During 8th Grade Night, we treat your children as actual members of the band for the entire evening. They will warm up, march in, play during the game, march out, and remain in the band room for closing comments with Mr. Williams and Mr. Pannell. Just like our current band members, they will not be allowed to visit the concession stand, wander off, or leave early. This experience is designed to give students first hand knowledge of what it is like to be a NCHS Marching Warrior. With that being said, please remind your student that they must obey all Cobb County rules, as this is a school function.
What to Wear and Bring with You
- Wear your NCHS Band T-shirt and jeans (no shorts).
- Bring your instrument labeled with your name, phone number, and school.
- Bring a jacket (please label with your name and phone number).
- If you have asthma, bring your inhaler.
- You do not need to bring money! We will provide everything the student needs (dinner and refreshments).
