I hope you have enjoyed this three day weekend! I would like to send out a HUGE THANK YOU from the Mighty Black & Gold to all of our military families and service men/women who have fought, are fighting, and will fight for EVERYTHING that we FREELY enjoy!! Today isn't just about having a day off, but remembering the sacrifices you have made and will make so we can live in the greatest country in the world and do this band thing! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
Can you believe it's the last week of school? Wasn't August just last week?? It is so incredible how the year flies by. We must've had A LOT of fun this year. We only have two big events this week for everybody. First, Graduation is Tuesday night at 8pm at MHS. I encourage all of us to attend this as this is the official last day for our seniors :*-( We are very proud of each and every one of you too!
We will also have our second rehearsal of the new season this Thursday 6pm-8pm. This is for ALL returning/new members of the Mighty Black & Gold. For this rehearsal, please wear comfortable shoes as we will probably be going outside.
Speaking of wearing comfortable shoes, this year, we are going to see how everyone handles the new rehearsal uniform policy. You may wear whatever is going to keep you cool for the marching rehearsals as long as everyone wears proper marching shoes. This means tennis shoes!
Rookie Camp is next week. ALL NEW MEMBERS MUST ATTEND THIS CAMP! Returning members are invited to attend as well. Returning members, for whichever day you do attend, you must stay the entirety of that day's camp.
We will have uniform fittings on Tuesday and Wednesday of Rookie camp at the end of the camp for those days. Rookies will get fitted for the entire uniform. Returning members, if you need anything altered/ordered for your uniforms, these are the days to take care of this!
Finally, CLICK HERE for a copy of the General info packet for everybody which includes the summer calendar, media pages including charms office access and remind, and fair share info. When you have time, please look this over. We will have a NEW PARENT meeting at 6:30pm on June 5th where we will go over all of this info and some.
