Not so much of a busy week this week, however, there are a few events you need to be aware of.
First, the 3rd annual Bring the Heat spirit night and jalapeno eating contest is this Tuesday starting at 6pm at the Whataburger in Pea Ridge. Come on out for a night of fun as our battery battles against Pace's battery and we see who has the most school spirit all culminating to the jalapeno eating contest between some very familiar faces :-). The school with the highest attendance will get a monetary donation from Whataburger. All you have to do is show up, get a free ticket on site, and stick around for the giveaways. You don't pay for a thing as everything except for food and drinks is free.
Yankee Candle Fundraiser is Due on Tuesday!!
We return to rehearsals this Thursday to prepare for the game on Friday. This is what we call the Halloween rehearsal as students may wear costumes to the rehearsal. Please make sure you can still march and play in your costume.
Friday, before the game and during the school day, we will have two book character parades. The first one only involves the leadership as well as others that I will ask to attend to fill out parts and is at T.R. Jackson at 9:45. The second is at Rhodes Elementary at 11:30 and involves the entire Marching Band. Uniform for these will be show shirts and marching shoes.
Finally, the Jazz band will be in performance in our own parade this Saturday at the new park in Bagdad as part of the "Beaches to Woodlands" festivities. We will meet at 1:30 and march around the track at 2pm.
