Clinton (Home) - Friday, October 13th, 2017
All instrumental students will arrive in MARCHING UNIFORM. Jackets will be closed, students may carry their gauntlets and gloves, and all will wear TALL BLACK SOCKS!
Color Guard will have a uniform plan with Ms. Sharp.
6:00 PM All Students will meet at the trailer to get instruments, shakos and plumes (no shakos or plumes for seniors at this time), and then go to upper Blankenship for warm up and to ADJUST the tunnel. Give yourself plenty of time to be EARLY because the entire area around the stadium will be congested.
Seniors will be rehearsing the National Anthem, while the underclassmen rehearse for their performance from the tunnel.
6:15 PM - Senior Parents meet Ms. Hammer at the lower concession stand. See below for more Information.
10:00 PM(est) - Game ends.Parents please pick up your students in a timely manner after the game.
Uniform Note - The ORHS Band stays in uniform all evening. Jackets are not taken off inside the stadium. Always hang or gently/respectfully handle your uniform when changing. Band students are very visible, so we want to always present a positive image to the community.
Senior and Senior Parent Information
Parent / Guardian will be the only names announced as senior is introduced, but anyone may walk with the student. Senior Parents are asked to meet in the endzone (on the grass) by the lower concession stand at 6:15. Dawn Hammer and a helper will be there to pin the parents with a corsage/boutonniere to celebrate the evening! Your senior will join you there. You will be lined up alphabetically with your student and then walk through the goal posts and onto the field to be announced. Jon Shipley, photographer, will take a photo of your "group" prior to going onto the field.
Seniors will stage their instruments on the track to be collected as soon as the student exits the field. No shakos for the presentation.
Upon exiting the field, seniors will immediately arc up to perform the National Anthem.
The directors are expecting the seniors to stay for the entire game.
Parents, nice casual is the recommended dress to those who ask, but there is no actual dress code - weather appropriate! As you pick your shoes remember that you are walking on the grass field.
The presentation is SO fast - NOT indicative of the time or the effort your student - and in many cases YOU - have given to the ORHS WildBand. Just a small recognition and thank you.
Congratulations and enjoy!
