Football  game tips for students:
  • Students need to wear marching shoes (handed out next week) and shin/knee high black socks (like dad’s dress socks).
  • Students should wear lightweight athletic shorts and the black uniform shirt (rookies will not have this until the second game, so please wear a PLAIN black tee shirt)
  • Long hair will need to be pinned up or in a bun (should not be seen under helmet)
  • Students should eat dinner BEFORE they come
  • Students will receive gloves when they arrive
Football game tips for parents:
  • There is a fee for entering the game (please be aware) even if it’s just to watch the band
  • At halftime, the optimal viewing spot is 50 yardline as high as you can get (this may mean you have to go up there JUST for the halftime performance)
  • Cheer as loud as you can, the kids feed off of this
  • Come and support and have fun, it becomes quite a community 🙂
Future items of importance
  • Ice Cream Social tickets will go on sale soon, stay tuned….
  • Timing of September 8th (Saturday) rehearsal is TBD now due to the ACT test
  • Concert dress and tuxedo fittings will happen soon
  • The Homecoming Parade this year is ON-CAMPUS on Friday.  Parking lot will close promptly at 4pm (just trying to let you plan ahead)
