Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. - Elbert Hubbard
We have three performances between now and Saturday. Those performances are the Homecoming Parade (today), the Homecoming Game (tomorrow), & the Preview of Champions competition (Saturday). This afternoon, you need your flip folders & lyres. Your fifth block teachers are aware that you will not be in class, but are instead going straight to the rehearsal hall at the end of lunch. Your schedule is as follows:
12:55 pm.......meet in the rehearsal hall
12:57 pm.......move to the gym
1:05 pm.........time-out tunes as the students enter the gym
1:10 pm.........PEP ASSEMBLY (band on the upper deck. drumline on gym floor - Time-Out Tunes, School Song, Holiday & Cadences)
2:00 pm.........Parade to RCMS & RCES
3:00 pm.........Return to RCHS & dismiss
We may well need a pop up tent tomorrow for the sound system. If your family has one, and would be willing to let us use it, please shoot me a message.
Take a moment tonight to check to make sure you have everything that you need for Saturday's competition. If any part of your uniform is wet after tomorrow's game (either from sweat or from rain) make sure to let it dry over night. Just keep the items in a place where you won't forget them.
Make sure to eat healthy today and tomorrow. Drink plenty of fluids. Get a good night's sleep. I will see you all in a little while!
(For the record, I am digging the extreme spirit wear!)
