Pep Rally - This Thursday is the first MHS pep rally of the year! We will be on an alternate class schedule that day. Students will need to meet in the band room at 1:40 to prepare. Please wear summer uniform, or even better, I encourage everyone to dress the theme. For this pep rally, it is Rock Out Orange Beach.
Game Friday - This Friday is also our first game of the season. This is at Orange Beach HS, AL. We will be feeding the band box Chik-Fil-A dinners after school. Students may bring their own meals if you wish, but every student will get a box dinner. The BPA will be providing snack bags for the trip back. It will take approximately 1.5 hours to get to the school and the same back. Students MUST ride the bust to Orange Beach, however, they may check out when we march out at the buses and ride back with parents. See Checkout procedures below. We will be wearing summer uniforms for this game. Call time is 4:15 and we will leave at 4:30. We will load the trucks during band classes.
Checkout procedures for Away events - Students MUST ride the bus to any away event. If parents wish to have their child ride back with them, the student will need to turn in a letter of permission to the directors or the head chaperon, Rebecca Justice, before departure. Students may check out once the band has marched back to the truck/buses at the end of the game, NOT BEFORE. We will dismiss at the trucks and start loading. At that point, the student and their ride will need to checkout with Rebecca Justice at BUS 1. The student and the parent must meet at bus 1 with their child. Remember, we are responsible for your kiddos until they have either checked out or have returned on the bus to the school.
Uniforms - Wind and Percussion students will be receiving their uniforms this Tuesday after rehearsal. This does include bibbers and helmets. Please make sure you try everything on to see if they fit. Guard should be receiving their uniforms later this week or the beginning of next week. We will be in full uniform for the first Niceville game, the first game in September.
BPA Yardsale - The BPA is planning a yardsale on September 9th at Ollie's parking lot. We are accepting donations of items to sell. Please bring those to the band room this Saturday at 9am. This is a great time to clean out those closets.
Band Trip - If you are looking for the info for the band trip, please CLICK HERE to get everything you need from our website. Remember, the $250 deposit per person is due on September 1st.
Lumpia Fundraiser - We have kicked off the fall lumpia fundraiser. This lumpia is made by our own BPA Lumpia Committee and has received rave reviews everywhere it's been sold. CLICK HERE for the order form. You will see that each bag is $15. Students will profit $5 per bag sold. We have pork, beef, chick, and veggie. 12 rolls per bag. Don't forget to ask teachers and school staff if they would like to buy. Order forms are due on Monday, August 28th.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a marvelous week!
