Announcements Week of 10/23/2017

•  Regular rehearsal schedule this week.  Count on going the full time, but if we have productive rehearsals you may be done early.

•  We will have a detailed state finals day schedule for you once we know warm-up times, etc.  For now, plan on a 9AM departure.  We will not be stopping to eat on the way down, so eat a good breakfast.  We will stop at Tuttle Crossing Mall on the way home for dinner.

•  The Florida trip is less than 2 months away!!  There will be a required trip meeting on Thursday, November 16th, at 6PM in the PHS Cafeteria.  Please plan to bring at least one parent to this meeting as we will be discussing expectations and guidelines for the trip.  This is not optional.  In addition, please review the trip itinerary and letter posted on the band website.  We have very high behavior expectations for a trip like this.

•  Please continue checking the Disney page on our website.  Information regarding packing, behavior expectations will be posted there over the coming weeks.

•  Thought the regular season is not over, plan on a game next Friday evening in Lakewood, OH or Cleveland, OH.  Details will be available next Monday.
