Band Notes 9–11–2018


A BIG week for this group.

PLEASE read all of this information!

PLUS — Band Trip news Below

Last Call for Theme Tees for Parents & Students

We would like everyone to know that there will not be t-shirts that specifically say “Band Parent” on them this year. Instead, parents are ordering the same shirts as the students.

Wearing these shirts will be a great way for parents to find each other in the stands, and it makes it easier for the students to spot their cheering section when we’re sitting together.

If you’re interested, don’t wait! Please place your order today at

Medical Forms

Currently, we have over 40 students that will NOT be able to go to the competition this weekend because of missing medical forms! PLEASE, we need the forms handed in. The students have worked hard and it would be very upsetting if your child cannot join the band!
