Helping out at the football games is a great way to connect with other band parents and show your kids that what they are doing is important! Please use the links below to sign up for some volunteer positions. Posted are both August and September opportunities.

A few notes from Jeff Robinson:

  1. Please sign up to help with Pit crew, volunteers are still needed.
  2. A huge thank you to the parents who have helped out so far this year. Many hands make light work!
  3. We need 3 ATV or golf carts with trailers like little blue for October 4 competition at 5 P.M.

Do you have the BAND app yet?

If you have not had an opportunity to download the BAND app please do so. Please click https://band.us/n/aead56K2I98aY and band with us. On the app, you can see posts from directors and parents, ask questions, and share info and pictures. This will be where marching band notifications will happen for parents (I.E. When are the kids getting home from an away game? Volunteer opportunities? How do I access charms?). Photos from Band Camp have been posted here.
