Our morning rehearsal is mandatory. Students are advised to wear a different set of clothes that can get a little dirty in the morning. Wearing show shirts is OK but not advised. Students MUST bring long black socks, show shirt, and proper undergarments to wear during the performance. Students can bring other pants such as jeans for after the performance but MUST wear our show shirt/hoodie (no section shirts - these will arrive before FoD.)
All students must ride the school bus TO and FROM the competition unless we have a signed permission slip from a parent/guardian stating that your child will be riding home with you or another individual. Please give permission slips to Cassie Folz (Drum Major) or email Mr. Leslie/Mr. Knight. The Permission slip was attached to the schedule given to all students at rehearsal.
Several parents have volunteered to bring Brunch items for he kids to eat after they load the trailers. After our evening performance, parents are also providing sandwiches. If you do NOT want to eat these items, please thank the parents and plan to bring a lunch and/or money for the concession stand at dinner. If you can make a contribution to help cover the cost of the meals or bring an item, please speak with Kori or Donnarae. NEW - The NPPA has just created a special fund for donations to help cover the cost of meals at competitions. Every little bit helps!

These will be available for pickup at our rehearsal Saturday. There are 35 $10 tickets in each student's bundle for a total of $350. If you wish to pay the band fee upfront and enter your name on all the tickets, please write your name on all tickets and return them to a Director, Donnarae, or the black box.
