Spirit Wear / This Week / Paulding Meadows


Hi Everyone!

This week should be a fantastic week in the life of the band.  Here's what you need to know:

1 - Spirit Wear is back on sale through Charms until September 10th!  

2 - This Friday we are HOME vs Alexander.  Students should be in uniform no later than 6:00 PM.

3 - This Saturday, September 9th, the marching band performs at Paulding Meadows.  Our performance time is 9:45 AM.  Students should be to Earl Duncan Park no later than 8:30 AM.  For those who are new to Paulding Meadows, traffic in the morning can really be an issue.  All members of the band must use the Northside Elementary School entrance Saturday morning for the performance. Please plan on arriving EARLY so that your child is not LATE.  For those parents who are not working with the Band for Paulding Meadows, tickets are $3 per person.  Students are wearing their CASUAL uniform for our Paulding Meadows performance.  If anyone stops you at the Northside Elementary School entrance, just let them know that your child is performing in the band.  They will then direct you to the proper location to meet us. 

4 - After the Paulding Meadows performance, we have been presented with an opportunity to do another pep rally at Sam's Club in Hiram.  Sam's has volunteered to feed our students (hamburgers and hot dogs) and make a donation to the band program for their participation in the pep rally.  Our plan is, after our performance at Paulding Meadows, to meet all students who are willing and able at Sam's Club in Hiram to do another quick pep rally.  We anticipate this pep rally starting close to 11:30 on Saturday morning.  Students and parents who have volunteered to work at Paulding Meadows will be asked to stay and work at Paulding Meadows.  We absolutely understand that this is a last minute addition to Saturday's plans, and understand if you have previous commitments.  Please have your student communicate with us if they cannot attend the pep rally at Sam's Club.  

5 - We do still need Pepsi products for Paulding Meadows.  Our understanding is that Publix has them on sale right now: Buy 2, Get 2 Free.

FYI - Student and Parent Volunteers for Paulding Meadows must wear closed toe shoes and a hat (we can also provide a hair net).  We do have tickets for those who are working Paulding Meadows, and those will go home with students this week.  The only people who will need a ticket are those who are leaving on Paulding Meadows Saturday after our performance and coming back later, or anyone working on Sunday.  

Thank you for all you do!
