WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Good afternoon, SP Band!

HOMECOMING WEEK!  We will support the Homecoming Court AND perform WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE during HT this week!

  • We want to thank last week’s HT Sponsor,  Renee Hamilton, ARC Realty.  Thank you, Renee.  We are still looking for a sponsor for this week’s show.  Email cneugent@hoover.k12.al.us if you or someone you know would be interested.
  • The band boosters have created a Marching Band Season T-shirt and it’s currently for sale (Today’s the last day to order!!!).  This shirt can be purchased through My School Fees as you’re paying the fees for your child.  It is listed under “Optional Fees” and is noted as “Band Booster Shirt.” The cost is $15 and is available S-XXL.  Proceeds will go into the general band fund for all students. Please submit orders TODAY!!!  If you have any questions please contact Chad Hewitt at chadh155@gmail.com. 
  • Here is the WEEKLY SCHEDULE. Call time on Friday for all students (In-Person and Virtual Learners) is 4 PM, in performance attire.
  • Instrumentalists will wear their WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE t-shirt, khaki shorts and tennis shoes.  Visual Ensemble students will wear their new uniforms.  Don’t they look awesome!
  • WE NEED 22 CONCESSIONS  STAND WORKERS for FRIDAY’S GAME!!!   Each family is REQUIRED to serve 2 shifts in our CONCESSIONS STAND (SIGN UP HERE FOR VARSITY).  

Masks are required, social distancing will be super important and our Concessions Chairs have worked tirelessly all summer to ensure we can do this SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY for both YOU (our volunteers) and our CUSTOMERS.  

We have CASHLESS options, creating multiple REMOTE POINTS of SALE to limit the folks in the stand, and limiting our food choices to keep things SAFE and EASY.

We also provide CONCESSIONS for JV/9th Grade Games (SIGN UP HERE FOR JV/9th GRADE).

A Note from Concession Chair: We have tremendous need for this week’s game, https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0A4BA9A62AA6F85-20202 Particularly the second shift!  Please consider helping out!   Please don’t forget to wear a hat and mask for every shift.  We will limit the number of folks in the actual concession stand area and will be selling at multiple places throughout the stadium.  Thanks!  Dave Luthin, Concessions Chair (Cell: 205-329-3333)

  • The HOMECOMING game is another opportunity to sign up to CHAPERONEWe especially need help with EQUIPMENT!!! Unfortunately, chaperoning DOES NOT count toward your CONCESSIONS SHIFT.  But it is FUN and you play a HUGE role in helping ensure our students are SAFE and represent our community, school and families with CLASS and DISTINCTION. (SIGN UP HERE)

A Note from Chaperone Chair: We are in desperate need of volunteers for the loading crew. Please consider supporting your band member by taking advantage of this opportunity.If you have any questions you can email me at kimberlyholifield76@gmail.com or Ms. Helena Young at Hyoung@hoover.k12.al.us.

  • A friendly reminder that our after-school rehearsals are being held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4-6 PM.  These rehearsals are MANDATORY and we need full attendance in order to prepare our field show.
  • HCS is preparing to move to 5-day in-person instruction! We will alter our after-school schedule to accommodate this change beginning September 21.  Please check out our calendar at www.spainparkband.org/calendar for a look at our upcoming schedule.
