News From the Band Room


This Week, First Home Field Performance!

Hi Folks - We had another good run on Friday night at the football game! Let's keep it rolling. There are still things to clean and improve upon, but the show had a lot of energy and came across well. This is a reminder there is NO evening rehearsal this Thursday for the full band at the high school. Drumline will continue to rehearse 6:30-8:30pm. Our goal this week will be adding the final number to our show. We will be performing at halftime and Ephrata's band will be performing pre-game.

This week we will be taking the group picture of the band, as well as each section and individual seniors. Please see report time and schedule below.

Please note the calendar schedule at the bottom of this page. Homecoming will be October 8th. October 16th is the Lebanon County Band Exhibition at Cedar Crest this is a mandatory performance. Please make sure your child is in attendance that evening.

Students will need to go home this Friday immediately after school and return at 5pm.

If you still owe money for your Dinkle order, please bring it in ASAP.

Band Pins

Order forms are now available for band pins. These pins are similar to the ribbons worn by the military on their dress uniforms. Each pin costs $3. Students should pick which ones they would like and send in a check for the total amount made payable to: ELCO HIGH SCHOOL.

Order forms and payments should be deposited in the wooden lock box at the front of the band room.

In order to keep all of the absence information in one place, I've created an absence form for you to fill out. If you will be absent from a rehearsal or performance this year, please fill out the form below.
