We will have dinner around 4:15 pm. Students not wanting dinner from Crowe's are welcome to go into the stadium and eat from the concession stands once the band returns to the stadium.
For those parents who are driving their vehicles and going as spectators: Tickets are $7.00 for those seven years, and older. 6 and under are free. Parking will be $5.00
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO RIDE THE BUS WITH THE BAND TO THE COMPETITION. Students may be checked out and ride home with a PARENT or other ADULT with the properly signed notes.
A note about Chaperones: With all of our events, we need and appreciate those parents who chaperone for us. Participation is at an all-time high this year and seeing all of the volunteers around the band hall is exciting. However, if you sign up for one of the available chaperone slots, it is expected that you fully participate that day. That includes riding the bus, sitting with students and helping them throughout the event.
If your plans change, we need to know asap. There have been a few times this season that parents weren't able to participate due to lack of room on the volunteer schedule. Unfortunately, when the times for the events came around, we've had a few no-shows and have been left scrambling to find someone to fill the spot. To me, this lessens the experience for the students as well as making it more difficult for the chaperones.
So, if you think you've signed up for events and your schedule makes it impossible for you to attend, let us know. We'd like to give as many parents as possible the opportunity to enjoy working with our students.
Lastly, at this particular event, we are allotted one chaperone armband per 8 students. Priority for those armbands is reserved for those parents who sign up for the event and participate at the level expected. All others will have to pay at the gate.
