Schedule and Band Assignments

All three Bands have had their first Pep Band, which means all students should have attended one Pep Band already. I encourage you to talk with your student to see if your student missed their first Pep band make sure they make it to their second one!


We are loving all the students coming to Pep Band to get those Band Points!!!

All students are required to attend two Pep Band Performances. If you are unable to attend a game it is your job to find a person that plays the same instrument to switch with you. Switches must be communicated to Mrs. Lato. Switches can only occur because of a conflict. Students can attend more than their scheduled pep bands, for each additional pep band attended students will receive 25 points towards their Varsity letter. Attendance is taken at every game at the beginning and during halftime. You must stay through halftime to receive credit for the performance.


If you are playing JV or V Basketball please see Mrs. Lato
