HPR Rehearsal Schedule

Evening rehearsals for the Horizon Pride Regiment will continue on Mondays and Thursdays, unless otherwise noted in the Band calendar.  The HPR also has rehearsals on Saturday mornings.  Please check the calendar EARLY and OFTEN 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.  

Mark Your Calendar for Thursday, August 28th

The next Band Fans General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the Horizon Band Room.  This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you might have about upcoming Band activities.  We hope to see you there!

First Football Game – Friday, August 29th

Our first football game is at Marcos de Niza on Friday, August 29th.  Call time for HPR students is 4:00pm.

Volunteers Needed!!!

We need parent volunteers to help at the upcoming football games.  Volunteer activities include moving instruments and sound equipment on the field, 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.  All volunteers will get in to the game for free.  Please email hidden; JavaScript is required, if you can help.

Volunteer Of The Year

IMG_0812Congratulations to Neal Deacon for being selected as the Band Fans Volunteer of the Year for the 2013-2014 school year!  Neal began his volunteering by chaperoning band camp in his percussionist son Matt’s freshman year, and he’s made a repeat appearance at band camp every year since (for a total of four). Now wrapping up his fourth year as a volunteer, Neal has chaperoned football games and competitions, volunteered each year for uniform fitting day, driven the equipment truck, served as an essential member of the HPR backdrops team, donated his home each year for the Band Fans holiday party, and donated equipment and materials to the band.  Neal, thank you so much for your support these past four years.  We will miss you!
