We are working really hard to get a new show ready for Friday!!!
THURSDAY- The Marching Rockets will perform at the homecoming parade. The bus leaves at 5:30. Parade starts at 6 in Owensville. Afterwards, band members must change out of uniform and may depart or attend the bonfire. The band room will be closed after the parade.
FRIDAY-The Marching Rockets are at home this week to support our CNE Rockets as they take on the Indians of Hillsboro. Rehearsal starts at 5:30 on the practice field. We will change into uniforms and parade in the stadium by 6:40. Students should eat before they arrive. They will have a break during 3rd quarter to visit the restroom and concession stand.
We also have a bake sale during home games. We ask for band families to please bring packaged baked goods in 50 cent portions. They can be dropped off by students before practice at the table in the front of the band room.
Fundraising: We are planning a Florida tour for the Spring of 2019. Now is the time to start fundraising. The cost of the trip will be $950 per band member. WE NEED CONCESSION WORKERS NOW!!! If adults have any thoughts of chaperoning this trip, they need to be spending time with the band and kids by working fundraisers, band camp, etc.
We need help with the following shifts
4 Shifts @ Football FRI 9/22 5:30
2 Shifts @ Soccer WEDS 9/27 4:00

Clermont Northeastern has made a focus on raising our academic achievement. Students that are not academically eligible to perform with the band (passing 5 classes for 4th quarter) are still allowed to practice with the band. They are not allowed to perform or travel with the band until they are passing five classes on the next grading period.
