First Football Game 9/11

Hello Everyone,
Hope you and your family are adjusting well to the new school year. This Friday we will have our first football game and the students are super excited!! We will meet by the band room at 6:30pm. Students will need to wear blue jeans (not ripped), marching shoes, and show shirt. Show shirts and shoes will be given out either during school on Friday or when they arrive back at 6:30pm for the game. Students will also need to bring their normal mask which will be worn anytime we are not playing.

Due to Covid-19 guidelines and the high attendance expected for the game, we will not be able to sit in our usual area in the stands. Instead we will have a nice spot set up with chairs in the endzone by the ticket booth. Tickets may be purchase at: https://gofan.co/app/school/FL5911

Our students are very excited and are ESPECIALLY looking forward to the 3rd quarter snacks, lol. Luckily we are able to continue this tradition. All snacks will need to be prepackaged. If you are able to donate any snacks (little bags of chips, cookies, candy) bring it to the band room or the concession stand before the game. We will also need bottled water to keep the band hydrated during the game. Anything would be greatly appreciated!!

We’re still in need for volunteers to work the concession stand and chaperon the band. If you are able to volunteer make sure you are registered at Pasco County Schools. If you already applied and have not received your volunteer approval call (813) 794-2207 to expedite your approval.

If you are available Thursday night we could use some help in the concession stand for the JV Football game.

· Register as a volunteer and get approval through this link: Pasco County School Volunteer.
· Email me cadams@pasco.k12.fl.us to get on the concession list for either Thursday or Friday or both😉
