Drive Thru Trick or Treat - we need candy
We are asking each TFB family to bring one bag of candy to the band room by Monday morning so that we can have goodie bags ready to distribute to our visitors who come by the TFB Trick or Treat Drive Thru Event!
Reminder: Senior Night
This is a reminder that Thursday, 10/29 is our TFB Senior Night! We will once again recognize each Senior in the band and have them escorted down the field by their parent(s)/guardian(s). Professional pictures will be taken; please plan accordingly.
We would not be able to have a season if it were not for three very important individuals who advocated for us. Please join us in sending an email of gratitude to Mr. Aydellott (Fine Arts Chair), Dr. Pantall (FHS Principal), and Mr. Golden (WilCo Superintendent). Please feel free to copy/paste this short note below and personalize as you see fit. Their email addresses are as follows:
Dear Mr. A, Dr. Pantall, and Mr. Golden,
Thank you for always supporting and advocating for the Fine Arts in Williamson County and The Franklin Band, in particular. Without your leadership, we would not be able to have our current Marching Band Season. After watching other nationally-ranked bands from across the country, I now realize how lucky we have been that supportive administrators have fought to allow our entire band to rehearse together (with safety protocols, of course). This has allowed for my child(ren) to experience a sense of normalcy and community during this time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
An Awesome Band Parent
