Welcome to the busiest part of the marching season. There are A LOT of events taking place over the next several weeks. Please make sure you read through everything carefully and stay up to date. I have put the full schedule for this week as well as next week so you know exactly when and wear to be.
Parents, we DESPERATLY need your help at the Blackwater Classic. If we do not fill all spots in the BPA concessions as well as the various other areas around campus, this event will not run smoothly and we may not be able to host this in the future. Thank you to all of the parents that have already signed up!
Blackwater Classic Concession Sales - CLICK HERE to sign up or click the yellow helping hand symbol on the event on the calendar. If the link asks for a password, type miltonhsband
Blackwater Classic Other areas - CLICK HERE to sign-up for an area during the event. These area range and scope around campus and have parents that have already been designated to be in charge with the exception of a couple areas. If the link asks for a password, type miltonhsband. We desperately need more equipment transporters along with trailers.
BC Hospitality Room - Amongst the many aspects and areas we need help with for Blackwater Classic, we also need donations for the judges/directors hospitality room area. This is yet another great opportunity for parents to "plug in" to the MHS Band program. All you have to do is follow the link below and select the slot. Food must be dropped off to the culinary classroom by 11am on October 2nd. Again, without your help, this event will not run smoothly. Please do not put in your contact info on this website as we have found that someone was sending spam calls to individuals.
The coordinator last name is Justice
The password is 5771
Tuesday Rehearsal - Students, the rehearsal this Tuesday night will be in the football stadium. Please make sure you arrive earlier so you can be over to the stadium and start at 6pm.
Washington Game - This Friday, we play Washing HS away. We are asking that students wear this year's band shirt on Saturday. Because of this, you can wear and band shirt or black shirt for the game.
Student Blackwater Classic info - The itinerary is below. Students should plan to eat at the concessions that night. Students are expected to be at the stadium to watch and support bands throughout the evening beginning at 3:15. Please make sure you wear this year's band shirt. Symphonic Band plus others will perform the national anthem at 3:30 and will need to be in the band room in uniform at 3pm.
FBA and HC Dance - You will see in the itinerary below that we will send students planning to participate in the HC dance on that day back early. That bus will leave around 3:30.
