Thank you!

To the Coldwater Cavalier Community, The Band Boosters would like to take this time and express our sincere gratitude for so many donations in response to assisting with the costs of the Band to the OHSAA DIV VI State Championship Game. As many of you are aware the Cavaliers have not been to a state title game in 4 years so this will be our Band Student’s first experience at playing at such a level. Our children are so excited for this opportunity, and know that this may not have been possible if it wasn’t for your generosity. Once again thanks to those who have committed to personal donations as well as those local businesses that have also donated. So with that being said, be sure to watch the Cavalier Band Play as loud as they can on 11/22/2020 at 5pm EST, as the Coldwater Cavalier Football team takes on the Springfield Tigers. Very Respectfully,
Coldwater Band Boosters ...

Football Playoffs

Band students and parents, I have noticed several posts recently on social media and would like to address some of the questions and rumors I have read. Throughout the football regular season and into the the first five weeks of playoffs, the band has followed guidelines set forth by the OHSAA regarding travel. Per their guidelines, there were no visiting bands and only the home band would perform at their own stadium. On Oct. 28th OHSAA reversed their policy and announced that bands could attend the State Semi Finals and State Championship Game. When that happened, I approached our administration about band travel. Mr. Wood reached out to the Superintendents of Columbus Grove and Fairview to discuss band travel with them as well. Through our discussions with both administrations and band staffs it was determined that neither band would travel to this week’s game, which is a decision I fully support. Should we progress to the championship game, we are looking at our options for how to safely participate should we choose to do so. As always my first priority is student safety. I have communicated this process with the students throughout and will continue to do so. If you have questions regarding any decision I have made, please feel free to contact me to discuss. I thank you for your patience and understanding in these challenging times. Sincerely, Mr. Ruckman ...
