Upcoming Events: Pearl Band Reminders 10/27/14 www.pearlpirateband.org  Dear Parents and Students, Congratulations to our student on their performance this weekend at the BOA Super Regional in Indianapolis. Our students performed well and had the opportunity to experience the top level of competitive marching band. We are proud of their efforts and will continue to build on what we learned from the weekend. This week is a very important week as we have State Championships this coming Saturday, Nov. 1. As always, each rehearsal this week is important to our success this Saturday. This is the last week of our afterschool marching band rehearsals and each student’s attendance is vitally important as we prepare for Championships. Also, if you as a parent, have not volunteered to help with championships please contact Kenny Pope as soon as possible. We are also in need of food for the hospitality room. Please see Cathi Silence’s information below if you can help with this. We will also be traveling to Ridgeland on Friday for an away football game. Report time is 4:45 PM and students should wear their Gold T-Shirt under their uniform. Students will need money for a meal. Please read below for important and specific details regarding the week ahead.
