Football Game Uniform Information!

Due to threatening weather this evening (Sept 7th), students should arrive at 6:15 pm wearing jeans with orange and black on top (band t-shirt, polo, hoodie, or any Minooka/orange and black clothing is okay). Gym shoes are also fine. HOWEVER, also have with you your Drillmaster shoes and shorts or leggings to wear under your band uniform in case we are able to wear full uniform after all. This gives us the option of wearing full uniform or not depending on what the weather is doing. Please email Mr. Anderson or Ms. Wych with any questions!

Seniors, pictures will still be at 4:40 pm and will be in full uniform. (Please arrive before 4:40 pm so you have time to change into your uniform. Actual picture-taking begins at 4:40.)
