Senior Night Info – November 1

Seniors, you should have received an email from Mrs. Walker with a link to fill out the “Senior Night Information Form” on the band website. This form gives us the info we need in order to make sure you’re properly announced on Senior night. You can fill out the form by clicking here. A few important tidbits about Senior night:

Please note: Any senior participating must be academically eligible to do so as this event occurs at a UIL football game.

Pre-Game

As we did last year, all organizations will recognize its Seniors in the same manner at the Pre-Game ceremony.

Each Senior band member, accompanied by parents (or guardians) will be recognized at Pre-Game. Seniors will line up on the North end zone and parents will line up at the south end zone at 6:55pm. The presentation will start at 7:00pm. All Band Seniors and parents will line up in alphabetical order (by last name) and prepare to be escorted down the field. Parents and Senior will walk down the field from opposite ends, meet at the 50 and then walk between the Eaglettes and Cheerleaders before lining up on the track. After everyone from all of the organizations have been recognized, seniors will be dismissed to join the parents in the stands.

It has been requested that band parents wear a Band T-Shirt, polo or some other kind of GEB gear.

The practice for this event is: Friday, November 1st at 8:00am in the stadium. All parents who will escort a senior need to be present at this practice. (I know it’s really inconvenient… I don’t set the time for the rehearsal)

Pep-Rally

As is tradition, there will be a Senior Parent portion of the Pep-Rally this Friday where you will have the opportunity to “perform” proudly before the RHS Community. Information regarding this event was sent out in a separate email by our Senior Reps and Mrs. Walker. Please contact her directly (president@richardsonband.org) with any pep-rally related questions. Unlike the Pre-Game ceremony, the Pep-Rally portion is completely optional but due to the comedy it brings us all, it is highly encouraged.

Halftime

Seniors will vote to determine which portion of the show will be marched that evening. Before the start of the show, seniors will come to the front of the field to meet the drum majors for the Senior Salute. Following the salute, the band will perform the chosen movement(s) of the half-time show. Additionally, the seniors will be designated by being the only ones wearing baldrics this evening.

The announcement of the Band Beau and Sweetheart will occur at halftime as well.

Post Game

After the game, we will play the fight song  and Alma Mater and do the full dismissal, after which you will be released to the field to participate in the Senior Walk. The Senior Walk takes place roughly 5-10 minutes after the completion of the game and you will no problem getting to the field from the stands in time.

We’re all looking forward to another great Senior Night!
