Congratulations on finishing another football season! We still have a few marching events left to end marching season. We will now start making the full transition to concert season.
Playground Music Step-up Night - This Tuesday is the Playground Music instrument step-up night. This is for all wind players interested in purchasing or renting an upgraded version of your instrument. Students will need to sign-up for a one-on-one with the sales team from Playground. CLICK HERE for more info.
Veteran's Day Parade - This Saturday, we will be celebrating all of our past, present, and future veterans with a parade. The itinerary is below. We will hand out plumes at the band hall and collect at my (Mr. Schultz's) truck at the end of the parade. The parade route begins at the anchor at MHS, goes south on Stewart Street, left down Berryhill Road, right on Willing Street in downtown Milton, and ends at Veteran's Memorial. Students will need to have a ride from Veteran's Memorial at the end of the parade. Remember to bring instruments back on Monday. Everyone is welcome to attend the ceremony after the parade put on by the VA.
All-State - A huge congratulations to Josiah Hall s for making the All-State Band and Jayden Brothers for making the All-State Chorus!! They will be representing Milton High School and Santa Rosa County in January at the FMEA Convention.
Concert Season - As we move to full-on concert season, we will be taking our big marching ensemble and splitting that into multiple smaller ensembles. Each of these ensembles will have their own afterschool rehearsals. Students are required to attend all rehearsals and performances associated with their ensemble. Make sure you look through the calendar carefully to see when these rehearsals and performances will take place.
All-County Auditions - This Thursday, the high school all-county auditions will take place at Milton High School. A schedule will be posted by Monday. Students, WE NEED YOUR HELP with proctoring rooms that evening. Sign-ups have been posted on the locker room door. Students can receive volunteer hours for this. Please Please Please help us out. These auditions run smoothly only because of the students that help. Again, students can receive volunteer hours for these.
Sweet Seasons - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of the parents and students that volunteered to work the BPA concessions at Sweet Seasons Farm over the past month! Because of you, we are able to supply our students with the best equipment possible.
New Uniform Debut - We have scheduled a new uniform debut performance for Wednesday, November 15th at 5:30 in the football stadium. Please make plans to attend. This is for ALL MHS Band students, not just marching band.
Wrapping Paper - We are in need of wrapping paper of any kind. We also need lots of scotch tape. If you have any partially used rolls laying around, we'll take them. Please consider donating. We will need these by November 13th.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
