The Grandview Heights Band Parents will be arranging for senior banners for all GHHS Marching Band seniors. Seniors are asked to have their photos taken for this purpose after school on Thursday September 17. Additional details:
Students should meet GHBPA volunteers outside of the Band Room.
Photos will be taken from 3pm through 4:30pm, or until all seniors have been photographed, whichever comes first.
Students are asked to wear shorts/t-shirt/other lightweight clothes over which they may easily slip their formal marching uniform (which will be provided).
Students may go home and get their instruments and/or arrange to have they instrument brought to them if they wish to have it in the picture - but it is not required that they do so.
In the event of rain, please watch this space and/or visit our Facebook page for further updates.
FALL FOOTBALL INFo
A 24-piece pep band is playing at all home Bobcats football games, and two family members per band member will be permitted to attend each game. If your student is identified to perform at a game, you/they will receive email instructions from Mr. Herrmann on Wednesday or Thursday of the week of the game. Note that if for any reason you are not comfortable sending your student to perform, this is not a mandatory performance and your student may be excused (please contact Mr. Herrmann to discuss).

NO INSTRUMENTS IN SCHOOL
Just a reminder that even as we (hopefully!) pivot to a hybrid school day model, with students physically in the building for partial school days, students should NOT bring their instruments to school with them. Mr. Herrmann and the school administration and facilities personnel continue to evaluate the latest research and potential plans for indoor playing, but unfortunately we do not have a plan yet that would allow for indoor instrument playing in a manner that ensures everyone's safety.

Interested in donating to the Grandview Heights Band program?
Running a band program is an expensive endeavor. The Band Parents Association works all year to raise money to support Grandview Heights band students in grades 5-12. The funds are used to subsidize the cost of high school band camp, purchase uniforms and instruments, and fund scholarships, among any other things. Want to help? Click the "donate" button at the top of the page to contribute. And thanks for being a part of the success of our bands!
