TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH — Veteran’s Concert — 10 AM

Side Dishes update:

We have about 14 people signed up to bring so far! YAY! Thank you all so much! If we could get just a few more, I think that would be great! Please reply to this e-mail, e-mail Jenny Hogan or comment on Facebook to let us know you can bring something.

Tomorrow food should be taken directly down to the FCCLA room. They will begin receiving dishes in the morning. The concert starts at 10, so you should be able to take them directly to the FCCLA room as you bring the kids to school. I will be there if you have any questions.

Thank you for helping to make this concert a success for our Veterans!

This Weekend — More Info

A few more things regarding the coming weekend:

Friday, October 24th is Alumni Appreciation Night at the Football Game. Please be sure to share with all the alumni you know. Alumni are welcome to come play some tunes or just hang out with the Herd. Also on Saturday is our last competition at Vanderbilt Marching Invitational. We will be doing a band tailgate at 3:00pm at SCHS and will be heading to VMI just after 4:00pm. Our performance is at 6:33pm, so come check it out! The Marine Marching Band from DC will be giving an exhibition before awards that evening. It would be great to see lots of maroon on Saturday! Admission is $12 for VMI, but the Friday game and Saturday tailgate are free for alumni.

Saturday, October 25 — Senior Parents: This weekend will be your last chance to chaperone your child’s marching band experience. If you would like to be a part of this, message Karen Medana on Facebook or e-mail her at kdlddm or reply to this e-mail, and we will add you to the chaperone list. You will get first dibs this weekend on helping out. We would love to have all of you there to support our Seniors and our entire Thundering Herd! Call time is at 12:30 and we plan to be home by 10pm.

Tickets for Saturday’s performance — We have a section of 40 seats reserved at the Vanderbilt Stadium so we can all sit together and cheer on the Herd (we’re louder together). When you go to the ticket booth (don’t go to will call), just tell them you are with SCHS and the tickets you purchase will be in our section. They are $12/each. See you there! All parents and family and friends are encouraged to attend.

Don’t forget our tailgate on Saturday — a taco bar — before we leave for Vanderbilt. Here’s what to bring:

GUARD- chopped tomatoes
BRASS- black olives or chopped onions
