Newsletter: Week 8 (It's October)
Fantastic job last night! A special shoutout to the Roadies. You look great in your shirts, and we greatly appreciated your help! We need all the help we can get at competitions. Another special should out to the student leadership! Our Drum Major, Captains, and Section Leaders were absolutely on it this weekend. We went to an away football game and competition, and due to their dedication, leadership, organization, and overall service; both events went very smoothly, and we had fun in the process!
Please check out the video, the band earned a 75 at our first competition. We have a ton of work to do and I'm so proud of how this production is continuing to develop.

Away game at Interboro High School
This will be a Full Uniform (black t-shirts) Pep Band experience and it will be entirely optional; we will talk about it later. Color Guard attending the event should wear all black (show shirt, black pants, etc.) Please attend if you feel comfortable. If you do not feel comfortable attending an away game in an unfamiliar stadium, please stay home. Interboro is a unique situation, and their team is pretty bad this year. This could be a really fun game; it just has a lot of unknown factors.
