Blurb

Hello Band Fam!!

I hope you have all recovered from a busy weekend!  The band had two great performances, bought home some hardware, and continued to raise the level of performance each and every time they step onto the field.  Congratulations to all the students on a wonderful double header.  Also, a big thank you to all the parents who helped keep the students safe, fed, and equipped!!

Concessions

With only 1 home Friday game left, time is running out to help with concessions!  With it being senior night, we would really like our underclassmen parents to step up and help out so that senior parents can just enjoy the night!  Please sign up below to see how you can help us finish the season strong!!  Thanks so much to all who have helped out!

Senior Night! – Home vs. Marysville – Friday, October 25th.

Report – 5:00

Game – 7:00

Halftime – Senior parents should make their way down to the track by about 3 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.  Parents whose child has the last name “A” will be closets to the home stands, while those whose last name is “Z” will be closed to the band stands.  Mr. Shultz and Mrs. Davoll will meet you down there to line you up.  When your child falls out of formation onto the sideline, you will simply step up to join them.  After all names are called, you will move up onto the track while the seniors serenade you!  J

On Monday, November 4th we will have our annual Marching Band Banquet.  We will begin serving cake and punch around 6:30.  We will then head in to the PAC for awards and videos about 7:00.  It will be a great night and we encourage all parents and students to be there!

Play off Games

Just wanted to let you know that at this point, it is likely we will have our first playoff game on Friday, November 8th.  Location TBD.  I will keep you posted as I have more information.  Attendance continues to be mandatory for play off games.  If you have already planned to be out of town, please let Mr. Shultz know ASAP.  And no…work is not an excused absence for playoff games.  Go Cats!!

Pictures!

We have had a lot of people express interest in being able to access the pictures that our band photographers take throughout the season.  I have included links for this year and last year’s pictures in case you would like to access pictures of your child.  A big thank you to all our photographer parents who put in so much extra time taking these wonderful pics!!

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!
