•New Sponsor
•Band Handbook 19-20
•Schedule Adjustment
•Open House
•Show Shirts

•Summer Band Concert





As many of you heard at our Summer Band Concert, we have a new sponsor. A special thank you to Great Adventures Inc. for being a Gold Level Sponsor! If you are looking to make travel arrangements of any kind, please consider reaching out to Great Adventures Inc. We appreciate your generosity towards our kids and program. 



With the start of school happening, all students and parents need to read the band handbook. Included in the hand book is a new media release form as well. All students and parents must sign and return the acknowledgement form and media release form by Tuesday, August 27th. You can find a copy of the band handbook and forms HERE.


On Monday & Tuesday, the afternoon temperature is expected to hit above 100º. While we cannot adjust Monday's afternoon schedule to ensure our campus first day procedures are properly followed, we will move Tuesday's afternoon rehearsal to the morning this week. For tomorrow, please be sure your student has all of their required supplies including appropriate outdoor items. You can help prepare your student for tomorrow by reminding them to hydrate throughout today.


Wednesday will be our annual Open House. The winds and percussion will be performing to welcome parents and students into the auditorium. These students will need to report to the band hall at 5:30 pm and will be done by 6:00 pm. Student can wear any school appropriate clothing for this performance and will be able to attend Open House immediately following.




Show shirts are expected to be in this week. The shirt will be created with a 50/50 (soft cotton) Heather Navy t-shirt. Shirts are $15 for sizes up to XL, and $17 for XXL and XXXL. You can place your order for these shirts HERE!
