Home Football Game Dinners for our Marching Band

Hello Band Parents,
I have helpers for Friday night home dinners, but anyone who said they would like to help is welcome to join us. The more, the merrier! Especially the Pink Out game on 10/7. During the Pink Out game we usually have around 300 kids (with 8th graders), and could use the extra hands.
Also I am looking for someone to take over dinners next year. Preferably someone with a freshman or sophomore that could do it for a few years. It’s a fun opportunity to get to know the kids. Please email me if you are interested and would like to shadow me this year. Spasquinzo@yahoo.com

Battle at the Big House

To clarify, the tentative schedule that Mr. Dudzinski distributed last spring in the marching band registration packet stated that the Battle at the Big House game was Friday, August 26th. The game was changed to this Thursday, the 25th, last June. Announcements were made at that time.


When in doubt, please always check Mr. Dudzinski’s calendar (see link below or click on Mr. D’s Calendar to the right of this screen):
