Color Guard- Mrs. Sipp will cover specifics that pertain only to color guard members in regards to makeup, hair, and uniforms. Read the rest of the material also.
Uniforms- Should be at home and hung up nicely. Students will be receiving marching shoes and gloves soon. Students must provide their own calf high, plain blacks socks for performances. Students should wear their 2017-18 band t shirt and athletic shorts under the uniform until cold weather moves in. Students are expected to wear their uniform correctly. This will change based on whether we are performing on the field or seated in the stands and it will be determined by Dr. Prost and Mr. Miller.
Food/Snacks/Water- Students that have won section of the week will be invited into the band room a little early that evening for their pizza party supplied by the band boosters. Freshman will be allowed to attend the Freshman Tailgate and will be given information about that next week. Other students should eat before arriving. We will have water in the stands for students during the first half, no other drinks or food should be brought to the game or purchased during the first half. Parents- help make sure that your student is fed prior to 5:45 so that we can focus on the task at hand- performing and being supportive of the football team.
Breaks- All students will be excused during the 3rd quarter of the game to get snacks and visit with friends. They are expected to be back in their seats ready to play at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Dismissal- The game is over when the clock reaches zero at the end of the 4th quarter. Students that leave early will not receive full credit for participation. We perform at the end of the game as a sign of school spirit and good sportsmanship. All students are expected to participate in that. Students will walk back to the band room, put all personal items away, and be dismissed. They are expected to take all parts of their uniform home with them after each game. The uniforms should be properly hung up on the hangar so that they look nice the next time that we need them.
