Band Reminders: Week of September 15th

TODAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH: Don’t forget to go by Which Wich in Hendersonville and support the Thundering Herd’s Spirit Night from 4 pm to 7 pm. We receive 15% of everything sold during that time. No flyers needed, just go and buy a wich! Money raised from Spirit Nights go to offset Disney expenses. The more we raise, the less your Disney fees will be.

THIS WEEKEND (From Mr. Scott):

Hello Band Family,

After joining the land of the living again and grabbing some much needed coffee, I’d like to say I’m incredibly proud of the people at Station Camp for helping host a fantastic event yesterday! The parents provided wonderful food and invested so much time and energy over the past few weeks to ensure SCMI was successful. There are simply too many to name individually. So many great things have happened for the Thundering Herd this year, and I am truly blessed to work with such wonderful people on a regular basis! Last and certainly not least, I am exceptionally proud of my students for their hard work, for carrying themselves well on and off the field, and for giving a great performance at SCMI. You all have worked incredibly hard and remind me on a regular basis why I love doing what I do. Good bands, good people, good food…it doesn’t get much better than that. No matter how you look at it SCMI was a HUGE success and this band has some FANTASTIC parents and students!!!

Now on for the nuts and bolts of activities for this week…
