Football Game Nights!
The Marching Ensemble performs at all home football games supporting the team, cheerleaders, and fans by performing pep tunes in the stands during time-outs and between plays, performing all or part of our competitive show during halftime, and performing a standstill tune for the Rhythm B's.
Students are granted a small break during the third quarter and are back in the stands, ready to play for the fourth quarter. After halftime, the Color Guard may change and leave.
After the game, students are responsible for putting the band room back in order before all are released. If the football team makes it to any playoff games, the band may get to perform depending on the location.
Dinner is provided by the Band Boosters on days that rehearsal falls on a home game day.
You will receive a schedule of the home football games.

It is important for parents to know what they should expect when they go see their students compete AND it's very important for families to try to attend these competitions. This is OUR team's performance and a cheering section is always appreciated!
Departure and approximate return times, plus directions on how to get to each show, are
announced the week prior to each competition. BHSME travels to each competition as a
group, with chaperones and staff, on Beaverton School District buses. Chaperones get into almost all competitions for free.
Competitions take place, rain or shine! Dress for the weather. Cold, wind, rain and an occasional ray of sun have all been experienced. Layering of clothes is always helpful along with an umbrella/rain repellent outerwear and a seat cushion.
