Friday and Saturday Information


All students will stay after school on Friday for our away game to North Paulding. In an effort to be sure that all of our students will be fed since we had an incident at our last home game with the concession stand running out of food we will be providing the students with dinner before we depart for NPHS. Dinner will be served around 4:00PM and the students need to be in uniform by 5:00PM. The busses will depart for NPHS at 5:30PM. We are accepting donations for the meal on Friday. If you would like to make a donation to help offset the cost of the meal, please place the donation in the red box. You are welcome to do it anonymously or in an envelope with your name on it. A donation is not required, but it will help offset the cost of the meal since these meals were not planned in the meal fee at the beginning of the year. The students will receive a Chick-fil-a sandwich, bag of chips, and a bottled water for dinner.


Saturday the report time is 1:00PM in Casual Uniform. I know that we have many students taking the SAT.  I have asked them to please communicate ETA with me so that we can work with them as much as possible.  I do not want them hurrying back causing unsafe conditions or stressing over the airshow and not do well on the test.  I hope they do their best and take their time getting back.

 The rest of the day will go approximately as follows:

1:30PM band departs SPHS enroute to the airport
2:00PM band arrives at airport, unloads band trailer 
3:00PM playing of the National Anthem
3:30PM band students enjoy the airshow - must be in groups of at least 4 students.
5:00PM band reports back to staging area
6:00PM performance  for recognition of our veterans
7:00PM students enjoy the airshow
before fireworks (around 9:00PM?) - band students report together to enjoy the fireworks (15 minute display) together and call roll before loading busses.

immediately following fireworks - the band is the first shuttle out - headed back to SPHS.  

?10:30PM back at SPHS? I am still working on this time frame because the exact start of the fireworks has not been disclosed.  I do know that the night flying portion starts at 7:00PM.  

Students will be allowed to check out after our performance at 6:00pm by their parents. We will follow the same procedures as we follow for checking out from away games.   If the parents are attending the airshow then checking out will be an easier process.  Due to limited parking, if you are not attending the airshow but would like to check out your child then you may need to ride a shuttle into the airport, check out your child, and then ride back to your car together.   More information on parking can be found here:

This is going to be a great opportunity for our students to give back to our community by performing a service and recognizing the sacrifices that our veterans have made for our country in addition to enjoying an entertaining show full of air acrobatics.  I hope that this is another opportunity for our students to make lasting memories together.
