Please plan as though we will be attending the game on Friday night, however, when I do learn more information, I will let you know. 
  5. Saturday-On Saturday November 5th, we will load equipment/uniforms for Disney. This will be occurring at 1pm in the Mars High School auditorium lobby. Students are to arrive with their FULL uniform packed in their garment bag. This includes uniform top, bottoms, capes, gauntlets, shako wraps, black shoes, and black socks. There are now also to bring their shakos, as Disney cannot confirm the use of Mickey Ears at this time. Students will also need to bring all parts of their instrument that they will need for the Disney parade. If you are not available during this time, it is your responsibility to have someone drop off your equipment/uniform at this time. 

Have a great week!
