BAND DIRECTORS' UPDATE
Great win for the Bobcats and a great performance by the GHMB at halftime!!! We’re looking forward to bringing the “2000s Pop Music” show home this Friday.
Ox Roast Pit Lighting - Friday, September 7
Just a quick courtesy reminder for next Friday, September 7th. The band will perform after the game for the Pit Lighting at the Ox Roast. More information will be released next Tuesday.
Each band member received a flip folder from the band at the beginning of their freshman year. The flip folder allows your student to conveniently keep their music organized and transport it easily.
If your student has misplaced their flip, it is their responsibility to replace it. Flip folders are available from Stanton’s Sheet Music (330 South Fourth St), Music & Arts (Graceland Shopping Center), Buckeye Brass (7445 Montgomery Dr, Plain City), or online. Flip folders come standard with 5 ‘windows.’ It is recommended you purchase extra windows to accommodate all the music distributed.
Music/Flip Folders will be checked weekly and is calculated into your student’s grade. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

All four rehearsals are considered required and will be calculated into your grade.
