Our 21 year participation streak in the oldest Memorial Day Parade in the United States has been saved. The NRHS MMW Band will be marching in the Memorial Day Parade in Portsmouth, VA on Monday. We are near the front of the parade so we must be on time. The uniform will be the NEW band t-shirts “Excellence is the Standard,” NEW baseball caps, black shorts and black shoes with black socks. Also bring your flash gloves, ($5 for replacement gloves), New band members must have a written permission slip in order to participate. Parents must provide a written permission slip for students to participate. Handwritten permission slips will be accepted. All students MUST ride to the parade and back to school on the bus for insurance purposes.
Band members should be in the NRHS band room NLT 8 a.m. on Monday, May 27, 2013. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. We will be returning to Nansemond River by 12:30 p.m.
