Middle School Night

We will be hosting the 8th grade students of local middle schools Friday, October 13, 2017.  The students will join the Patriot Regiment on the field for the National Anthem, sit in the stands with the AFHS Band during the game, and enjoy light refreshments after the game.  Please see the following Signup Genius if you are willing to help with this event. 

 

Senior Night

Seniors will be recognized during the October 27, 2017 home football game.  Memory boards (and instructions) will be going home with Senior Marching Band members on Thursday, October 5, 2017. We also need a few families of Juniors to help prepare the stadium Friday afternoon, October 27. Please respond to the email sent 10/01/2017 if you can help.

 

Band Trip

We are planning a band trip to Disney World during Spring Break 2018.  It will involve a “clinic” or class with a Disney conductor and a march down Main Street during one of the parades.  This is open to ALL band students.  If the student is not a member of the marching band, he/she will be fitted with a band uniform and will be required to march during the parade. 

We are working with a travel agent on transportation, housing, food, and other details.  This will determine the travel dates and cost.  We will share details as soon as they are finalized. 

 

Fundraising

Because of the trip, we will be doing additional fund raising this year.  As a new, non-profit organization we are not allowed to have “student accounts” where individual families can bank money toward their child’s trip. Instead profits from any trip fundraiser will go to reducing the overall cost.  We will let you know which ones will be for the trip and which will be for the general band fund.
