Great Day at District Marching MPA

It was a great Day for The Pride of Kathleen Marching Band. Wonderful performance by all the students, a chance to see bands we normally wouldn’t get to see and ending the night with a performance from the USF Herd of Thunder Marching Band! We are on the road now and our ETA back at the school is 10:25. The trailer will be back before us and unloaded so we won’t have that much to do. Thank you for your patience tonight so we can get the band room ready for Monday.

Please hug your kids tonight and tell them you are proud of them. I certainly am!!!

Remember: No school on Monday, October 17th! Looking for something to do?

Okay Thrillseekers!

1. Anyone willing to do some work around the band room can do so tomorrow between 10am and 2pm.

2. Tomorrow night at 7:30pm, The Hollingsworth Winds Will perform their fall concert at 7:30pm in Branscomb Auditorium at Florida Southern College. KHS Pride Members: YOU CAN GET EXTRA CREDIT FOR ATTENDING THIS CONCERT!!! Bring your program up to myself or Miss Nennig so we can sign it and then turn it in to me at school during class Tuesday or before rehearsal Tuesday night! Conductors will be Mr. Ivan Wansley, Mr. Don West, and Mr. Bob Thurston, who just worked with you last week. Mr. Jim Parker, our announcer for the concert, will be conducting the Star Spangled Banner.

Band Practice Cancelled for Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Due to the Polk County School Board cancelling all after-school activities tomorrow, including re-scheduling all J.V. Football Games, I have decided to cancel our night practice. Once school dismisses at 2:00 p.m., all students should go home and not stay after school. If the School Board doesn’t want any students doing anything after-school, I feel it better to side with caution and keep everyone at home!

Once again, Practice on Thursday evening, September 1st HAS BEEN CANCELLED!!!


Parents…I need your help! I need a couple of volunteers to help us get our library cataloged and organized. If you are fairly organized, can type and can use Microsoft Excel, You can become the band’s new best friend! Please email or call me at the band room and we can set up a schedule.

Band Practice Tonight


5:30-8:00 P.M.

We will be working on marching basics and music while getting
more members fitted for uniforms and finishing any shoe and glove sizing!
