First an foremost, we would like to thank all of our military families on this Memorial Day!!! Words cannot describe our appreciation for your sacrifices that you have made in order for all of us to continue to freely do what we do on a daily basis. On this day we remember that "All gave some, and some gave all". THANK YOU.
Can you believe this is the last week of school? Holy Cannoli! Didn't we just start Rookie Camp 2017?
The biggest happening this week is of course graduation this Tuesday at 8pm in the MHS Stadium. Parents, if you would like to help sell water, please CLICK HERE and sign up to help. Water sales begin at 6pm.
The BPA will be selling concessions at the Bands on Blackwater this Friday. If you would like to help out, please CLICK HERE.
Rookie Camp is just around the corner. Remember, we will go 8am to 3pm Monday through Thursday with lunch Noon to 1pm. The cafeteria will be providing free lunch this summer beginning the week of Rookie Camp. Make sure you eat breakfast before you arrive and drink plenty of fluids throughout the week. Also, wear cool/comfortable clothes as we will be outside the majority of the week.
I want to remind all returning members that uniform fittings will take place the Tuesday and Wednesday of Rookie Camp. If you need any new uniform part, you will need to go to one of these fittings. They will begin at 3pm at the end of camp on those days. These are also the days that the new members will get fitted.
New parents, please make plans to attend the NEW PARENT MEETING on Monday June 4th at 6:30pm. We will go over a ton of info about the Mighty Black & Gold at this meeting and you don't want to miss any of this.
I have posted the DCI trip and Band Trip info that we handed out at the Down-beat rehearsal on our website. Please click the following links to receive the information:

I have also attached the Lumpia Fundraiser form for you just in case it got misplaced. Use as needed.
Finally, this will be the last weekly update that includes the class of 2018. We could not be more proud of these 41 students! These young adults have gone above and beyond over their 4 years at MHS and in this band family. I hope all of you know that wherever you go on this planet, you will always have a home in the Mighty Black & Gold. It is so hard to see a part of our family leave us, but we know it is for the best. You are about to do some extraordinary things and we can't wait to see all of it! Make a positive impact on this world guys and gals! We love you and will always be here for you!
I hope everyone had a fantastic week.
