FB Game: Information regarding times is to the left. We will be wearing our uniforms! Students will be given a third quarter break to eat dinner, use the restroom, etc.

Saturday’s Competition: Times for the day are posted to the left. Students should bring lunch or have food dropped off for them for lunch. After our performance we will change into jeans and a band shirt, so students will need to pack these items. Band sweatshirts, jackets, or other band attire can be worn with jeans as well. For dinner, students should bring food or money to purchase food at Brick after we change.

Spectators for Saturday: Tickets for this weekend’s competition at Brick Memorial HS (2001 Lanes Mill Road, Brick, NJ 08724) are $10 for adults, and $8 for students/seniors. Tickets can be purchased at the football game Friday evening.

Conversation with a WW2 Vet: Next Tuesday, we will be lucky enough to meet with Mrs. Hatton’s grandfather! He served during WW2, and will be sharing his experiences with us. Students are to report to the lecture hall at 12:30pm (during period 7), and we will remain there until the close of the day.

Band lessons: Lunch lessons have begun! All students enrolled in the band class need to take a weekly lesson as part of their band class grade. These lessons occur during lunch periods, and the schedule is posted outside of the office door. Students without a lunch will need to work with Miss Sanford or Mr. Miller to see what can be done in place of lessons.

October 13th: To clear up any confusion, there IS a competition scheduled for October 13th at Woodbridge HS. This was on the original schedule, and for a short time was taken off as we were uncertain how this would conflict with the homecoming schedule. Students wishing to attend homecoming will still be able to do so, more information regarding times will be provided as we get closer to that date.

Other important information to remember:
-Make sure you’re signed up for the band remind! Text @hseband to 81010.
-Mark your calendars, our next Raider Brigade meeting is scheduled for 10/9 at 7:30pm in the chorus room- all are welcome!
