Band Polos

For Eagle Glen & RPEMS Band Kids

Band Polo orders are due by October 1st. It's a very easy 2-step process:

Step 1: You can visit: to order your child's polo (this gets the correct size for us).

Step 2: You can submit your payment here.

If you have already purchased your child's band polo at registration or online, we just need you to now submit the size through the first link above.

If you prefer, you can submit your payment directly to Eagle Glen (cash or check). *Make checks payable to Eagle Glen or RPEMS.

Eighth grade parents, you do not need to re-order a polo if your child still has his/hers at home.

Practice Time

For EG and RPEMS

Please make sure students are practicing at least 15-20 minutes for 4 to 5 days per week. We are moving fast in band class and things are going well. The faster we move in band class and through the band book, the more practice becomes important. Please encourage your kids to find a quiet place to sit down and practice at home. This will greatly cut down on the frustration during class for your kiddo.
