Lesson Money: If I do not receive your monthly lesson money by the 10th of each month,
there will be a $5.00 late fee added. If you will not see me by the 10th of the month, please mail your lesson
money to me. You pay for 4 lessons per month, whether you attend or not. You can not skip a month without
paying. If you do happen to miss a lesson, you will be taught what you missed when you return. This is a standard
used by all baton studio's.
Hair and Make-up: Parents, make sure the hair piece is pinned in place by crisscrossing with many long bobby pins.
This will prevent the hair piece from falling out during parades. Also, bangs and sides are to be sprayed back
with hairspray. There is to be no loose hair. Parents, make sure the girls wear red lipstick that can be seen
by the audience and judges. The same goes for blue eyeshadow. Remember, no nail polish, earrings or
jewerly of any kind. Please arrive at all parades prepared to march.
Dress: Don't forget to make sure shoes, shoe strings, socks and batons are clean and look like new. Seniors
must wear black underwear.
Parents, Family and Friends: Enjoy the parade on the parade route, but please, NO walking along side the troop.
Someone will remain with your child at the end until you are able to arrive or you may wait at the end of the parade.
Weather: All parades are held rain or shine. If the rain is too heavy or there is lightening, we will not
march, but you cannot tell what the weather will be like from one minute to the next. Just like the North Canton parade,
the weather cleared once we arrived. If we ever cancel a parade due to weather, we will try to contact you or you may
call your "calling mom" if in doubt. Make sure they have their number/cell number.
Lessons will be held in the park pavillion if it rains. Lessons are never cancelled.
Troop members: Yoy must work on picking your feet up higher, smile and do your head turns while marching.
Color Guard Uniform Rental: Those of you who still owe the $25 rental fee for the uniform must pay.
Give money to Carol or your marching mom. Please put money in envelope with your name on it.
Drum Corp: We are one of the few groups that still use live music. While it is easier to stick in
a CD, it is classier to have live music. At the same time, it is hard to find students who wish to play. If you
know anyone who would like to play, please contact Carol. We have a drum instructor who will work with them. Will
still need 3 more players.
T-shirts: We have T-shirts for sale again this year. We need to turn our order in ASAP. Let
your calling moms know if you would like a shirt, how many and what size. It would be great to have everyone wear them
on bus trips and after parades. Adult and children sizes available.
Congratulations: The troop has done a great job so fair this year. We have won at every
parade. This is the best er have looked for awhile, let's keep up the good work. I am proud of each and everyone
Prepare: Remember to eat sensibly and drink "LOTS" of water before each parade and come rested.
Minis don't forget to go to the bathroom before coming to line-up.
