Information for Saturday

Good Morning,

I wanted to provide more information for Saturday at MB Stadium.  A few things to keep in mind:

1 - MB Stadium does have a CLEAR BAG policy.  This policy will be enforced on Saturday.  Please see their website for more information:  http://mercedesbenzstadium.com/clear-bag-policy/

2 - Spectators will have to pay to park.  We would encourage you to do your research early, and have a plan before you get to the stadium.  Here is a link to information on maps and parking for the stadium: http://mercedesbenzstadium.com/parking-and-transportation/

Finally, here is another copy of the schedule for Saturday.  I have been encouraged to remind you that we are the 3rd game of the day, and our game could very well possibly start later than expected if the first two games run long. 

2:30 PM - Students arrive @ SPHS
3:00 PM - Depart SPHS for the Varsity
4:00 PM - Arrive at the Varsity, students eat
5:00 PM - Depart The Varsity for MB Stadium

Good Afternoon,

1 - We are extending rehearsal on Thursday, October 5th until 7:00 PM.

2 - The school has a small allotment of tickets for $15 for the Mays game in MB Stadium (the regular ticket price is $22).  Students in the band will be able to purchase the $15 pre-sale tickets for our game vs. Mays High School during band class on Monday, October 9th.  Students will be able to purchase a maximum of 2 tickets at $15 per ticket.  These tickets will only be on sale through the band on Monday the 9th.  To be clear: students will only be able to purchase 2 tickets each on Monday the 9th, and Monday is the only day they will have the opportunity to purchase those tickets through the band.

Homecoming Parade Next Tuesday, October 10th

Hi Everyone!

Next Tuesday, October 10th, is our Homecoming Parade!  Our Homecoming Parade is an awesome South Paulding High School Tradition.  For those that are new to SPHS, the parade route begins at Dallas Elementary and ends at the Old Dallas Courthouse, followed by a pep rally at the First Baptist Church.  Here's the schedule:

     5:15 Students Report to Dallas Elementary School Parking Lot
     6:00 Parade Begins
     6:45 Parade and Pep Rally Ends - Parents should pick up students near the old Dallas Courthouse / First Baptist Church Area.

***Students will wear their casual uniform.

PRO TIP - Drop your children off at Dallas Elementary and park at the old Dallas Courthouse.  Set up to watch near the end of the parade.  That way, when the parade is over, you're not walking the whole parade route back to your car.  We will march through downtown Dallas.  The end of the parade is the old Courthouse.  From there, we will loop back to the 1st Baptist Church for the Community Pep-Rally.  

Need Directions to Dallas Elementary?  Here's the address:
Dallas Elementary School, 520 Hardee St, Dallas, GA 30132
