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
