Thank you for all of you that showed up to our first football game to show support for our team and marching band members. It was a great turnout and a fantastic game. The students did a fantastic job and I am very proud of all of the hard work that they have put in thus far.
This Friday (Sept 4) will be our first football game. I would love to see all band parents come out and show your support as we play perform at home for the first time this year. As a reminder, all band fees need to be paid by OCT 1st if they wish to attend cedar point. I am in the process of reserving rooms and I need to have a definitive number. Also if you are interested in becoming a chaperone for this trip (OCT 16-18) please contact me asap.
· UC Band Day is Sep 12th – The game itself is a late one (8pm) and we will likely leave immediately following halftime. We will leave Mt Healthy at 1pm, call time for the students is 12:30 to load instruments and get their uniform.

Below is a message from our Band Boosters :
The Marching Band operates a "Bake Sale" at all home games in the Spirit Shack. We need parents to send in goodies on the week that their students section is assigned. I personally have two students so I send in something on both weeks since they are in different sections. If they are in the same section and you have more then one student please send goodies accordingly. Any and all donations are extremely appreciated! The list below shows what week each section has. Please mark your calendars, but I will send out reminder emails a few days before each game. Note: we have a Thursday evening game this season at home.
Sept 4- vrs. Bishop Finwick "Brass Section"
Sept 10 (Thursday) - vrs. Glen Este "Color Guard Section"
Sept 25 - vrs. Little Miami (Homecoming). "Percussion Section"
October 9 - vrs. Harrison "Woodwinds Section"
Sometimes parents like to send in snacks for the band at each game, if you would like to send anything just know that we have about 65 students.
If you would like to get involved in Boosters please contact me and I will help you get plugged into a committee or direct you where our biggest need is.
Thanks so much in advance for your help this season!
