CONGRATULATIONS TO WILLIAM MASON’S TOP GUNS!!!

Congratulations to our Marching Band for their placement as a BOA Grand Nationals Finalist!!  We are so proud of our students and their hard work throughout the entire season! It has been an incredible flight full of fun and memorable moments.  The quote “You can be my wingman anytime” will now  mean so much more thanks to our wonderful band family.

 

THANK YOU PARENT VOLUNTEERS!

A special shout out to the very best parent volunteers who give so much of their time and talents to our program all year and especially when our band travels. We could not do what we do without them! Pit/Prop Crew, Uniform Crew, Band Aid/Chaperones, Photo Corps, Spirit, Booster Board & everyone who answers the call and does whatever is needed like sewing a prop tear, dropping off 260 bottles of water(x10), or serving a meal! Thank you all!!!

 

SAVE THE DATE FOR THE MARCHING BAND AWARDS NIGHT

Please mark the evening of November 30th at 6:30pm on your calendar for this year’s marching band awards night.  This will be a fun evening to celebrate each band member's achievements throughout the marching band season and to reminisce on all of the amazing moments we have all shared together.  You won’t want to miss it! The event will take place in the High School Auditorium. 

ORDER YOUR TOP GUN MARCHING BAND MEMORY BOOK NOW!

Memory Books are $50 each. Order HERE by Nov 30th. Each year, a group of talented parents prepare a Memory Book that captures all the amazing moments of our season using SmugMug photos from our dedicated Photo Corps parent/alumni volunteers. This year’s book has 77 pages filled with all the wonderful moments throughout the season from Mini-Camp, History Night, Rehearsals, Parades, Football Games, Competitions, Sections & Seniors, Grand Nationals & more! Books will be sent to the printer on 12/1 and we hope (but cannot promise) to have them ready for pickup before the holiday break. We’ll share updates on pick up timing in the Band Notes & Facebook Parent/Families Group.

PANO/SECTION PHOTO UPDATE

For those who ordered Pano/Section photos, we were hoping to have those ready for pickup at Awards Night on Nov 30th. Unfortunately, there are supply shortages of the frames, so it is unlikely they will be in by Nov 30th. We will keep you updated.
