August 21, 2019

I LOVE Friday Night Lights! Time for all the hard work to be put on display!!!  Lots of important information below. Please take time to read it carefully.

Friday’s game is AWAY (Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa).  We will feed students before game (Zaxby’s) and after the game (Jason’s Deli).  Help students to remember appropriate under-uniform attire (Instrumentalists-athletic shorts, t-shirt, LONG BLACK SOCKS).

REMINDER!!!! We rehearse again on Monday of next week our second of only 4 Monday practices this season!).  It is so important that everyone attend our after-school rehearsals.  The students meet separately in 5 different classes during the school day, making after-school rehearsals our only opportunity to combine forces!  We had WONDERFUL rehearsals this week with EXCELLENT attendance. Keep it up!!!!

I still need 5 equipment loaders for this Friday night.  Please sign up here…(SIGN UP TO LOAD!)

We need your help in many ways!

  • Remember that every family is required to serve two shifts in the concessions stand to meet your volunteer obligation. There are opportunities on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Friday throughout the season.  We can accommodate your busy schedule!
  • We also have opportunities to assist with Uniform Washing, Hospitality and Chaperone/Pit Crew!
