Dear Creekview Band Friends and Family,

WHAT AN EVENING! Congratulations to the Creekview HS! Football, Band, Chevals, Cheer, students, volunteers and everyone who participated in Friday’s game! It seemed like a game to cancel, but you hung in there and displayed a strong sense of flexibility and spirit! We had an amazing game and showcased our wonderful students of the CHS BAND! Very exciting and even more so – looking forward to a great Homecoming week!

PONCHOS: by now you should have dried your ponchos. Be sure to write your name on the poncho with a sharpie. Fold it as neatly and compact as you can and place it in your duffel bag should we need to use it later this season. *if you don’t have a clear poncho, this is the time to secure one that will match with the band. Please do not allow yourself to be the exception. The expectation is for everyone to have a CLEAR poncho for rainy performances.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS: Join us and meet many of our amazing band families through volunteer work, and regular attendance at our practices, games, contests and band socials! Fill out the MANDATORY cfb background check form – this is required for all persons helping at any chs band event.

HOMECOMING GAME!!

Save a spot and come see the CHS Band parade down Peters Colony! Come out and cheer your Mustangs as we pep up the crowd for our Homecoming! All Students will need to turn in their parade field trip form in order to leave class and participate.

Homecoming Parade – Friday 2pm – Peters Colony

Homecoming Peprally – Friday 3pm – CHS large gym

Pre game performance – Friday 6:30pm (approximately) Standridge Stadium

CiCi’s Pizza party – Friday 10:30pm – 12pm (Cici’s on Old denton/hebron)

PIZZA PARTY AT CICI’S FOR THE CREEKVIEW BAND! ALL INVITED – This is a great tradition of the band program to go celebrate and relax together at Cici’s after home games when we don’t have an immediate event coming up the following morning! This is one of those and we have a tradition of having STUDENTS & PARENTS & SIBLINGS/FRIENDS attend this awesome party! We will be driving to cici’s directly from Standridge once we finish the game and will be there till about midnight! You’re all welcome to this HUGE event. GO ahead an plan NOW to be there with all your family and friends! Don’t miss out!!

We’re looking forward to an amazing evening! Students will be wearing their Summer uniforms for the final time. Show shirt and Khaki shorts. We are waiting on uniforms for some students, a couple of items that have been ordered and will begin our distribution of ordered items next week. Thank you for your support as we seek to keep our students from exposure to high heat and humidity early in the marching season. More information about the use of full uniforms will be coming out next week.

MUMS: We’re excited for all the students! ** ADVICE - we have seen much better success when the students have a neck strap to hold their mums vs. pins. We’ve found that pins ruin their clothing and uniforms. Pins are not a good idea – be sure to plan for a comfortable neck strap to wear them! Mums and spirit garters are welcome in the STANDS but not during performance.

Homecoming Parade Release Forms: We’ll be passing these out and sending out an email – we need one from all students in order to be allowed to march in the Homecoming parade on Sep 14th

Plan to wear your best CHS RED to Homecoming, games and our contest! - don’t be shy! cheer for your mustangs every time you see something you like! The louder your cheer is the more hype the kids will get!

Game Day: This week will be our first HOME GAME –We will have a parade, and peprally then eat dinner/ inspection and dismiss for Standridge. All Students will need to bring their materials: flip folders and water jugs and (ponchos when weather). It is the students responsibility to stay Hydraded throughout the game with their own water jugs. Remember that if you wish to purchase a game day meal, you can have your child bring $6.00 by Wednesday – communicate with the Directors!

Transportation: CFB does not provide BUS transportation for HOME games/contests. Parents will need to be ready to transport or have secured transportation for their kids from CHS to Standridge Stadium. They will have from 5:30pm – 6:10pm to drive and get dropped off. (if students forget something at home, this is a time you can bring those things to them, before Standridge).
