Parents & Students,
Welcome to the Blue Sheet - our weekly announcements for Marching Band!! CONGRATULATIONS to all on a strong showing in our first contest of the season. The band finished in 4th in our class - missing 3rd place by less than a point. Special congratulations to our color guard for a superior rating at the first contest, drum majors for 2nd place recognition, and percussion for 1ST PLACE IN CLASS and 3RD OVERALL!!
Special Thank You to all the parents that helped with chaperoning, hydration, and equipment!! We could not do this without you - and we would love to see some new faces the rest of the season - come spend some fun time with the band!!

Thanks for your flexibility with a slightly altered schedule this week. Cross-Country hosts a meet here on Tuesday and this will make their event much easier if we have music rehearsal on Tuesday. Our schedule should not be altered moving forward. We are the homecoming game for Northview HS next weekend - Cambridge will not have an opportunity to perform at this game. Therefore, we will wear jeans and show shirts (jackets if it is cool) and go support our team in the stands. This will make the evening an enjoyable one for volunteers and transportation. Let's have a great couple of weeks getting better and having fun making music.
Our Homecoming plan for the conflict of the October 21 contest will be as follows. We are tentatively scheduled to perform at 5:55 PM. Once our performance is concluded and truck is loaded, students will be able to meet parents at the St. Pius X school drop-off turnaround. More details on the timeline of pickup and where this location is will be made available in the coming weeks. Students may arrange rides with other parents for this occasion - we must have written permission from each student's parent to be released from our supervision and leave the contest for the purpose of attending the homecoming dance. This should all be possible between the hours of 6:45 and 7:15.
As always - thanks for all you do for the Cambridge Bands!!
Ryan Borger & Katie Groves
