Hello marching band students and parents,
Congratulations again on a wonderful marching band season and final performance at the State Championships. You should all be proud of your hard work this season; it was appreciated by both judges and audiences.
1. Football This Friday 10/25 Turns out marching band isn't *quite* over yet. We have a home playoff game this Friday against Madison La Follette. Wear the student section theme (I'm told it's "Costumes") and we will play from the stands, with a halftime show from the drum line. Please be in attendance and make sure that your costume allows you to play your instrument.
2. Football next Friday 11/1 There is the possibility of a home game again next Friday, but it is unlikely based on the WIAA bracket. It would require not only us to beat La Follette, but for #8 Madison West to upset #1 Madison Memorial this Friday.
