WELCOME MARCHING FAMILIES!

 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

Thank you to all the instrumental music students and their families that joined us for our Wolf-Tones tradition to kick off the new year with a BBQ and an opportunity to welcome returning and new families to the new year’s instrumental music program!  We all enjoyed the entertainment provided by an Orchestra Ensemble, a Jazz Combo, and the Marching Wolves!

 

NCS Playoff Game @ Pittsburg High – November 18

Dear Parents of Marching Wolves,

We are very proud to announce that our football team has been seeded 3rd in the NCS playoff standings and will be playing the number 2 seed, Pittsburg High School on Saturday, 11/18 at 7pm. This match up will be held at the Pittsburg High School stadium since their team is seeded higher than SRV.

The Marching Ensemble will accompany the football team to the venue to support them. We will communicate the call time for the students as soon as we have the final logistics. Please make sure that your student has been fed before meeting at the school. The football team is arranging for the transportation to and from the game for our students and chaperones to accompany the team.

This will be an exciting game and we hope to see you all there to help cheer on the team.

Following is the schedule for Saturday:
5:00 pm – Band room opens
5:15 pm – Roll call
5:30 pm – Load busses
5:40 pm – Depart SRVHS

 

Please make sure your kids are fed before reporting to the school. SRV Marching will not perform during half time but will be performing in the bleachers. Therefore, the kids will not be in uniform and will be supporting the school in more informal attire. They must wear their 2017-2018 band t-shirt & jeans. Also, there is a chance of rain, so please make sure your student brings a sweatshirt or jacket.

 

Wolf-Tones will provide the students with snacks and water for the bus ride home.  The schedule is still fluid; therefore, we will contact you if anything changes.

Thank you,
Kathy Hanze & Linda Dalenberg
