Monday night rehearsal for varsity band, 6:30 to 8:30PM.
We’re organizing a pep band for the bonfire Thursday night. A report time of 7:30PM in the band room. It begins at 7:45 PM and lasts for about 45 minutes or thereabouts. This is an optional event for everyone, but lettering points will be awarded for varsity and JV. This is always a fun event!
Homecoming parade: all varsity and JV band students will be released from class at 1:00PM. We will warm up and stage, the parade begins at 2:00PM. The parade heads east on Johnson Drive for a little over a half mile. We will walk back. Students, please wear your show shirt and black shorts, any color shoes will do.
Itinerary for homecoming game:
5:00 PM- band room opens. Don’t forget your BLACK SOCKS! 🙂
6:00 PM- attendance taken on football field behind stadium (notice this is 15 minutes earlier than normal). This will be a quick warm-up, as the varsity band will play the full show before the game begins. Parents, this is very important… If you want to see the entire varsity show, please be in your seats well before 6:40 PM, which is when the varsity band will play. The varsity band will play a three minute show at the beginning half time, in order for the top 10 homecoming candidates to be recognized. All JV band students will play in the stands, but we will not do the traditional pregame show. The game should end around 9:30 PM, all band members should report to the band room and turn in their uniform for the evening.
Saturday: Overland Park parade- varsity and JV- this is a required performance.
8:00am- band room opens, distribute uniforms.
8:45- band departs via bus to the staging area, around 77th and Floyd.
10:00- parade begins, we’re entry number 58. Parents, the parade route heads down Santa Fe in downtown Overland Park. One of the best places to stand is by the clock tower. We should be finished a little after 11:00AM, will head back to North on buses, return uniforms, and will be finished for the day.
