Band on the Run 2k, 5k, and 7k Race

Band Families-

Each year, SMHS band boosters holds a spring fundraiser.  In the past, we have held an event called Spring Sampler. While this has been an enjoyable event, it has not yielded us much money to support our band programs at Starr’s Mill. Our efforts support ALL of the band programs at Starr’s Mill.

This year we are hosting our first ever 2K, 5K, and 7K race.  The date of this race is set for Friday, April 26th.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 to replace some instruments and purchase more instruments for our band program next year. Many of our instruments are 20+ years old. The county nor the school provides money for replacing and purchasing new instruments.  It’s up to us to help our children get what they need so they can continue to grow musically!

We need EVERYONE’S help!  In order for this race to be a successful fundraiser, we need SPONSORS.  Sponsorship amounts are $50, $250, $500, and $1,000.  We are asking EACH band family to acquire two $250 or more sponsors.  Letters for sponsorship will be coming home with students next week.  We encourage you to ask anyone and everyone – doctors, dentists, businesses, etc.  Along with sponsors, we also need DOOR PRIZES.  This can be anything – gift cards, free haircuts, dog grooming, jewelry, etc. 

We really need everyone’s support in making this a success for our students.  More information about sponsorship will come home with your child next week. 

Thanks so much for helping us!  This is a great opportunity to get our community involved while helping our children.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at BeckyGarcia@smhsband.org

Thanks!

Adjusted 2019 Marching Band Schedule

Happy New Year Band Family! 
We always try to be proactive and give you dates of events as soon as we get them.  We know that your families are very busy and like to plan ahead.  But unfortunately, sometimes things change beyond our control and we need to make adjustments.  This is one of those times but I think you’ll like the alterations.  GHSA (the governing body of athletic events in the state) has decided to move the football schedule one week later.  So…the first game will be the Friday before Labor Day (instead of that being the second game) and the last regular season game on the second Friday of November (Thanksgiving is very late this calendar year).  So essentially we’ll have an extra week to prepare for the first game and our season will be at least one week later.  Because of the drive, dedication, work ethic, talent, etc. of our marching band students, we don’t feel we need that extra time.So basically we’ll start on Thursday, July 18 (instead of the Monday of that week) and have guard/percussion camps after band camp.  Also, the first Saturday rehearsal (now Aug 24) is only 8:00-12:00 because it primarily gets us ready for the first game.
We’re looking forward to an exciting marching band season with a very different show from this past season.  Make sure you keep your body moving throughout these months so the May rehearsals will be easy.  Please email Mr. King or Mr. Groover with any questions.

Great News!

Great news! The homecoming game has been moved to Sept 6 (with the parade being Sept 5 and dance being Sept 7), so it doesn’t affect marching band contest season. So our contests will be on Saturday, Sept 28, Oct 5, and Oct 26 (not competing the week before or after the 4 day weekend).

Parent Information for Senior Night Friday – Go Panthers!

Seniors involved with Dance, Football, Band, or Cheerleading:

On Friday, October 26, 2018, we will be honoring our Senior dance team, football players, band members, and cheerleaders. This will take place before the game, immediately following the pre-game warm-up. Parents and seniors should plan to be in the stadium and on the track no later than 6:50 that evening so that we can begin lining everyone up. To gather information about each of the student participants, we emailed a google form to the student’s email address. We asked them to complete the form and have it submitted by Thursday, October 18th, and we will follow up with those who did not.

Thank you for your help! Mrs. Bowen, Mrs. O’Shields and Mrs. Spencer

Mrs. Bowen (bowen.jillian@mail.fcboe.org) or Mrs. Spencer (spencer.julie@mail.fcboe.org) or Mrs. O’Shields (oshields.paula@mail.fcboe.org)

In case you are nervous about how this works:

By 6:50: Parents are on the home side of the track getting in their lines

Seniors are on the visitor side of the track getting in their lines.

As soon as the pre-game warmup clears the field, we start 🙂

Seniors will be lined up in the center of the field, parents along the home sideline facing their child. We will announce one group at a time beginning with the dance team. They will be followed by Football, Band, and Cheer. Once the last athlete is introduced, quickly leave the field so that the next group can begin. (Football players report quickly to fieldhouse after your group)

The seniors come to mid-field together, one group at a time, and then we begin announcing them individually. As a name is called, the player starts walking towards the parents, and the parents start walking toward the student. Once they meet in the middle, they will hug, and then face the home stands together. A photographer will be there taking pictures, so smile pretty 🙂 They will remain in that spot as the following member is announced. Once the last member is announced, the script will say something to finalize this group, and then the whole group leaves the field and we proceed right into the next group.
