Students: in addition to wearing show shirt, bring various snacks and clothing for a variety of temperatures that day/evening.
Bring money for concessions if you desire. Do not bring expensive technology times. Shaw-Mi-No, SMSD or staff can be held liable for stolen or misplaced items.
Parents: An open invitation for MORE parents to attend on Saturday. If you are making the trip down, please help the band with setup. We were short about 3-5 parents. We need at least a crew of 20. I know it’s a long day, but it’s fun, rewarding, and without a doubt, a day you will never forget with your child. Tickets are $12 or more, but we generally get all parent helpers in for free.
Cross country/band students: I know it’s League. Arrangements can be made for the varsity races to meet us after the race. It’s very unfortunate not all JV/C team cross country/varsity band students can do both. Coach Davidson and I have talked. We’ve done the best we can with scheduling, considering the fact we do not 100% control CMU marching festivals, nor KSHAA race times. Please email me with questions/concerns.
