Oct 4 Party

We are still looking for senior parent hosts for the October 4 band party! Hosts provide the main course and then ask for specific donations for the evening. If you are available to host, please contact Julie Ford ([email protected]) to let her know how many chaperones you will need and what donations you are requesting. Julie will manage the sign-up for donations.

Cookie Donations

Please keep bringing in cookie donations! Following their halftime performance at each home football game, the Band and Guard celebrate with cookies and drinks in the end zone. We also invite the visiting band to join in.

We rely on the generosity of our band families to provide these snacks. Donations of prepackaged cookie can be left with a director or in the cookie bin, which is located in the uniform closet (look for the yellow lid). Cookies such as sugar, chocolate chip, Fig Newtons, etc. are great options. Please avoid cookies with lots of chocolate, as they will melt.

Football Game Ticket Presale

Presale tickets for home varsity football games are available on the Thursday and Friday prior to the game. Presale tickets are $5 each (tickets are $7 at the gate).

Presale tickets are available as follows:
  • @Athletic Office (Thursday 8am-3:30pm, Friday 8am-2:30pm)
  • @ MHS Main Office (Thursday 1pm-6pm)
  • During ALL High School lunches on Thursday and Friday

Help sell spirit wear at the home football games. Set up about an hour before kickoff and pack it all up in the 3rd quarter. You will get into the game free and you will get to see the band perform at halftime.

Chaperones

Chaperones help keep track of students, enforce "travel rules", assist with uniforms, and other tasks as needed. They may help move equipment onto the field for this year's show. Chaperones need to have an approved background check. No experience necessary; rookie chaperones will be paired with experienced chaperones.
