I hope this email finds you doing well!
Game this Friday - This Friday we will host Mosley HS. Please see the itinerary below. Students will wear band shirts and jeans until further notice. We will be confirming throughout the week if students have ordered bibbers and shoes. We are in need of help at both the concession stand and chaperoning. Please see the links below to sign up directly.

Senior Night - It is also the Band/ROTC senior night. Seniors will need to wear their full band uniforms except for helmets. All senior escorts will need to be ready in the north end zone by 6:55. As soon as the band marches in, seniors will break off and find you. We will have them in alphabetical order by last name. Students will know in advance what yard line they will go to. You will walk straight down the front hash. As soon as your name is announced, you will meet the staff at the numbers in between the front sideline and the hash.
Volunteer Meat Sticking - This Tuesday the BPA will have a volunteer meat sticking in the cafeteria at 6pm. This is open to parents and students as well as anyone else who would like to help. Please click the following link to sign-up for this opportunity.

Thursday Game - We have made the decision not to perform at the last remaining JV/Freshmen game this Thursday.
Uniforms - At this point all of our new and returning wind and percussion members should have been fitted for their uniforms. All new and non marching members received a form with directions on how to order the band bibbers and shoes. Returning members that needed new bibbers and shoes also received the form. This form has clickable links that will take you to the exact items that you will need to purchase. You can CLICK HERE to access the form. All you have to do is select the appropriate size from the drop down boxes on those websites, then go through the checkout process. Students should have received these sizes on the form at the fittings. Please place your orders ASAP. If you have any questions, please email me. We are hoping to be in full uniform by this Friday, however, this is contingent on everyone ordering their bibbers and shoes.
BPA Sweet Season Farms - Students and parents are welcome to come out and help the BPA at the Sweet Season Farms events for the next several weekends. Every Saturday and Sunday, the BPA will be selling concessions at Sweet Season Farms. Students may earn volunteer hours for these events. Everyone will need to sign up using the yellow helping hand symbol on the events. Below, you can sign up directly for the event this Saturday and Sunday
