FB Game: Information 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.
Rehearsals for Comp Band: Due to the football game scheduled for Thursday evening, we will not be holding comp band practice that night. In it’s place, we will hold a shortened rehearsal Friday evening for percussion and guard students. Additionally, as Tues will be our only practice this week any students who miss Tuesday’s practice will not be permitted to perform this Saturday.
Halloween Parade: The Halloween Parade is scheduled for this Wednesday, times are to the left. This is a graded performance, and all students are expected to participate. We will be wearing uniforms.
Veteran’s Memorial Service: We will be performing at the dedication ceremony of the HSE Military Wall on Friday, 11/2. All students are expected to participate, and will be excused from their classes. Students should report to the band room promptly at 11:45am. Students are to wear their band polos, jeans, and band shoes. Weather permitting, this ceremony will take place outdoors – please bring your raincoats as we will wear them if it is cold outside.
ACC’s: 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. The Raider Brigade will be providing dinner for students after our performance. After dinner, seniors will need to change back into uniform as they will be participating in TOB’s senior recognition ceremony, held directly before awards.
ACC Spectators: ACC’s will be held at West Shore Stadium, 1301 Carlisle Road, in Camp Hill PA.. Tickets will be for sale at this Thursday’s football game. Tickets will be $20 for adults and $15 for students/seniors.
Veteran’s Day Parade: We will be performing in the TR Veteran’s Day parade on Monday, 11/12. This is a mandatory performance, and students will be excused from their classes. Students should report to the band room at the close of first period. We will be wearing uniforms, so be sure to bring your under-uniform attire to school that day. Students with longer hair should have their hair in braids (not full show hair). In the case of inclement weather, the parade will be cancelled – information regarding any possible cancellations will be sent out via Remind!
