All Marching Band and Color Guard Parents,

We need more parents to volunteer to help with this season’s Pit/Props Crew at home games and Saturday competitions.  The need is especially great with the home football games/performances.

The Pit/Props Crew transports the props (essentially field decorations that enhance the students’ program – called “THERMOPYLAE” this year) onto the performance field just before the band performs and then back off the field once the band is finished with the program.

This season, the props consist of nine large (8’ x 20’) painted vinyl sheets laid flat on the field, 12 golden shields with weighted stands and a fanciful raised platform for the soloist.

The Pit/Props Crew will also be responsible for moving the sound equipment into and out of the Pit area.

Upcoming games/performances are on October 1st, 15th and 22nd.

The competitions are scheduled for October 9th, 23rd and 30th.

We have a couple of Pit/Props Crew rehearsals scheduled with the first one taking place tonight, September 29th, at 7:30 pm.

Please consider spending one or more of these Friday nights or Saturdays with your band or color guard son or daughter.  You will never meet a nicer group of teenagers (or band parents)!

If you have any questions or would like to sign up, please email me at or call me at 503.625.1141 or 503.407.8830.

Thank you,

Michelene Hille

VP of Marching Band, SHS Band Boosters
