Announcements

Senior Night - is Friday, October 31st during pre-game. All seniors will wear their uniform for pre-game. Seniors, along with their families including parents, siblings, grandparents, etc will be recognized during pre-game and walk the field. There will be a photographer taking pictures (the band will have their own volunteer photographer taking pictures of each senior family). Seniors will then be able to change out of their uniform and into their Halloween costume.

Please email me - boosters@firebirdband.org the name of your senior and the families members who are walking with him/her. Also, if your name is hard to pronounce please provide a phonetic pronunciation for the announcer. We don't have the exact call time for parents to be on the field, but it will probably be sometime between 6-6:20 pm in the east end zone area..

Volunteers - We need underclass (freshman, sophomore, and junior) parent volunteers for pre-game on Friday! Especially to volunteer at our table at Truck or Treat selling 50/50 raffle tickets and kettle korn from 4:45pm - 6:30pm and on the away side concession stand 5:30-7pm. We are asking that parents without seniors volunteer this evening so that the parents with seniors can enjoy pre-game and the football game. We also need volunteers for the home and away side concession stand 7-10pm. If you can help please contact Fabiana at volunteers@firebirdband.org

Trunk or Treat - is sponsored by CHAPTS and is from 5-6:30pm on October 31st. There will be food trucks for you to get something to eat. The band is also going to have a table at this event (all money raised at our table will go to the band) We need one or two 2 people to run this table.

Halloween Candy - The boosters is gathering candy to put in treat bags for the kids after the game on Friday. Fabiana will be collecting donations at drop off and pick up during evening rehearsals on Monday and Tuesday. If you have questions please email her at volunteers@firebirdband.org
