STATE BAND COMPETITION & BAND BOOSTER UPDATES
This Saturday, the Cat Band will travel to Spring Valley HS to compete in the SCBDA 4-A State Marching Championships. Click HERE for the itinerary for Saturday’s competition.
Hospitality will meet in the cafeteria on Saturday at 1:30. We will prepare to serve the band meal at 3:30 before they travel to Spring Valley High School. We will serve BBQ sandwiches, corn and green beans and banana pudding for dessert. We will need to set up tables, make drinks, prepare a salad for vegetarians and also prepare snacks to serve after the band performs. Please come and help if you are available.
The buses will travel down Olde Farm Road to Rawl Road and then onto Longs Pond Road to I20.
We will be looking for families to line up anywhere along that route to cheer the students and buses on the way to State Finals. There are plenty of Lots to park and wave your signs and cheer your students on their way! We hope to give them a great send off on Saturday!
We have signs available for your use. Please see Andrea Thomason at Thursday’s Stadium Practice or Saturday at Call time to collect your signs.
