by 5pm. If any returning members would like to get resized for a new uniform or would like to order new uniform parts including polo shirts or anything else, please come to the fitting and put your name down for that or those parts. Again, this is only for wind and percussion. Colorguard will have a separate uniform fitting date.
