Upcoming Events: Pearl Band Reminders 10/12/14 www.pearlpirateband.org  Dear Parents and Students, First, A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO WORKED YESTERDAY! The day ran very smooth! I sincerely appreciate everyone who worked to make the day great. The students did a wonderful job with their performances and are improving with each day. We now begin our preparations for the BOA trip to Indianapolis and State Marching Championships. Here are a few reminders for the week ahead. Friday is a HOME Football game against Lanier. Students will need to report to the band hall by 5:30 PM. We will march the show at PREGAME on Friday around 6:30 so that we can participate in homecoming festivities at halftime. We will have an afternoon rehearsal on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 13-14 from 2:30 – 5:30 PM. As with all rehearsals, these are required. The homecoming parade will be held Thursday, Oct. 16 and students will need to be at PHS by 5:15 PM for that Parade. We will have our normal Thursday night rehearsal until 9:00 PM following the parade and pep rally. Saints/49ers Raffle Tickets We now have Saints raffle tickets available for sale for $5.00 each. The winner will receive 2 Tickets to the Saints/49ers game on Nov. 9 and a $100 gas card. The tickets are in the lower endzone area.
