Band Concert Wednesday, 5/15/19!

We have our spring awards concert this Wednesday. We could still use a couple of parents to help us out walk the middle school students to the high school at 8am on Wednesday for our rehearsal. We will need you from 8am to 11:30am (or for as long as you can stay!)


The concert on Wednesday will be in the high school gym. Concert starts at 7pm, students need to arrive dressed in uniform no later than 6:30pm.


We will have both sides of the gym bleachers available for this concert. If you have a student in the 6th grade or 7th grade bands, you may want to sit on the "visitors" side of the gymnasium to better see your student.


Parents of 6th grade students: one of the pieces involves a baseball cap. Students are allowed to bring a ball-cap with them to the concert for that piece.


We sent home an info letter with permission slip home two weeks ago. If that letter didn't make it home a copy is in the link below. Students need to have the permission slips in by tomorrow (Monday). We do accept email and hand-written permission forms, too.

The High School Band Banquet has been cancelled due to lack of interest. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Band Booster Meeting Monday (tomorrow) 5/13/19

We have our monthly Band Booster meeting tomorrow in the high school band room at 7pm.


One of the items up for discussion is a change in leadership positions. If you are interested in helping with uniforms, band camp, fundraisers, or other activities, please attend! Committee chairs/memebers do not have to be just high school parents. Middle School parents are welcomed and needed for fundraisers and uniforms too!


Thank you for your continued support of our program!
