Pep Band Schedule

Below is the TENTATIVE Varsity Basketball schedule, which means Pep Band is right around the corner!

December 2nd vs. Benedictine

December 17th vs. Northland (Alumni welcome to join)

December 31st vs. St. Vincent St. Mary (Alumni welcome to join)

January 6th vs. Canton GlenOak (Alumni welcome to join)

January 13th vs. St. Edward

February 4th vs. Cleveland Heights

February 11th vs. Solon

February 17th vs. Massillon

February 24th vs. Kenston

Depending on the outlook of the season, there may be some playoff games in early March. Stay tuned!

Pep Band is a GREAT way to increase technical ability for our younger members, and it's an awesome way to earn a Varsity Letter! It would be great to field a group of at least 25-30 students for each of these games!

Band Labre Event

Similar to years past, I've accepted the invitation for the Band to help the St. Benedict Joseph Labre Ministry on December 11th.

There will be a limit to the students that wish to participate, with signups happening in November. Participating in the Labre Ministry is an incredibly rewarding experience. Especially for students that have not yet done this, I highly recommend signing up when the time comes.

Marching Band and Flag Corps Pictures

The Ripcho Studio photographs have been distributed to Band Students --- Flag Corps will receive them on Monday! If there is anything incorrect about your order, please let me know!

There are also photographs available from our performance at the Mentor Football Game from NEOSPORTSPIX. To view these and purchase them, please visit:

Band Trip Update

THANK YOU to everyone for the down payments for the Band and Flag Corps Trip in March. While I am still waiting for final monetary amounts from Bob Rogers Travel, here is what I can share:

90 Band Students and 7 Flag Corps Students are signed up to participate.

Combine that with 9 Chaperones, and we WILL fit on two busses. It will be tight, but we will make it work.

As of now, the full tentative cost is still $750. That number may move a little --- I will relay all of the final information as I receive it.

If you have any questions regarding the trip, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Freshmen Representatives

Congratulations to Jack Auletta '20 and Victor Yavornitzky '20 on their election to the Band Freshmen Representative position! Jack and Victor will assist the uniform moms in passing out uniforms and collecting them before and after games.

Did I Miss Anything?
