Announcements and News

Message from the Directors

We hope you all had a great break, and we look forward to seeing the students back at school this week!

With only 3 weeks left in the semester, we have a lot of things to do! Please make sure your child is caught up with school work and their music as we get ready for performance finals, etc.

There are lots of rehearsals this week for Percussion, Symphonic Winds, and Wind Symphony. See times above.

We also begin Winter Guard this week, so if your child is interested, please see the flyer below!

The Marching Band will be attending this week's Home Game for the 2nd round of the playoffs. There will not be a rehearsal, but Call Times will be normal.

Lastly, next Monday, we will be having a virtual Band Booster Meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!
