Marching Band Info for Sept 8

Here is our plan and timeline for our first home game on Friday – go Titans, beat Romeo!!

  • Marchers will be in full uniform for the game (percussion and guard follow your adult instructors’ directions). Full uniform includes: white marching shoes, white socks and marching helmet. The band will provide plumes after dinner (weather permitting). We will not be using gloves. Uniforms may be brought to the Stevenson band room and hung on garment racks starting today.
  • The Stevenson Band Boosters will be selling cookies and other treats during the game this evening. CASH SALES ONLY!
  • Parents – extra hands are requested for these activities: Hanging senior banners on the fence in the stadium (4:30 PM), serving pizza (5:15 PM), helping with crowd control / getting the band in & out of the bleachers (just before kickoff and before/after halftime). If you can help, report to the appropriate spot at the above times. Thank you!
  • Junior High / UAIS Marchers – don’t forget your instruments!
  • Reminder: Students cannot leave early. We are on duty as a full band for the entire game.
  • Game tickets are required for spectators - and cash is not accepted at the gate for tickets (they will have a credit card reader). It is MUCH easier and faster to buy tickets online prior to arriving at SHS:

1:15 PM: Students from Davis, Heritage/UAIS, Jeannette, and the IRC may arrange for early dismissal to get to Stevenson to snake the halls. All marchers, including guard, are invited – this is not mandatory. Transportation to SHS is on your own. Parents should confirm an early dismissal with the attendance line at their school. Enter SHS through the main office.

1:30 PM: Stevenson marchers dismissed from their classes (at their teacher’s discretion) to report to the band room.

1:40 PM: Assemble in the band room, put instruments together, etc.

1:50 PM: Step off / snaking the halls. Wear a Stevenson Band shirt to school that day to snake the halls (we do not wear our full uniforms for snaking the halls).

2:14 PM: Stevenson dismissal. The band room will remain open after school (there will be an adult present).

5:15 PM: Call time for all marching band members.

5:30 PM: Band Boosters will be serving pizza for dinner to marching band members. Marchers – do not eat with your uniform jackets on!
