If parents are at the parade and plan on picking up students at Ford, please leave right after we pass you.  DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE PARADE ENDS TO START HOME.

If you are taking your child home directly from the parade, please send in a note to be given to the bus chaperone. Our dispersal/pickup area is at Oakbrook Elementary, behind Heritage Jr. High.  

* IF the weather is anticipated to be cooler (in Michigan, one never knows), I will get the word out for modifications to the summer uniform. Past modifications have included blue jeans, long sleeve t’s etc.)

Memorial Day Parade!!


It’s been several years since we’ve been able to do this, but the HFII Falcon Marching Band will be participating in the Sterling Heights Memorial Day Parade on Monday May 30!
I don’t have any specific details from Sterling Heights at this time, but I would anticipate the call time to be 8:00 AM, in SUMMER UNIFORM. IF the weather looks like it will be on the cool side (in Michigan, you NEVER know….) I will allow some modifications to the summer uniform (Jeans, long-sleeve shirt underneath, etc.
We will be performing some of the music from Just What the Doctor Ordered.
As I get more details, I will relay them to you ASAP!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
GO BAND!
