Walking towards the stadium for the first time this season it was hard to believe there are only two weeks until the first game. I came down to the school, like many other band parents, to enjoy the Parent Preview of this year’s show. I passed a group of students talking and laughing while surrounding the Kona Ice truck in a bid to be the next one for a well-deserved refreshing treat. As I got closer to the stands I could easily hear Mr. Dell over the speaker and I could see students in blue and students in purple rehearsing their steps. I was searching the field for my child and realized all I needed to do was look for the cluster of pink. There she was, in the stands, enjoying her own Kona Ice, sitting in the midst of her fellow trumpeters, all in pink. The color coordinating helps the section leaders quickly and easily locate their team. The colors are also used in other areas such as the uniform room to help keep the uniforms organized by section which allows for less chaos on game days. Whether the kids realize it or not, the colors also help foster a sense of community and pride (Go Pink!). After saying hello to my daughter I took my seat and waited for her and her troupe to take their places.

I always love watching the choreography of the show and how precise and sharp everything looks on game day or at competitions so I wasn’t sure what to expect during a rehearsal. I was not disappointed. In the span of two weeks, these amazing students have learned so much! They spent these last two weeks learning the music and spending what I’m sure felt like endless hours out in the hot sun rehearsing the drill. I had to leave before the entire band was on the field and even before I got to hear a single note played, but there is no doubt in my mind that all of their hard work is going to pay off in a big way! I’m looking forward to August 24th. Here’s to another great year and a magnificent new show!

Support PHS Band Through Amazon Smile
Support Our Band!

If you have never heard of it before AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

Unfortunately, you cannot use Amazon Smile with the Amazon App on the iPhone or Android. However, the good news is that you can set up a shortcut to the Amazon Smile website which gives a near identical experience to the app. It’s very quick and easy to do.

  1. Visit https://smile.amazon.com/ch/81-4538880 in your internet browser.
  2. When Amazon opens, you will be asked if you would like to choose or change your charity to Plant HS Band Booster Association, Inc. Select yes.
  3. If you are in the Amazon app, you will want to select to open in Safari.
  4. For Android, once you are open to Amazon on an internet browser, select the menu button in the top right corner.
  5. Next, hit Add to Home Screen.
  6. For iPhone, once you are open to Amazon on an internet browser, hit the share button at the bottom middle of your screen.
  7. Now click add to Home Screen. You have just created a shortcut to the Amazon Smile page to easily navigate here from the homepage.
  8. This will allow you to shop just as if you were using the app except you will be supporting Plant Band by using this new link.
  9. Finally, delete your existing Amazon App so you will always shop with a smile.
  10. Be sure to make these changes on all your devices (phone, tablet, desktop).

PHS Veteran's Day Concert

Veteran’s Day Concert

Due to apparent conflicts with the auditorium at Plant, this year’s Veteran’s Day Concert was held at Robinson High School. As it so happened, The RHS Marching Knights also had their Fall concert scheduled for this evening. No problem. We can fit. And we did.

As the name of the concert implies, tonight’s concert was a salute and tribute to our Veterans, as well as all military personnel, past and present.
