Dear Band Families,

November is a super busy month for our band families with events and activities that will include both marching and concert bands.

Here are the highlights:
  • Thur., Nov. 6 — The November parent/booster meeting will be held in the band room at 6 p.m. Join us as we finalize details for the MPHS Band’s First Annual Mattress Sale, plan for the booster garage sale, discuss tentative plans for the spring concert band trip to California and begin the process of seeking nominations for the next executive board term. 
  • Fri., Nov. 7 — The Pride football team has a home playoff game vs. Westview. This game is also 8th Grade Band night, an evening where Middle school band students are invited to sit in the stands and perform with our Lionhearts and find out how much fun it is to participate in marching band. Our MPHS concert band students are also welcome to participate. 
  • Tue., Nov. 11 — Veteran’s Day Parade 
  • Fri., Nov. 14 — Possible 2nd round football play-off game TBA 
  • Sat., Nov. 15 — First Annual MPHS Band’s Mattress Sale combined with our end of season show for parents 
  • Fri., Nov. 21 — Possible 3rd round football play-off game TBA 
  • Sat., Nov. 22 — Band Booster Garage Sale 
Your support for the bands during this busy time is very important. Here are a few things you can do to help out:
  • Invite and encourage any middle school band students you know to come to the game on Friday. If you are in contact with Middle School Band Directors, invite them to encourage their students to participate. 
  • Attend the booster meeting and contribute your talents and ideas to our discussions. 
  • Spread the word about our Mattress Sale and pass out referral slips to anyone who expresses an interest. 
  • Go through your garage and closets to find gently used items that you can donate to the garage sale.
