First Football Game

What a perfect evening for the first game of the season. It was great to see our IHS Blue Devil Marching Band dressed in full uniform under the stadium lights. What a show they put on for us!

Did you notice anything different about the Marching Band on the field? Our band members all have brand new pants. These pants were purchased as phase one of our New Uniform Campaign. Thanks to your generous support of our fundraisers last year we have been able to outfit the band with these new items. Please encourage your musician/s to take care of their uniform jacket and these new pants. The pants have to last us 20 years, just as the previous pair.
