Spring Showcase and Senior Recognition

posted Apr 14, 2021, 8:58 AM by Athens Drive High School Band

Hi band families! 

We hope you are all making plans to attend our Spring Marching Band Showcase and Senior Recognition on Friday evening.

Doc sent an email today detailing the schedule of events. Looks like the weather is going to be great and we are looking forward to seeing everyone!

Doors to the stadium will open at 6:15. We will have a few tables set up for senior mementos, Spring MB certificates, and ice cream vouchers and recruiting. Please stop by before the show begins to pick up your items. The tables will be closed down during the show. 

Seniors who registered for Marching Band in the fall, but were unable to participate in the spring, please note, you also WILL be recognized during the ceremony. ALL seniors will be asked to stand and be recognized. Also, all senior parents will receive a senior button and a printed program. So, be sure to stop by the “senior table” to pick up your mementos! And very importantly, we will also make sure you get an ice cream voucher!

If anyone has any questions, please let us know.

Hi there band families! I bet many of you heard from your band student how warm (hot?!) it was at practice yesterday!  

After freezing at football games we are now sweating it out at practice. We had several students struggling with the heat yesterday. PLEASE REMEMBER:

1. Have your student hydrate throughout the day so they come to practice well hydrated. 
2. Bring water to practice. Due to Covid restrictions, we no longer have large coolers full of water. Everyone needs to bring water. 
3. Bring sunscreen. Hats and sunglasses are also good options. There is no shade out on the field. 
4. If your student has not received their Once Upon A Time shirt, please have them find one of us at practice. 

Thanks, everyone! We hope you all enjoy the remaining days of band as we head into the home stretch of our Spring season.
