Join Marching Band in 2021!
In late April, we will plan to have a parent meeting to discuss the fall marching season and a potential Disney Trip (Spring Break 2022). If you have questions that you would like to ask before our meeting, please call or email Mr. Matthews at the school.
Marching Band for PE Credit - NEW for 2021: Our high school administration is going to allow incoming Freshmen the opportunity to earn one semester's PE credit through participation in marching band this year. This applies only to the Class of 2025. Students who are working to earn that credit will be in charge of regularly documenting their physical activity as a part of the marching band. We are excited to offer this option for 2021!
