Well after a very weird week with lots of weather oddities, we made it through Friday night unfazed. I am very proud of what you did on the field after not having a single rehearsal over the week. Parents I want to thank you for all of those that volunteered at the concessions or chaperoning as well. Your hard work definitely does not go unnoticed!
This week is one of the busiest weeks for the Mighty Black & Gold! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Homecoming Week!! You will see the schedule below all of the performances and rehearsals that we will be giving throughout the week. Please make sure you wear the appropriate uniform for each day and you are up to date on all of your class work.
HC Week Uniforms:
Tuesday - Escapades - Show Shirt & Blue Jeans/Blue Jean Shorts
Thursday - Pep Rally - Full Uniform Minus Helmets
Friday - HC Parade - Summer Uniform

I have attached the school dress-up days for students to have in case you would like to dress up on those days during school.

The Game this Friday will be very busy with Homecoming events. On top of that, we will be honored with hosting the Hobbs MS Band! We will also be hosting our Alumni during the 2nd half. Get ready for a fabulous and fun night!!
This week, we will also have our first meat sticking of the year. This will take place on Wednesday AFTER SCHOOL at 1pm. Wednesday is also a half-day so we will get a little earlier start than normal. All students must attend this meat sticking. Remember, the sell of these shishkabobs has helped to buy 2 band trucks, uniforms, and new instruments over the years, so please make all efforts to attend.
We are also making preparations for the Blackwater Classic on October 6th. We will talk extensively at the BPA meeting next Tuesday. You can help now by signing up to bring items to our world famous hospitality room!! Please CLICK HERE to sign-up to bring various items to the room. The hospitality room is kinda like a break room for the judges as well as the various band staffs we will host that day.
Parents, please be aware that the September BPA Meeting has been rescheduled to Tuesday, September 18th at 7pm due to Escapades this Tuesday.
Finally, I have placed the order for the parent and others show shirts. I am hoping these will be delivered this week. Remember these are going to be cotton NOT dry-fit.
That is all for this week! I hope you have a bodacious week!
