FYI 10/9/2015 - 10/17/2015
We are sprinting towards the finish line in the competitive portion of marching band season! I wanted to take a moment and pass along details for the next few events.
10/9/15 Central @ Grove City
Our report time for students is 3:30 and our departure time tonight is 5:30. The weather should cooperate with no rain and temps in the 60's! We should be home around 11:15 pm.
10/16/15 Band Senior Night
Next week's home game is senior night! We plan to recognize all of our seniors and their parents. This will take place prior to pregame. Details for changing back into uniforms after the ceremony will be made with Mr. McClelland. Additionally, we are hosting 8th grade night. Ridgeview Junior High 8th graders will join us during pregame to experience what it's like to be under the Friday night lights!
Note: To stay in accordance with tradition and the wearing of goofy costumes, the senior show will take place on 10/29.
10/17/15 - 2 Events
Ronald McDonald House Collection
We have two big events on Saturday 10/17. In the morning we will be partnering up with the Ronald McDonald House to collect donations for all of the RMDH's in central Ohio. Mr. Sewell's Mission Statement for the Band was: Service through Musicianship. An organization as large as ours has the unique ability to have a huge impact on service projects like the RMDH, and it allows us to continue the mission Mr. Sewell charged the band with years ago.
Students will be assigned a McDonalds location, and will perform music from 9:00am - 11:30 am. Our three McDonald locations are:
Hill and Diley rd. (just off 33)
256 and refugee rd
256 north of 70 (next to smokey bones)
Each location will have a director to lead music and a booster chaperone to manage donations.
Pickerington Band Festival
In the evening we perform at our final district contest of the season. We perform at 9:45pm as the host band of the Pickerington Band Festival held at PHSN. Report time is 6:30pm at Central.
Transportation to the Pickerington Band Festival is a 1 way trip. Please plan accordingly.
Update on State Marching Band Finals
Our tentative SMBF performance Location and Date is Hilliard Bradley on 10/31. I will inform you when the performance time has been finalized by OMEA.
