Girls of the Norman High School Indian Education program received the opportunity to make their own shawl for the Fall Benefit Powwow. Material and tassels were bought by the Indian Education representatives. The girls went Hancocks Fabric a week before the powwow to pick out the fabric they wanted to use. Parent volunteers helped the students set up their shawls. Joy Kenney sewed all the material for each girl.

After receiving a superior rating at the OSSA Regional marching competition in Lawton last year, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tiger marching band had a tough act to follow. Under the guidance of directors Jim Meiller and Joel Deardorf and drum majors James Ross and Tom Seivers, band members began rehearsing in August. During the August band camp, the pre-game performance and opening movement of the halftime and competition show were learned. Pre- game consists of the band marching out on to the field, playing NHS fight, the National Anthem and marching off of the field to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eye of the Tiger.â&#x20AC;? The theme of

Rehearsals continued throughout the beginning of the school year during an extended version of zero hour. After a rough start and earning the 11 place spot at the Mustang Invitational marching contest, band students preserved and improved. They later earned seventh place spot at the Putnam City marching contest, and improved even more to earn a superior rating, the highest available, at the OSSA regional contest.
