Band and Guard students will take their official yearbook group photo on Monday, October 28th.  Students arrive at 8 am, get into uniform, and head to the stadium for pictures.  


8 am    Students arrive with Black Shoes, Black Socks, Gloves – yes, we CAN see

            Your shoes and socks in the picture.

Get into uniform.   No hats, no instruments, except for tubas and drum line.

Hats with plumes will be provided to students standing in strategic locations

in the picture.

Guard, wear field show costumes.  You are included in the full marching

band photo and will also take a separate group photo, guard only.

Picture order forms can be found on the table near the whiteboard.  Parents, orders must be handed in at the time pictures are taken, so make sure you have your student bring home an order form BEFORE the 28th or make sure you come pick up an order form before then.   Also, please discuss with your student if you want them to take individual and/or buddy pictures.   There were a few last year who didn’t know you paid for those extras, and some who absolutely refused to take them even though you paid for it.  Don’t waste the money or our time if they don’t care to do it.

A copy of the order envelope can be found in the HHSMB website under forms, so you know the pricing.  You can send a check, made payable to “Lifetouch Sports” for the total amount of photo packages ordered, and trust your student to complete the order envelope correctly if you don’t get an envelope before picture day.

Please look in volunteer spot for opportunities to help out Monday morning, with uniforms, crowd control, and order handling.

Please contact me at if you have any questions.
