Welcome Back!
It is exciting to start another year with the Marching Warriors. Of course, we've already spent a lot of time together, but now the school year is beginning and it's time to get down to business! (click to read the rest)
Our first activity is Warrior Night this coming Monday, August 25. Free food begins at 6:00 pm in the Commons and then we will perform the fight song from the stage at approximately 6:30. Following that, band students are dismissed (some may need to stay for athletic activities). Students should wear their summer uniform shirt, khaki shorts or blue jeans and tennis shoes.
Our first home football game is Thursday, August 28. The band will rehearse outside from 3:30 - 5:30 PM and then take a break for dinner (more on this below). At 6:30 we will line up and prepare to go to the stadium! Students must wear their SUMMER UNIFORM (including khaki shorts) but can bring blue jeans to change into after pre-game if they wish. We are not marching halftime for this halftime performance, only standing and playing. The band stays until the end of the game which usually ends by 10:00 pm.
Mrs. Miller has volunteered to coordinate a tailgate supper for band families and students during our dinner break from 5:30 - 6:15. She is looking for parent volunteers and financial donors to assist. Please call/text Ethel at 989-313-3006 or email at if you are willing to help! Everyone is invited! please plan to attend.
Finally - our first Tuesday night rehearsal is September 2 from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. This is a DRESS PROUD rehearsal - students must wear their FALL UNIFORM to the rehearsal but will be allowed to change back to normal clothes (or dress in the theme! - SECTION COLOR NIGHT!) after inspection. Students must have their pants hemmed, clean shoes and gloves and BROWN SOCKS!
As always, if you have conflicts with attendance for any band activity, please contact Mr. Heydenburg immediately!
See you soon! - H
