THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK THIS MARCHING SEASON!!! You did it band! We've finished our competition season and what a finale it was. All of your hard work since May paid off in a huge way at the Deep South Marching Band Competition. The Mighty Black & Gold earned straight superiors for the 3rd time this season. On top of that, our percussion earned best in class. The Colorguard earned overall 4th place and the band as a whole earned overall 3rd. All of this on the coldest day of marching season so far and a tire blowout on bus 4 en route. Great stories had by all! Good job band!
This Friday is our last football game. The itinerary is below. Parents, if you would like to help chaperone for this, please sign up using the link below.

The band will be performing at a couple parades on Tuesday, Both of these parades are during school. Please see the itinerary below. The T.R. Jackson parade is only for Leadership and some others that I have talked to. The Rhodes ES parade is for all of the marching band. Please wear show shirt and blue jeans/blue jean shorts.
The knife fundraiser will be distributed this week. Please be ready to get this to your customers ASAP.
Finally, please be aware that the next trip payment of $200 is due this Friday. It is vital that the trip payments are up to date as we are in the process of booking rooms and if payments aren't up to date, you may loose your spot on the trip. Remember, we are having to work with strict deadlines with the cruise because we are working through Carnival
That's it for this week. I hope everyone has a spectacular week!
