Playoff Game

We should know on what day we’ll have our playoff game next week after the SLHS vs. CRHS game this evening. I will send out information as soon as the schedule is locked down.

Kendra Scott Trunk Show

The OTHS Band will host a Kendra Scott Trunk Show in the Tompkins Main Commons on Wednesday, November 14 from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm. In addition to Kendra Scott there will be 20 other wonderful vendors and this will be a great chance to do some early holiday shopping while also supporting the band!

Region Band Entry

All wind and percussion students who are interested in auditioning for the TMEA Region Band must complete the entry form by clicking on the following link:

You must also bring the $20 entry fee to Mr. Bond in either cash or check form (made out to OTHSBBO). All entries are due by Thursday, November 15. This audition is not required but highly encouraged for anyone who has prepared the all state etudes.

OTHSBBO General Meeting

The next general meeting of the OTHSBBO will take place on Tuesday, November 13 at 7 pm in the OTHS Band Hall. All members are encouraged to attend as we wrap up marching season and discuss upcoming events.

Amazon Smile

Remember, if you are shopping on Amazon for the holidays, go to, enter the Tompkins Band as your non-profit of choice, and go from there. We will receive a percentage of all purchases made through this website with no additional cost to you! Amazon Prime and other special programs are still in effect with this. You must use every time after this in order for us to get any benefit. If you go to or use the app, it doesn’t work.

Have a great week!

Stephen Bond
