2. Please make sure that hair is of natural hair color, piercings are removed and men are cleanly shaven when in uniform. We have been having some issues with that. These rules have not changed all year on this. Also, the kids may wear a black long sleeve under their HMB t-shirt and black gloves if they wish.
3. Please prepare for the possibility of another playoff game next week. If our team wins there will be another playoff game. We will not know when the game will be until a day or so after this Friday’sgame but it could be Thursday, Friday or Saturday of next week. If you look at your yearly HMB calendar you will see that I put possible playoff game dates on the schedule. Please realize that these playoff games are required performances for us just like the regular season games. If your student does not attend they will receive a zero in the grade book. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
4. Our HMB Card fundraiser is coming to a close. Please turn in all money AND unsold cards no later than Friday, November 14th. The money and cards can be turned in after practice on Thursday or it can be put into the band booster drop box which is in Mrs. Rathke’s office. The kids know where that is. Please understand that if you do not turn in unsold HMB Cards that your student will be charged for them. We have to either have the money or the cards. If you have questions contact Shelly Nettuno at email@example.com
Marching season is almost over. Everyone hang in there. The kids are already working on Christmas music for our Christmas concert.
