10/31: Marching Band Practice

It is a Husky Pride Marching Band to have a “Halloween Rehearsal” on the closest practice to Halloween. It is a day for the students to wear costumes to practice and enjoy the spirit of the season. They also end the evening with a “trick-or-treating” experience with candy.

Due to this year’s Halloween Rehearsal being on Halloween itself, the band will not be given candy following dismissal. This is to allow students to get back home earlier so they may participate in whatever family events are planned for the evening. Due to the tight scheduling of HHS facilities and the impending ABODA State Marching Band Semifinal on 11/5, the rehearsal will not be rescheduled. Students will be dismissed at 6:50 PM.

10/17-10/22 Marching Band Information

As we return from a successful (and hopefully restful) break, we come back to a very busy week for the Husky Pride! Please see below for information concerning the week’s events:

Thursday, 10/20: Hamilton @ Basha (away)

We will not perform the show on Thursday, so we will be in pep gear. Please see the schedule for what to wear. Students will be fed at Basha before the game.

Bands of America – Flagstaff Information

Hello Huskies! We are ramping up to our debut competitive performance this season at the Bands of America – Flagstaff Regional at Northern Arizona University. In this post you will find the schedule, transportation waiver, and other important information to help this week go smoothly. The schedule for the week is as follows:

Monday, 9/26: Marching Band practice; 5-8 PM

Thursday, 9/29: Marching Band practice; 5-8 PM

Friday, 9/30: Marching Band dress rehearsal; 5-6:30 PM (load truck after full runs)

Below is the schedule and the transportation waiver. Remember, you only need a waiver if you intend on picking your student up in Flagstaff, rather than riding the bus home.

Please remind you student to eat breakfast on Saturday, and bring a snack for the bus if they want. It will be cool during the day but cold at night, so have them bring a jacket (the new travel jacket is very warm! 😃). They will need money for dinner at the dining hall, and for concessions/souvenirs in the stadium.

Students have free entrance to the stadium all day, and field crew (pit crew and staff) have access as well. Everyone else will need to buy a ticket for the show, which can be found here:


The livestream video of the performance can be found here:


Homecoming Information and DRIVER NEEDED

Hello Huskies! Please read through the schedule for Friday’s Homecoming game vs Horizon.

We are in need of a truck driver for our Bands of America competition in Flagstaff. If you are able and willing, we would love to have your support in getting the band up the hill! If you would like to help out, please contact Chris Cobb.

Thank you!
