First Football Game Tonight — Reminders

Tonight is the first football game at Beech. A few reminders:

Call time for students and chaperones is 5:30 pm

Students should be in summer uniform: band polo, appropriate length khaki shorts, long black socks (over the ankle, preferably crew), marching shoes and black belt.

Be sure students have something to eat (dinner) between school and call time because the band will not have a break until third quarter.

The band usually gets a break during the third quarter so having money is a good idea.

It is very, very hot out there so be sure your students hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Send lots of water and be sure your students understand that soft drinks are not hydration.

The band will go to Beech HS by bus and return by bus. The students will be asked to text or call you when we leave Beech so you will have an approximate time of when to pick them up.

Once the band returns, all equipment has to be unloaded and the entire band is dismissed together. No one leaves until the bus and trailer are unloaded and the entire band is dismissed by the director and the drum major.

Chaperones for the game have been contacted by Tara and Stanley. If you have not been contacted, you are encouraged to attend the game in your own car and support the band. The students love a cheering section.

The season has begun! Have fun!
