8TH GRADE BAND NIGHT

On Friday, October 11th, the 8th grade band will be participating in the annual “8th Grade Band Night” at Beavercreek High School. Students will have the opportunity to come to the high school, rehearse with the Beavercreek High School Marching Band and Color Guard, eat dinner as a group, and perform at the High School Pep Rally just before the evening’s football game. All 8th Grade Band members will need a signed permission form and an Emergency Medical Form to participate in this event. These forms were passed out in class and extras are available in the band room.

Please take a moment to go over the schedule below. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Strickland at mariah.strickland@gocreek.org.
