North Cobb High School Band 2016-2017





Dear Warrior Band Family,

 

September is upon us! The students have learned up to the last two sets of the show! We almost have drill for the whole show on the field! The band has been working hard, rehearsing well, and the season is looking good as we head into our Saturday rehearsal. Keep up the great work everyone!

 

Last week, at our first away game of the season, we played Harrison High School. Both bands did an exceptional job at halftime! Halfway through our performance, there was a commotion among members of the Harrison student section. The commotion was due to a member of the North Cobb student section being somewhere he perhaps shouldn’t have been. Understandably, this may have caused concern among members of our community watching the performance unaware of the cause.

 

While we have no control over how others conduct themselves, we can be in control of how we react to it. In fact, it is the only aspect of which we have control. It is easy to allow the first emotion to override our senses and lash out with a strongly worded email or potentially hurtful comments directed at the opposing team or community. We must remember that every word, every interaction, and every post on social media is a reflection on our community and our kids. Be sure to understand the full story of what happened when an issue comes about and please always feel free to come to Mr. Horton, a NC school official, or me before making any direct contact with other principals or administration. We will have a long season, competitively as well as with football, with many situations and events that may or may not go our way. As one of the best communities anywhere, we maintain an air of class by supporting other groups, being kind and respectful, and showing our best self in all situations; even when it is tough to do so.

 

Looking ahead we’ve got a busy few weeks before fall break.

 

Monday (9.12) Booster Meeting 7:30

 

Tues/Thurs: 4-7 Rehearsal

 

Friday (9.16): North Cobb vs. East Coweta - Students will leave school early to make it to East Coweta on Friday. Our incredible crew of parents will provide food for the students at ECHS before the game.

 

Saturday (9.17): 12-9 Rehearsal - We plan to get back late Friday night, so instead of a customary 9-9 rehearsal on Saturday, we are pushing it back to a 12-9. Dinner will be served at 4. An itinerary for both days will be sent via remind and email blast tomorrow evening.

 

Friday (9.23) – NC vs. Pebblebrook (8th grade night!!!)

Thank you for all you continue to do and I say it everyday to anyone who’ll listen: This is one of the best communities ANYWHERE! Mr. Pannell and I are so blessed.

 

All my best,

 

Sheldon Frazier

Director of Bands

North Cobb High School

SENIORS!! WE NEED YOUR PICTURES FOR THE SLIDE SHOW


We are starting early in our quest to obtain pictures of each senior student in order to be properly represented in our year end video. We need three pictures of different ages of your student including one current photo.
You have three options of handing these photos in.
1) You can put the originals in a clearly labeled envelop with your student's name and place it in the photo drop box at the back of the band room. (Originals will be returned to you in the same condition you submitted them)
2) You can place the pictures on a DVD or CD also clearly labeled with your student's name and place that in the photo drop box
3) You can email the pictures directly to the Photography/Video committee at nchsbandseniors@gmail.com.

THANK YOU!!!



Request of Water Donation


Another marching band season is here and we are making plans for another great year! If you have not heard, we have 232 band members this year! To make sure we can provide for all of these students, we are asking that each student donate a flat of bottled water to be used for the students at games and competitions. We will be giving a due date for each section to bring the water since we have a storage issue. We are requesting: 

         • 16.9 FL oz. bottles 

         • A flat of 24 count or greater 

         • Any brand of bottled water 

Thank you for supporting the North Cobb High School Marching Band!
