Hey Parents! Looking for a night with no cooking? Bring the whole family to the annual Taste of Seminole, held in the SHS gym on Thursday, October 19th from 6-8pm. This features dozens of local restaurants serving sample sized portions of their signature dishes. Cost is $25 per person, which allows you to sample each and every restaurant's delicacies! But the best part is, that $20 gets donated to our very own 4A Academy! Come on out and enjoy great food, and then watch the runthrough when you're done! Make sure to fill out the form and note that you're with 4A !



It's so hard to believe that it's time already....Senior Night is upon us! For those who don't know, Senior Night is being held on October 27 at the home football game. It is a special evening during which we honor our Seniors and their families, in appreciation for all that they have contributed to the program during their four years. It includes a special half-time ceremony in which the seniors walk across the field with their families, a reception for them following the game, and small gifts for the seniors. It's a truly great night - but we need your help! 


For Senior Families: Attached is a form that we need each and every senior to complete and turn in to Meg Hall no later than Monday, October 16th. Without this form, your senior will not be announced as they cross the field, so please make sure you get these in on time! Family members walking with seniors should check in at the table next to the ticket booth, and Mom and Dad, you will receive a special token of appreciation at that time! You may sit wherever you wish during the game, but about halfway through the second quarter, an announcement will be made for you to make your way onto the track behind the goal post nearest to the school. When you gather there, someone will meet you to arrange families into alphabetical order. You will be led to the visitors side during half time, and once you cross the field, you will pause for a photo with the esteemed Mr. Madrinan, Dr. Brittain, and other staff members where applicable. You will proceed to the sideline, take a group photo, and then return to the stands to enjoy the game, and of course, the performance of Between Minds after the game! 


For ALL OTHER FAMILIES: We need your help! In order to make this night special for senior families, we do not want them volunteering in concessions, chaperoning, or otherwise working in any capacity! We also need food donations for the reception following the game. These donations should be heavy appetizers or casseroles, along with snacks and drinks. 


This same evening will also be Middle School Night - Middle School students from Seminole Middle and Osceola Middle will be attending and sitting in the stands with our band, and even joining in with some stand tunes. We will also give them a small welcome reception when they arrive, and will need volunteers to help with that as well.  


Please sign up below to volunteer and send in a dish! 


Food Donations & Senior Night Volunteers




Chaperone & Prop/Pit

Dinner for the 9-9 rehearsal on Saturday will be provided by Hungry Howies. (thank you, Bill Kaiser!!) Each student eating will receive 2 slices of cheese or pepperoni pizza, salad, and cinnamon sticks, along with a drink. Cost for this meal is $5, and Renee Hall will collect this on Saturday morning before rehearsal starts. (similar to the process at Band Camp). If your student will be eating pizza, please make sure they notify Meg Hall at the end of practice on Friday night, so that we order the proper amounts. If your student would like more than two slices, they can let Meg know that they'd like to order two meals, and their amount will be $10. If your student does not like pizza, please plan to drop food off for them at 5pm, or have them pack something for dinner.  EVERY student should plan to pack and bring their own lunch for that day. THANKS!  

The following rehearsals have been added to make up for lost time due to hurricane Irma. This additional practice time will facilitate us meeting our season goals. 

Saturday, 9/16:  5-9p

Friday, 9/22: 5-9p

Saturday, 9/23:  9-9

Saturday, 10/7: 9-9

We have done this a few times in the past and it has been a big success! All you have to do is set up in parking lot area on Saturday, August 26 starting at 7am and sell, sell, sell! All proceeds from your garage sale go directly to your fair share! Please click the link below to sign up. If you have any questions, contact


Seminole Sound is quickly approaching and these are two items we are in dire need of borrowing for the day:


  Seminole Sound brings a few thousand people, and we use areas surrounding the high school for set up, staging, etc. We have 12+ other chairpersons heading up areas like Parking Control, Crowd Control, Staging, Water Tent, and so much more that are in dire need of a golf cart to be able to manage their duties that day. We have secured a couple of carts from gracious band parents and from neighboring schools, however we need a couple more. We will gladly pick up the cart and deliver the cart back to you in the same condition it was borrowed in. If you have a cart that you are willing to loan or you know someone, can you let us know as soon as possible. Please email Kim Bernstein @ if you have a cart or know someone she can contact!




When visiting bands come in, they unload and warm up across the street at Bauder. We use trucks pulling open, flatbed trailers to transport Front Ensembles across the street to our stadium.


If you have a truck with a trailer hitch, or if you have a trailer, or best yet, if you have both – WE NEED YOU! This would be considered the Staging area during Seminole Sound, and this is a great job to have – you’d be driving a truck back and forth in the comfort of the AC! We will have the Sign Up Genius out soon to sign up to volunteer for this event, however if you have a truck/trailer and know that this is for you, please email Kim B. at, and she will coordinate.


If you have JUST THE TRAILER that you would allow us to use for the day, we can arrange to have the trailer picked up on Friday 9/29 and delivered back to you on Sunday or Monday after the event. We are in dire need of 12-16 foot flat bed trailers that can haul front ensembles from across the street to our stadium during the entire event. Again, if you have this item that you can loan us, please email Kim B. at and let her know.



Please join us for the Booster Meeting at 7pm on Tuesday, Jul 18th, tentatively in the Chorus Room.
