Blurb

A big thank you to everyone who has signed up to help with concessions so far.  In case you are wondering about our stats…

We currently have about 1/3 of our spots filled for the season.  Those spots are filled by only 33 band families out of over 200 possible.  If you have not yet signed up, PLEASE consider doing so.  Even one shift from everyone goes a long way to getting everything covered.  We have games almost everyday of the week, so there is surely something that would work for everyone!  Thank you!

For our first game, it is very important that we establish a strong routine to get off to a good start for the season.  Please make sure to have all necessary uniform parts.  This is the first performance in our new uniforms and we want to look our best!  Squad leaders will have a procedure to follow with each of their squadlings ensuring details are not missed.  Lets all do our part to make it a great first game!!

Game 7:00

Pick up – Approx 9:15

New Remind Sign up!

We use the Remind App quite often for communication during marching band. Due to some changes with Remind, we have had to set up new Remind accounts.  Students and parents are encouraged to sign up to receive these notifications via text.  Please text the appropriate code for your graduation class to 81010. To clarify, these are all for marching band, concert band classes will set up once school starts.

Class of 2020 – @7463h3f

Class of 2021 – @h866ff

Class of 2022 – @f7kc3f

Class of 2023 – @mbclasso

Communication

Please make sure to continue informing us of any and all rehearsal absences.  As always, send that information to Mr. Shultz at luke_shultz@hboe.org  Remember that whenever possible please give advance notice so that we can plan accordingly.

We also have our remind 101 accounts set up.  This is a great way for us to send you quick reminders about report times and other various things.  It is not a good way for you to reach us as we do not usually receive messages back.  Email is definitely the best way to contact one of the directors.

Below is the information on how to sign up for Remind 101:

Class of 2020 – @7463h3f

Class of 2021 – @h866ff

Class of 2022 – @f7kc3f

Class of 2023 – @mbclasso

Finally, we now have Facebook and Twitter pages set up for the band!  Just search Hilliard Davidson HS Bands in Facebook and follow @HVDWildcatBands on Twitter.  We will send out exciting news and updates there as well!
