Dear Marching Band Families,

We are excited to perform our 2013 competitive program at Ford Field this Saturday. State Finals is the culmination of all of our students’ hard work this season. We are very proud of the work they have put in. The more parental support we have in the audience this Saturday the better, so please attend and cheer loudly for us!

A couple of notes about Saturday:
1.  Please wear your green PRIDE shirt under your uniform.  After our performance and bus loading, we will return to the stadium to watch the rest of the Flight I band performances.  If you want to buy concession food, you will take your uniform jacket off to keep it clean.
2.  If you would like to buy food from the concessions, bring money.
3.  Do not bring any valuables!  Leave them at home.  You cannot leave any valuables on the buses.
4.  Please read the new Ford Field bag policy HERE.  Purses can only be a small clutch, NO camera bags are allowed, NO diaper bags are allowed.  NO backpacks are allowed.  If you want to bring in a bag, it must be no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ and must be clear.  Check out the policy today to make sure you are prepared!

FEED THE BAND:  the band will be eating lunch at 11:30am.  Kirstin will be serving a sandwich bar and has asked that each student bring in $5.  Please bring your money in as soon as possible.  Put it in an envelope and mark “FEED THE BAND” with your student’s name on the outside…and place it in the BBAWB mailbox on the band room.
