Here are some important upcoming events for the SHHS Band:
Homecoming is this Friday and we will be very busy. We will have an after school rehearsal and we will feed the kids dinner before the Homecoming Parade. The 8th graders will be with us for dinner and the game. Students will need to bring their uniforms that morning so they can change that afternoon. Here is an itinerary of the evening:
2 pm – Pep Rally
3 – 4:45 pm – rehearsal in the stadium with the 8th graders
5 pm – dinner
6:15 pm – HC Parade
7:15 pm – pre-game with the 8th graders
7:30 pm – kick-off
The Chicago trip rooming list is due by the end of the week. Make sure all students sign up for a room by Friday.
Our Saturday rehearsal will be this Saturday (Sept. 20) from 9 am – 1 pm. We will not have a lunch break. Please be sure the kids eat a good breakfast and bring plenty of water/Gatorade.
We have been having issues with kids drinking after one another during our water breaks. Please have your own personal container for each practice; we don’t want the entire band getting strep throat!
Pancake Breakfast donations are due next Wednesday. Make sure when you turn in your money to include the ticket tally sheet so we can know how many pancakes to make that morning.
We are still in need of student volunteers to help serve. Student can sign up in the band room – they will receive community service hours for their efforts.

- September 27 – Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser
- October 3 – Football at home vs Tenn High (Band Alumni Night)
- October 4 – First competition, Tenn High School (Bristol, TN)
