Saturday is a big day for our band kids . . . they will be
competing in the Midlothian Marching Showcase.
(The message below is being sent only to parents, so if you share an email address with your student, please try to delete this message quickly so they can be surprised on Saturday!)
SURPRISE – SURPRISE – SURPRISE
It has become a tradition to have a grand “Send-Off” for the band as the buses depart the THS parking lot before a competition.
We meet on the North end of the THS parking lot (in the middle of the parking lot over by the trees that are out in front of the A Building flag poles), line up across the spaces, and cheer as the buses go by on their way out to Midway Dr. Quick and easy, but so much fun!
The students will board the buses at approximately 11:45am on Saturday, and the buses
will depart at Noon from the Band Hall. Please arrive in the parking lot by 11:40am so we have time to line up before the buses depart. Elisa Baldock will be standing in the parking lot in the area where family and friends of the band should assemble. Please look for her and gather there so the students will not see the group until the buses turn the corner and cross in front of the school.
The band has worked so hard, and this is a great way to show we are behind them, show our appreciation to all of them, let them know how proud we are of them, and wish them luck! How great will it be for your student(s) to see you waving and cheering GOOD LUCK as they depart!?!?
Please bring signs (positive signs saying, GO Band, Good Luck in Midlothian, This band is RED hot, This Band Rocks, etc.) and noisemakers (cow bells, horns, clappers, etc.) so it is LOUD – anything to show your spirit! Wear your band bling!
This is a lot of fun, so please share this message with family, friends, and neighbors so we can gather as many fans as we can to cheer with us, and remember, we would like it to be as much of a surprise for the students as possible!
Thank you, Band Parents!!!
