A Note From Your Directors

Staley Band Families,

Week 17 AB Sectional Schedule

Please click HERE for the Week 15 Sectional Schedule.


Concert Date Moved to Thursday, December 12th at Staley MS.

  • This change is due to the many students in basketball and the schedule overlapping the concert. We never want our students to have to choose school sports or band!
  • That week basketball for both boys and girls is on Monday. The tournament is on Friday/Saturday and the coaches told us this is a GREAT day for our concert.
