NORTH COBB HIGH SCHOOL MARCHIING BAND

WHO'S THE BEST BAND?
NORTH COBB BAND!
GO WARRIORS!



ATTENTION ALL SENIORS AND SENIOR PARENTS


Traditionally the end of the year slide show concludes with a tribute to the graduating seniors. The tribute includes 3 photos. Ideally I would like ;

One baby picture,

One toddler picture AND

One favorite current photo or I can use one from senior night with their parent(s) or escort.


Don't stress if you don't have all these exact pictures. For example if you don't have a good baby picture, you can use a toddler picture. We just want to have a range of ages.


The photo Scan be in any format that you have available; prints or digital media. I would prefer JPG's on a CD or DVD that I don't have to return to you, but I will happily accept any format that you have. It is more important to get the pictures to me as quickly as possible. I can scan originals and will handle them with great care and make sure you get them back in the same condition you sent them.


When selecting pictures, make sure you keep them 'G' rated. I can't use naked toddlers, provocative poses or potty training shots. The idea is to honor your student. I will return all photos received after I have received ALL senior pictures.


To submit your pictures you can;

Drop them in the photo drop box in the band room or,

Email them to me at tur389@aol.com


Every year I ask for these pictures in October and I appreciate those of you who get them turned in on time. However, every year it seems that there are a few that wait till a few days before the band banquet to get them turned in. Please don't be that person. Please send me your photos as soon as possible. If you can get them to me by Thanksgiving break I would truly appreciate it.


Thanks,

Jon Turner

North Cobb Photo Leader


FROM OUR DIRECTOR


Well, the show is finally complete and it is Amazing.  I am so proud of the product that we have all created.  Special thanks to all of you who contributed in some way to make this show so wonderful.
Our kids have worked so hard and it shows in their performance.  They all perform with a passion and intensity that can be felt in the show and translates well to the audience.  I hope we can be the crowd favorite. 
Everytime the kids perform it just makes me feel great.  This year has truly been a “Gift”.
Let’s finish strong!!!
Who’s the Best Band, North Cobb Band!!

Sincerely,
Greg Williams


COMPETITION RESULTS

We had a great time at the Blue Ridge Marching Festival this past Saturday! The kids did an amazing job!

We want to congratulate them all for their effort and hard work.

Congratulations to our Color Guard who took first place!

Congratulations to our Drum Majors who took Second Place!

And Congratulations to the entire band who placed third overall!

We are so proud of you!!

My apologies to our Drum Line for not including them in the last news letter! They also took Second Place at the Blue Ridge Marching Festival!


We also had a very successful night last night at the Cobb County Exhibition held at McEachern High School. This was a chance for the bands to perform their shows before their peers.

The kids did an amazing job as always and their show was spectacular. 


RAFFLE DRAW

The drawing for the raffle ticket prizes was held at Friday night's game against Marietta. All of the winners have been contacted and some of the prizes have already been distributed. Thanks to all of you who worked so hard at selling the tickets and a BIG thank you to those of you who supported our NCHS band by purchasing them.




WATER DONATIONS
To make sure we can provide bottled water for all of our students, we are asking that each student donate a flat of bottled water to be used for the students at games, and competitions. The month of October is very busy with games, competitions and exhibitions, so we need a lot of water to help us make it through. 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

COLOR GUARD are asked to bring in their water bottle donatations from October 19th thru to October 23rd.

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