Re: Marching Band Activities and Schedule UPDATE  

Greetings Band and Color Guard Students and Families,  

March 31, 2021  

I hope that this communication finds you all well. I am excited to update you all on the Marching Band  Activity and Schedule for the month of April. Due to an easing of restrictions on outdoor activities, we  are excited to learn that we WILL be able to participate in the two Home Football Games in April and  that there will be a SENIOR RECOGNITION for the Class of 2021. I will provide as many details as I can  with this communication. Please understand that there are still decisions to be made about ticket sales  for the games and the process for this is still under construction. I will continue to send out information  as it becomes available to me. Thank you for your patience and understanding.  

The marching band has been working hard the past few weeks. We have worked up a few show tunes,  some stand tunes and yesterday we set the charts for the first movement of the field show. I am looking  forward to tomorrow where we may actually play and move for the first time this season. It will be  exciting. One thing is for sure…it is great to have everyone back together again to make music. I cannot  wait for you all to see what we have been working on this season.  

Since we have the addition of football games to our schedule I wanted to make sure that everyone was  informed of the rehearsal days, game days, and performances we will be making this season. The dates  for the month of April are below. Please note the addition of a rehearsal on April 9, as we have a home  football game that evening.

As of the writing of this letter I do not have final information about ticket sales to the football games.  The allowed spectator count will be increased to 500 people beginning tomorrow, April 1. I know that  there is work going on to ensure parent and fan tickets will be made available as much as possible. I will  send out information regarding ticket sales once I learn how the process will work.  

For the Senior Recognition that will take place on April 15. I will send out information as soon as plans  are finalized for the event. I am very happy that this will take place and I hope that all of you will be able  to participate with your child. Please be on the lookout for this information. I will be certain to send a  copy with your student once I receive it.  

Thank you very much for your understanding and support. I will be in contact again soon.  

Mr. Rutherford
