SENIOR night reminder

posted Oct 19, 2018, 9:09 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Oct 19, 2018, 10:09 AM ]

Senior Band Families!

This is your big night!  You've all worked so hard to get here and we know you couldn't be more proud!  It's your students moment to shine, share their dreams and families with the masses.  

We wanted to be sure and remind you to wear your Senior Button tonight, a representation of being a band parent and honoring your students accomplishments under the night lights.

It will be a busy time getting all families together and organized.  We are asking you to line up by last name alphabetical order just before halftime.  Liz Starling will be there to assist in lining up your families (she also has worked many hours on your keepsake program...you are gonna love it). 

So dress up, suit up or layer up (it's going to be cold) but most importantly, show up!

If you are up for tail gating before the game, there will be a food truck (Ty's All Natural) outside of the stadium with quite an amazing menu.  Make it a night to remember, make it a memory maker for your family!  As you all know too well....time flies!

Looking forward to seeing you all under the lights,

Michaele & Suella

8th Grade Band Night Reminder

posted Oct 19, 2018, 8:55 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Oct 19, 2018, 10:09 AM ]

Tonight is an extra special football game because it is not ONLY Senior Recognition, it is 8th GRADE night as well.  Oh, and there is going to be a Food Truck (called Ty's All Natural) for those looking to tailgate!  Check out their menu below.  

Tonight is a fantastic opportunity to introduce 8th grade students to the amazing band program at Athens Drive High School.  They can see the band in action all under the Friday Night Lights!  

All 8th grade families will receive FREE admission and a voucher for the concession stand up to $5!  It's a free night of entertainment!  

Maybe bring the 8th grade neighbor, maybe tell your student to round up any 8th grade friends they think would love band like them!

Spread the word, spread the fun!  Keep our band program growing.  

We look forward to seeing you all under the Friday Night Lights tonight!

Hello Band Families!

Friday is Senior Recognition and it’s kind of a big deal for our Seniors!  We are looking for a few volunteers to help Liz Starling with arranging the families (alphabetically), passing out programs to the families....basically helping where needed.

If you are planning on attending this LAST game of our marching band season - we could sure use your hands with this special night.

Thank you for helping to make our Seniors and their families feel as special as they truly are!

Please email:  president@athensdriveband.com

State Fair Parking - We Need You!

posted Oct 14, 2018, 6:07 PM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Oct 14, 2018, 6:07 PM ]

The State Fair is our BIGGEST fundraiser - it requires a lot of families to step in and get involved.

There are several openings throughout the week, a perfect way to put money in your band account.  Remember, each family is required to work 5 Service Credits,  which means a single shift credits either $75 (weekend) or $65 (weekday) to your account, up to 5 shifts!  Sweet way to pay down your account!

Click on the link below.....come on out....join the fun....pay your account!  Win-Win!

Any questions - contact statefairparking@athensdriveband.com

See you at the State Fair!
Michaele & Suella
