Congratulations to our Marching Pride Seniors! We hope you and your families enjoyed being recognized at Senior Band Night last Friday. Please help in thanking our SGA, Mr. Brickzin, Mr. Ragusa, and our Band Boosters for all of their help in organizing the event!
Congratulations to our Marchers of the Week: Ellie Carvajal (woodwind), Noah Durik (brass), Rigoberto Tovar (percussion), Isabella Fusco (auxiliary), and Taylor Kissane (officer). Congratulations to our Section of the Week, our Marching Pride Seniors!
Thank you to all of our parents who came out to help with last Friday night’s game, Band Senior Night, and the Collier County Band Show! If you are interested in helping out for this week’s game or Marching MPA, please email Ms. Fuentes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don’t forget that we have rehearsal on TUESDAY and Thursday this week. Krispy Kreme Donut orders are due on Thursday, our Auxiliary Team will perform at Friday’s Pep Rally, and this Friday we are traveling to Golden Gate HS for the Battle of the Gate! This Saturday, we have our District Marching MPA performance at Fort Myers High School. Marching MPA is the culminating event of our entire season. All are encouraged to attend the performance to support the Marching Pride and all of our fellow Collier County High School Marching Bands!
VERY IMPORTANT: Parents please remember that when picking up students from Friday Night’s game and Marching MPA, please wait for students in a parking space or in the student drop off area by the flagpole. Please do not wait in the Faculty Parking Lot along the curb by the double door entrance to the band room. The trailers unload all of the equipment and instruments in that area. Thank you for your cooperation!
