PLACENTIA HERITAGE DAY PARADE

Period 1, Period 2 & Colorguard

Saturday, October 14th

 MORE INFO – CALL TIME IS 7:30a (7:40a for Colorguard) at BYMS

More Info

WE NEED WATER DONATIONS FOR OUR UPCOMING PARADE We need approximately 4 bottles of water per student. We have 110 students in the Placentia Heritage Day Parade and currently have about 100 regular size bottles and 4 or 5 of the 1-gallon size. We would like at least 500 bottles of water for during and after the parade, and 16-1 gallon jugs. Please send in your water donations with your student before or after school so we can keep our students hydrated!

Notes from our Uniform Committee:

1. Black Band bags will be passed out to help kids get organized with their Dinkles and keep their things together.

2. Red Band shirts are in black band bags. The cost of these are covered by Fair Share Donations–please bring in if you have not already.

3. Students are in charge of their garment bags with uniforms and hat box while out at parades. While volunteers are here to help band members, the band members are still responsible for their things. Band members need to put them away correctly BEFORE they are excused to go home.

TUSTIN TILLER DAYS PARADE – RECAP

Thank you to everyone who helped with this day! With no major issues, I can say that our first parade of the year was a major success. All band and colorguard students performed very well and I am proud of each and every one of them. This parade is extra challenging as the competition zone is at the end of the parade, rather than at the beginning. It was a warm day and students gave 110% effort in their performance.
