NORTH COBB HIGH SCHOOL MARCHIING BAND

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

RAFFLE TICKETS

As of Saturday night we are still missing Raffle tickets from 1/3rd of the band. All tickets MUST be turned in by Thursday. We have a license for this raffle and they can choose to audit us so please turn in all sold and unsold tickets ASAP.  Credits for extra tickets or fundraising fees for those that didn't sell the required 10 tickets will be posted to the accounts by the end of the month.

Drawing for the Raffle will be held this Friday at the game against Marrietta.


FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Thank you parents for all of your support and and assistance!  We are in the midst of competition season and still in need of help in many areas.  Please jump in wherever you can!  We need help with chaperons and front line for the remaining practices, games, and competitions.  There is always something you can do to help!  Please see the sign ups as they come out or just be available to lend a hand when you see a need.  


A note about competitions I would like to make mention of.  Whenever, we are with the parents and supporters of competing bands, let's all be on our best behavior.  Even if others make unkind remarks, let's be kind with ours.  Each band at a competition is made up of students who have worked just as hard as ours, so we want to rise above any disparaging comments that may be made.  It's always better to resist those moments and show why North Cobb has the reputation of having the best boosters!  Remember, our kids are watching and listening. 

Also, when we are away at games or competitions, we want to keep the bus lane clear of parent vehicles when we return.  It is a safety issue for our kids.  We just can't take the risk of buses and trucks coming in late to unload and contending with traffic.  Please respect the wishes of our directors and leaders to keep our kids safe by parking in a space in one of the lots and waiting on your children.  If you are at the school and waiting for your child, help to unload is much appreciated!

Thanks so much for all you do and the support you give!  It is a great pleasure to serve with all of you!

Marc Amason
Band Booster President



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!!


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. 




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

Flutes are asked to bring in their water bottle donatations from October 9th thru to October 15th.

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

CANDY AND GIFT BAG DONATIONS


We are looking for donations of Halloween candy and treat bags so that we can put treat bags together and distribute them to the band students at the game on Friday, October 30th.
