NOTE: Time Change!
As of right now, the game has been moved up one hour to 6pm. Knightpride will move the entire itinerary up one hour. Musicians should arrive at FHN for practice at 3:00 instead of 4:00, etc.
For the Middle School guests, we’ll invite them to come in for refreshments during the 3rd quarter instead of before the game.
Mr. Stegeman has published the itinerary for next Friday night’s football game (which happens to be Middle School Night – so we will have honored guests). Click the image to download a PDF copy.
