We will perform at Rose Hill Cemetery following the parade. We should be back to the school by 11:45am. Students need to turn in their shirts/uniforms when we return, then they will be released for the day.

ALL UNIFORMS MUST BE TURNED IN BY JUNE 1ST. Any student with an outstanding uniform will be charged a late fee and may be charged for the replacement value of the uniform.

Fundraising Opportunity Coming Up!

We have been asked to work the Berrien County Sportsman's Club concession booth Thursday, June 13th thru Sunday, June 16th (Father's Day).

Pay is $10 an hour and all of it goes to your student's band account. This is a great way to build up their accounts for band camp/marching shoes/future trips. High School students are welcome to work to bolster their accounts as well.

You do not have to work every day; the hours vary. Please give Sherri Keene a call @ 269-921-0506 to secure a shift before they fill up!

End of Year Instrument Return

Any student who is using a school-owned instrument must turn it in after their exam for inventory and for cleaning. Students who wish to use their school owned instrument through the summer must get approval from the band directors.

Students who are renting from Meyer Music or Quinlan & Fabish should keep their instruments for the summer unless they have chosen not to continue with band. If they will not be in band next year, they can turn their instrument in to the band office after their exam and the directors will return it to the company.
