Wow, what a Saturday! To paraphrase one of our boosters, “so many great memories were made (and captured) this weekend”. The Patriot Classic was truly a remarkable event. A very special thank you to Barbie Davis for chairing the Patriot Classic. Her leadership was outstanding! To all the volunteers throughout the day, thank you, a thousand times thank you. You helped to create a wonderful memory for all of the student’s high school experience. There are so many people to thank, please know that everyone who was a part of the Northern Band family this past Saturday needs to be commended for putting on a first-class event.
This week’s schedule will feel like a walk in the park compared to last week, but there is a slight change on Thursday due to the half day. Students will not be permitted to stay after school on Thursday and the start time of the rehearsal will be pushed back to accommodate getting to rehearsal.
I hope that everyone enjoyed Homecoming this past weekend and got rejuvenated for the week ahead. This Saturday we will be hosting the 24th Patriot Classic. This is a very anxious time for everyone as we want to show what an amazing place NHS is. We are still in need of volunteers to help with parking and band guides. If you know of some students who need service-learning hours, please point them in our direction.

The weather for Saturday looks great! The weather for Tuesday and Thursday looks grey. Please make sure to pack appropriately for our rehearsals. The next two Tuesdays (10/8 and 10/) we will be rehearsing on the main field and will want to take full advantage of the ability to use the stadium.
Looking forward to a great week!!!
What a great weekend!!! I hope that you enjoyed it has much as I did. We still have a lot of work left to do but I am excited about the possibilities as the band heads towards the Patriot Classic on October 12th, but first...
This is always a very exciting week for the students. This morning I was greeted by a clown, two eagles and Chewbacca, so as you can imagine the energy on campus is very high.
Our schedule will remain the same for Tuesday’s and Thursday’s rehearsal. Please note that the rehearsal is from 4 - 7, we still need to put things away after rehearsal. All students are expected to pitch in to help everyone get out as quickly as possible.
Our Friday schedule will be slightly different.
Thanks for the support,
