Busy week for the HC Band!

Dear HC Band Family,

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  First, thanks to all for a great start to our school year!  We are excited about the year ahead!

My apologies to all for completely missing the call on the weather last Friday for our home football game.  I had a number of things I was considering that factored into my decision before the end of the school day on Friday including communication on the 3rd day of school with 170+ band students and familiesconcerning rides home if there had been inclement weather, in addition to the preservation of an aging inventory of instruments and new electronics needed for the marching band performance at halftime.  We had a situation last year where I kept us out there too long and we got hit with a pop up storm and put unnecessary wear on both our marching uniforms at the time and the instruments.  We take our commitment to the community seriously, but also must take care of our own.  We will release information about upcoming games as they approach in the near future.

We have a busy week!  Please see the details below:
