AZMBA Sabino Competition  Results
The marching band’s first full band competition of the 16-17 season was a huge success!! The students earned FIRST PLACE in their division and earned captions for highest scores in General Effect, Visual, and Percussion!! Way to go, HPR!!!

The HPR also has a competition on Saturday, October 22nd, in Phoenix.  More info on this event will be published in a future email.

Volunteers Needed!
We still need parent volunteers to help at the upcoming football games and competitions. Volunteer activities include moving instruments and sound equipment on the field, backdrops, chaperoning on buses at away games, and setting up the bleachers for the band.  If you are planning to come to the game to watch your student perform, please consider helping out. Please email hidden; JavaScript is required, or reply to this email if you can help.

Snack Donations are Accepted and Appreciated!
The students have been enjoying having snacks provided for them during games and at other times as needed. We are running low! If you are out shopping at Costco or another bulk store, please consider picking up something extra for the hard-working band students! Good snack choices are low sugar-high nutritional value, no-mess snacks. Possibilities may include granola bars, pretzels, string cheese, fruits and veggies, etc. A big ‘Thank You’ to those who have already donated!

HPR Rehearsal Schedule
Evening rehearsals for the Horizon Pride Regiment will continue on Mondays and Thursdays, unless otherwise noted in the Band calendar.  Please continue to check the calendar for the rehearsal schedule, as it could change.  Students should be on the field with their instrument at the start time, so show up early. Remember that Marching Band is a class, so attendance at all rehearsals and events is mandatory.
