Ropers' Halftime Performance

The Ropers will be performing at THS girls' basketball game halftime on Tuesday January 30.  The Varsity game starts at 6:00 so we need all Ropers there at that time.  We are estimating halftime to be around 6:30.  Once halftime is over, Ropers will be dismissed to go home or stay and watch the rest of the game.  Parents, siblings and guests will have to pay admission to the game.
Ropers will be dressed in their Roper t-shirt, black athletic shorts and tennis shoes.  They will not need their own rope. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Tomball Holiday Parade November 18


Our first performance is Saturday November 18th. We will be marching in the Tomball Holiday parade. You need to be at First Baptist Church at 8:15 am. We can’t park at the church so drop your child off with us and park somewhere else. They will be towing cars that are parked in off limit parking spots. If you have questions ask one of us. We have to be lined up by 8:45 in our assigned line up space. We will have to leave the church no later than 8:35 to find our assigned space—DON’T BE LATE!!!!!!!

If you are late, we will try to have a parent at the church to walk the kids down to our parade entry. We are number 48 on Commerce Street between N. Cherry and N. Elm.

Please sign up for Remind if you haven’t already. It will be the best way to communicate with us.

 The parade starts at 10:00 and usually takes about an hour for us to get to the end. You need to pick your child up in the HEB parking lot when we are finished, not when the parade is over.

If you would like to walk with us in the parade, let us know-the more the merrier.

 Please let us know ahead of time if your Roper CAN NOT attend the parade on the 18th.

It is very important that you let us know if your child will NOT be able to attend since the kids have been working in groups. We need to let your child's group members know ahead of time so they can adjust their routine prior to the performance.
