Helpful Hints:

  1. Friday is a regular school day with a rehearsal and performance right after. The students will not have a chance to “run home” to get stuff for performance. They should bring rehearsal clothes, water jug, long black socks, marching shoes and performance wear to school in the morning.
  2. Saturday morning, they should come to rehearsal with everything they need for the trip. We will leave after rehearsal and a quick lunch. We will only be gone for one night… So there shouldn’t be too much luggage, right? However, we may perform twice this weekend, so please pack accordingly and that includes shirts, shorts and long black socks.
  3. The kids will need spending money for the competition if they want to purchase t-shirts, hoodies, etc. They will also need money to cover their lunch on Sunday on the way home. Other than that, they should be good.
  4. Please remind your student that all school rules apply on the trip.
  5. Congratulate your kid for a wonderful season and acknowledge all their hard work and effort.
  6. Thanks to all the parents for their support throughout the season!

Helpful Notes for Parents:

  1. Students will remain with the group from the start of rehearsal through dismissal at the end of the day. Students may have the opportunity to leave after the truck is loaded in the morning, but MUST be back at the High School no later than 12:30pm to load the bus — and ONLY with prior approval from Mr. Stone.
  2. NO STUDENTS may leave the group and must stay on campus at each competition site! NO EXCEPTIONS!
  3. With #1 in mind, please make sure your student has the appropriate clothing and shoes for the entire day – at rehearsal, to wear under the uniform, and to return home. Students will change into uniform on the bus (in public).
  4. Students should bring a water jug and sunscreen to the morning rehearsal. Sometimes it’s pretty toasty out there!
  5. Please remember that all times listed are approximate. Sometimes things need to change depending on the circumstances of the day and we do our best to keep to a schedule so everyone is on the same page. However, things always come up including, but not limited to, the traffic situation. This is especially true this week. It’s our first time at competition this year, so we ask for your cooperation and understanding.
  6. If your student is taking the PSAT, please have them join the group whenever they are finished. Your student should also let Mr. Stone know that they are taking the PSAT.
