Help us welcome 8th grade band students from Sandy Springs Middle School this Friday night as we host our annual 8th Grade Night. Students participating will be treated to a pizza dinner with members of our Marching Spartans Band and will be invited to play special music selections with the Marching Spartans Band. It's a fun night and a great chance to share with our middle school students how much we love being in the North Springs marching band! Go to our website for more details:
We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help with table decorations for Senior Night. At Senior Night, seniors & their parents are honored with a catered dinner and pre-game ceremony.  We would like to have the dinner tables decorated with a simple centerpiece or table decoration but need a volunteer or two to help with this. Your ideas for the table decorations are welcome!  You will be reimbursed for the cost of the decorations. Please contact Sharon Gilbert if you can help with this: or 770-364-8564.

Plans for the Homecoming Parade have been confirmed for Saturday, October 31 at 10:00 am.

Here’s the schedule:

·    8:45 am to 9:10 am – the band room will be open for students to pick up uniforms and instruments.
·    9:30 am – line up at Woodland ES dressed in full uniform with instrument.
There is no bus for this. Students will need to work out their own transportation (drive, parent drop off, carpool). Several of us walked last year – it’s an easy 10-15 minute walk.
·   10:00 am - parade starts
The band is usually in the front.
We will march down Spalding from Woodland ES to North Springs.
·     10:20 am (approx.) – arrive at North Springs.
The band room will be open for students to return uniforms and instruments.  The students are dismissed once everything is packed up.


Mr. Brown would like to recognize the following band students for their recent accomplishments:
·   Nicole Register was accepted into the Metropolitan Atlanta Youth Wind Ensemble.
·   Allison Sinatra and Mekhi Gladden were accepted into the Emory Youth Symphony.
·   Mekhi Gladden and Nina Qin were accepted into the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra.
