As discussed during rehearsal last week, although we are the last band of the day, there aren’t as many bands participating, hence the earlier performance time. Teachers have been notified that you will be gone for the duration of the day on Wednesday. Make sure to complete make up work ahead of time, if possible.
5:00PM- band room opens, begin uniform distribution.
5:45- “big brothers sisters“ meet Hocker grove students in parking lot, in full uniform.  Big brother/sister list will be posted by band office.
6:15- attendance taken on JV field, full uniform ready to go.
6:40- pregame begins
7:00- football game begin
745-ish- Halftime show. At conclusion of performance, all band parents, please report to the band room for our SMN Marching Invitational parent meet. Parents, I can’t stress enough that this is an “all hands on deck“ meeting. We will conclude the meeting before fourth quarter begins, so you can continue to watch the kids play in the stands during 4th quarter.
Parents, please use this Sign-up Genius for the October 16th Shawnee Mission North Marching Invitational! Job assignments will be discussed/explained at the meeting.  You can sign up during the aforementioned meeting, but if you want to get a head start, please do so:
Other upcoming events:
Oct. 4th (Monday) SMSD marching festival @ SM South.  7PM performance time, more info next week.
Oct. 5th (Tuesday) Block 4 jazz ensemble playing @ Hocker’s concert in auditorium, 7PM.
Oct. 8th– Home football game
October 9th– Olathe Marching Festival/Homecoming- our performance time is 1:30PM, which is later than I mentioned about a week ago. But you can still leave immediately after our performance as long as you communicate your plans. Please use this Google form if you want to leave early. Otherwise, we will leave around 4:00 PM via buses to go back to North. More details to follow in a couple weeks, but I wanted to get the 1:30 PM performance time on everyone’s radar.
G form for NOT riding back on the bus from Olathe marching festival, Oct. 9th:
Looking forward to a fun and busy week!
