Reminder for Friday, Aug. 3rd band picnic:

This is an event for JV and varsity students and all family members.  We will begin serving dinner in the cafeteria (hamburgers, chips, drink, etc.) between 5:45-6:15PM, for $6 a person, which covers food costs- no reservation necessary.  Around 6:45PM, varsity band members will report to the stadium to warm up, and all JV students and all family members should report to the stadium stands.  The varsity band will perform a 20 minutes presentation of our marching show, followed by a “drill down” game for everyone, and we should be finished by 7:30PM.  There will be a brief band booster meeting in the choir room at the conclusion of the show.  Parents, please consider attending this meeting, as we will share upcoming information about the school year- we will make it 30 minutes or less!

Students should wear their 2018 show shirt and neutral colored shorts and tennis shoes.  If you don’t have your show shirt yet, please wear neutral colored clothing.

We will be accepting band fees during dinner in the cafeteria, at which time students can receive their show shirt.  $125 for varsity, $75 for JV and $50 for drill team.  Checks can be made payable to Shaw-Mi-No or anyone can pay online at under “group members payments”.


Request for additional parent help this Friday, from 2:30-6:00PM in the band room for uniform fittings.  We are fitting all freshman varsity members, and this requires extra parental help.  Help would be appreciated, even an hour or so during the 2:30-6:00PM timeframe.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday night!
