News From the Band Room


A New Beginning

Hi Folks - This school year has finally come to a close and we are moving forward to a new band season and school year with things getting back to normal.

I would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 marching band season. If you don't already know, our theme for this year's marching band show will be James Bond. The marching band staff and I are anxious to kick things off this Thursday, June 17th from 6:30-8:30 at the high school with some pre-season rehearsals to get everyone acclimated to the music and some basics in marching. Just like the sports teams, in order for us to have a fun and productive season, we need to get started now so we are prepared to rock and roll for our first football game performance on Friday, August 27th.

I will be mailing home some paperwork to be filled out and returned such as medical forms and information for the band boosters.

I have included the summer and fall schedule for 2021 below for your convenience.

As always, if you have any questions, please email me

Thank You!

Mr. Fair
