Flip Folder and Binder Check

All band students (not color guard) are required to have a flip folder. We will be having a flip folder check and binder check the first day of school. We will be selling flip folders with extra pages this week for $10, but you can also order them from Music and Arts or Amazon. Students will need to purchase additional pages to be able to fit all their stand tunes in their flip folder. Lyres are required for clarinet and saxophone players. Band students are also required to have a 1” black binder for their full-sized music.
