Friday – Home Game against Decatur
The Band article from Mr. Raney is available with information about this week’s schedule. http://sparkmanband.com/alabama-state-championships-week/
Many volunteers are needed for this game. This is our last opportunity to raise money through concessions this year! Please sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4caeac2cabfa7-nov1shs1
if you can spend any time helping the band.
Also note a new volunteer position has been created for ‘Band Escort-Halftime’.
With the current ‘in-progress’ status of the football field, we have found that students are having difficulty making their way through the crowds when moving from the stands to the field and then again from the field to the stands.
We are looking for 4-5 parents to assist with clearing a path and keeping our band members together. You will only be needed near the end of the second quarter and after halftime.
Students who plan to eat at the concession stand prior to call time should complete this form: https://forms.gle/wB8zK2JbBfPz1kqZ8
This will help to plan for students arriving at concessions before the game.

We also need snacks for the bus ride home after competition! Please consider bringing 12oz Gatorade bottles and salty snacks (no peanuts or peanut butter) to school on Thursday after practice (dropoff at S9) or Friday (before or after the game) (dropoff at the HS Band Room).
We will be taking one bus for marching band students to watch the competition. A sign up is available here for the limited number of spaces – https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4caeac2cabfa7-hoover – first come, first serve.
Playoff Game – Friday, November 8 – at Hoover
It appears that our first playoff game this season will be played at Hoover. Our band will attend the game and perform in the stands and at halftime.
Specific times are not yet known, but volunteers are needed for uniform help (before and after), pit crew and chaperones. Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4caeac2cabfa7-nov8shs
Booster Meeting – Tuesday, November 12
Our next Booster Meeting will be Tuesday, November 12 at 6:00 pm in the High School Band Room.
Please plan to attend as we will be discussing future plans for concert season, future fundraisers, and Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion.
Fruit Sales are ongoing!
Remember, unlike other fundraisers, the profit from these sales goes directly into each individual student’s account – lowering your fees for next year (or this spring)!
Order forms and money will be collected on Thursday, Nov. 7 and Friday, Nov. 8.
Fruit distribution will be Saturday, December 7. We will need volunteers to help with this – watch for a Sign Up Genius soon!
