Since we are out of school, money and permission forms need to be turned in by the time we leave on the 11th. Please only sign up if you do plan to go, as any unused tickets will cost the band money!

Uniform Fund

We are very close to meeting our goal for Phase 1 of the Uniform Fund. We are hoping to have new uniforms for the 2019 Marching season. If you would like to help us meet our goal, please click on our Paypal link on the right.

Chattanooga Marathon

Volunteer with the Chattanooga marathon on Sunday, March 3, 2019. We are in need of 70 band members and their family and or friends to participate. If you are former alumni or simply just a fan we would love to have your help. We are asking you to join us with a volunteer commitment to raise money for our band uniforms. By participating, the Chattanooga Marathon has agreed to make a donation to our uniform fund. Each volunteer will be assigned a location that day and will be a pointer along the marathon route to help to guide the runners along. You will be asked to cheer each participant as they make their way along the race. You are welcome to bring a chair if needed.

The Hixson High Band group name is The Sunday pointers. Each volunteer will need to sign up and shouldn’t be required to create a username or password. By signing up online, you will incorporate a waiver and a online registration that requires each volunteer to choose a T-shirt size.

Our group will meet at 7:00 AM on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at the first Tennessee pavilion.
