Hello Everyone,

We have our first football game is this Friday and the students are super excited! We will need lots of parent volunteers to help with uniforms, haul band equipment, chaperone, and work the concessions. Please let me know if you are interested.

Here is a breakdown of Friday, September 3rd, 2021 (please encourage eating and drinking, it’s a long, long day)

Fair Share – Final day to take advantage of the 10% discount. Make the check out to Hudson High Band Parents for a total of $135 dollars (includes the discount). This money goes toward halftime show design, band equipment, music, and most importantly DRY CLEANING of the uniforms.

Show Shirts – Our Show shirts will be distributed friday and are to be worn for the football game.

Rehearsal 2-4pm – Our rehearsal will only be till 4pm so students can freshen up before they come back for the game at 6pm for pre-game rehearsal.

Pre-game Rehearsal 6pm – Students will need to be on the practice field by 6pm. Band students will need to wear black socks, marching shoes, gym shorts and show shirts. Color Guard students will need to have their black shoes, socks, tights and show shirt. Pit/Xylophones/Marimbas/Ect will need to wear dark jeans, marching shoes and show shirt which will be your uniform for the night.

Football Game – Starts at 7:30pm and usually ends around 10pm

3rd Quarter Snacks – This is a fun tradition the students look forward to every year. This week the woodwind section will be providing snacks for the band to enjoy during 3rd quarter. October 1st – Brass snacks, October 15th – Percussion/Guard.
(It’s fun seeing the sections trying to outdo each other)

Bottled Water Donation – THANK YOU sooo much for all the donated water!! We are still looking for more and especially for the football games. If you can donate please bring it to the band room.

Tuesday September 7th – Make-up Rehearsal from 2pm – 4:30pm. Since we don’t have school on Monday will will need to have rehearsal on Tuesday.

HOT DAY September 18th – We have 56 students participating for this year’s HOT Day which is the most ever!! We will meet at Hudson HS at 10am and should return by 11pm. It’s going to be a FANTASTIC DAY!!!

Thank you Mrs. Dodd and all the volunteers who “popped up” a concession stand for the JV football game last week!!!!

It has been a good start to the year despite all the thunderstorms at rehearsal. The students have been very upbeat and I know they will have a fantastic time this Friday!
