Hello everyone-

Tomorrow is homecoming and I wanted to email two important announcements made in class throughout the week.

– everyone should wear their show shirt and black (or dark) shorts for the parade tomorrow.  All band members are released from class at 1:00PM, and you should report to the band room.  I am aware of a few band members are participating with other school activities in the parade…thank you for those students who have already communicated that.  The parade begins at 2:00PM and runs east on Johnson drive to about Lamar.  We will walk back at the conclusion of the parade and should arrive back around 3:00PM or so.  Then the band room opens at 5:00PM for the football game, as previously announced in another email (which can still be read online at www.smnorthbands.org under Mr. Reed’s notes).  Tomorrow is always an eventful opportunity to bring everything you need to school, or make arrangements to go home, change and eat between 3-5PM.  😊


PARENTS (varsity, JV and drill team)- WOULD ALL OF YOU please click on the link below to sign up for at least one shift for the Oct. 13th Marching Invitational.  We will have over 1,200 visiting performers PLUS 2,500 guests on our campus all day.  This is a huge event and we need approximately 100 parents to make this work!  This is our one big yearly event that is an “All Hands On Deck” moment!

Parents, also please remember we will have a brief meeting in the band room after halftime of tomorrow night’s game to organize and answer questions about the Oct. 13th marching invitational.  I will yell up into the stands at the conclusion of halftime for all parents to meet in the band room.  We will have computers ready at the meeting to sign up for shifts (via the link below).  The meeting will be over by 4th quarter, so you can go back outside to watch the students perform in the football stands.


Looking forward to seeing everyone at the parade and/or homecoming game!

Mr. Reed
