Hello PRIDE of Mayfield,
Please see the below information in case you missed the email that was sent out! Please open the document and click each link.
It is critical that you check the "Summer Communication Document" and sign up for your Remind Group by class, as well as checking and completing you "Accessory Order" on this website. Sign up for Remind today, accessory orders due Thursday, June 3rd. If you miss the deadline you won't have your free show shirt for the parades, and your accessories won't be in for the season!
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to a great season.
Wildcat Students & Families,
We are happy to announce our auxiliary tryouts for the 2021/2022 marching season! Please see the attached PDF below from Coach Becker.
All the best,
Well the news is finally out, and YES WE WILL BE PLAYING A HOME GAME NEXT FRIDAY ON 10/9/2020 AT 7 PM.
We will be playing Akron Kenmore High School, and WHEN we win this game, we will have another playoff game at home versus either Nordonia or Lakeside. Please read the following below:
Since this OHSAA sponsored, there is no opportunity for senior night. I sent that in a communication earlier on, but I am attaching once again for you to review. Also, I will be following the same format as we did last game. All students will need to be temperature checked before entering their seats. Students will need to wear khaki pants, band shirts, band shoes, and black socks. Same as before, and yes they can wear sweatshirts and coats in the stands. Those of you that have been to playoffs before. know it is a very tedious process, so please be patient.
Ticket information will be handled next week. Now please understand that the kids do not have school that day, and I am making temperature check/call time 5:45 PM. I will need everyone to start their temp checks by 5:45 and seated by 6:10 PM. We will once again do pre-game from the stands and then do our halftime show as normal. Next week, there is Wednesday night practice at 5:30-7:15 PM. I need all students there, I know kids have homework, etc, but they are not having sectionals next week, so they have plenty of time to catch up on work. Students need to be at Wednesday rehearsal or they run the risk of not performing.
I know these times are crazy, but I will communicate with you each day next week because of potential changes. I cannot express to all of you how proud I am of this group. I have been given many compliments, and truly those compliments all should go to the staff, parents, and students; they are the ones making this work. Mark your calender's for 10/9 and 10/16, because it will be an amazing ride, and it is our job to get this team fired up and ready!!!!
Keep EMBRACING THE CHALLENGE, Mayfield, and always ROCK ON!!!! Always excited, always jacked up, always awake early, and ALWAYS HUMBLED AND BLESSED TO BE YOUR DIRECTOR!
I wanted to inform you of several updates. The first, and most important is tonight's practice. I need everyone in your stadium seats by 5:30. If you are on time, then you are late. I understand that later today we may be in for some inclement weather. I will make a decision regarding practice, no later than 4 PM. I have seen several conflicting forecasts, and I want to make sure I get this correct. Please come to practice dressed warmly, and with shoe, not slides or sandals. It will be a bit chilly this evening.
The next bit of information is as follows:
*Starting Monday October 5th, 2020 there will be NO MORE INSTRUMENTAL SECTIONALS. THE ONLY TWO GROUPS WHO WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE SECTIONALS WILL BE THE DRUM LINE AND THE AUXILIARY. We will continue to have Wednesday evening rehearsals at 5:30 pm, and it is expected that all be there. I am pretty confident we will get a home game, so Wednesday practices will continue until we no longer play.
If you have a scheduled sectional this week, it will happen, and this does not go into effect until Monday 10/6/2020. I am asking that if you have any questions or concerns regarding this decision, to please contact me. Finally, I should know tomorrow the potential playoff game. Please stay tuned for that.
Please continue to work hard in school, keep those grades up, and do your best. I am asking that during your zoom with Mr. Treiber, you spend some time practicing stand tunes. We need to have them ready for the next game. As mentioned before, if you have any questions or concerns, I am always available, please feel free to contact me. EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE AND ROCK ON WILDCATS!!

For the rest of this week, there will be no practice this evening, and our next event will be Friday, 9/25/2020, at 3:45. I need everyone to meet me in the parking lot by the new band room at 3:45 wearing your band shirts, and whatever you want for bottoms and shoes. We will then proceed to line up for the football team as they enter the bus to take on Chardon. I would encourage all parents to come and cheer the kids on. Let's bring some spirit to the school.
