Pep Band is Not going to Montgomery

Parents and Students,
Thank you to everyone who volunteered to take the Pep Band to Montgomery tomorrow. Unfortunately we do not have enough drivers to make the trip happen. If the boys continue in the Tournament we will plan to travel with them next week to the Final Four. I appreciate everyone who offered to help.

Regards,
Mr. Rogers

Basketball Play-off Update #2

Parents and Students,
We are still in the process of trying to send the Montevallo Pep Band to the Basketball game tomorrow. The trip has been approved, all we need now is volunteer drivers for Transportation. If you are a parent and would be willing to drive please complete the volunteer driver form (Link: Driver Form). Currently we need only a couple more drivers to make this trip a reality. Parents would need to be on campus by 11:30pm and we will return by 5:30pm.
If we have a enough drivers each students will need to turn in the following to go on the trip:

  1. Permission Slip (Link: Play-off Permission Slip)
  2. $8 for admission (There is a high probability that we will not have to pay admission, but until I am given a definitive response be prepared!)
*Students without the two items will not be able to go on the trip.*

Parents have until 7:00 to email me if they can drive. I will post on the blog whether we will be able to make the trip or not at 7:30. Thank you to everyone that has helped with this process today. 

Regards,
Mr. Rogers

Basketball Play-off Game Update

Pep Band,
Unfortunately we will not be able to take a bus to the play-off game on Wednesday. Instead we will have to use volunteer drivers to travel to and from the game. Attached you will find a link to an itinerary/ permission slip and a volunteer driver form. All pep-band members need to complete the permission slip and turn it in to me ASAP. Parents, if you are willing to transport students to the game on Wednesday please complete the volunteer driver form and email it to me with the number of students you can fit in your car. This trip is dependent on having enough volunteer drivers to transport the entire pep band and equipment. At this time I am unclear about the AHSAA guidelines when it comes to pep band. There is also a chance that all pep band members will be required to purchase a ticket for entry into the game.

As I collect information, I will get it out to students and parents as quickly as possible. Please check the Blog frequently for more information.

  • Also this Thursday the Troubadour Auxiliary will be traveling to Montevallo Middle School to host an information session about Auxiliary Try-outs.
