Moe’s of East Gadsden Spirit Night: Be sure to come out to Moe’s in East Gadsden this Saturday and eat to support The PRIDE! The PMA will receive 20% of proceeds for those customers who mention the band. The fundraiser will last from 5 pm until close; if possible, it would be very helpful to have some students and parents wearing their band shirts asking customers to support The PRIDE.
Spaghetti Dinner / Fall Concert: Our annual Fall Concert will be held Monday, Oct. 30th at 6pm in the high school auditorium and will feature both the Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble. This year, we’re also hosting a Spaghetti Dinner at 5pm in the lunchroom before the concert. Tickets have been sold, but plates will be available for $7.50 at the door. The PMA is sponsoring a pumpkin-decorating contest as well. Those who wish to enter a pumpkin should bring their entry to the lunchroom at 4:30. All entries will be assigned a number and will be voted on during the spaghetti dinner. Votes are $1 each; the pumpkin with the most votes will be our winner.
Concert Attire: For the Fall Concert, Symphonic Band members are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes; the Wind Ensemble will dress in an American theme. Students will be fitted in class at the end of the month for their formal concert attire (dresses & tux). More info to come once we have word from our formalwear rep.
Gourmet Meat Sale: On Monday, we will begin a student-sale fundraiser to help students raise money for our Disney Trip & Band Fees. We will be selling gourmet meats from Southern Heritage Farms in Fairhope, AL. Orders will be due Nov. 14th & arrive the week of December 4th.
Southside @ Glencoe 11-3-17: Last week it was announced that the Glencoe game had been moved to Thursday, Nov. 2; HOWEVER, it has now been moved BACK TO FRIDAY, NOV. 3rd at GLENCOE HS. We apologize for any confusion; we do not anticipate the game to be rescheduled again.
