Latest Event Updates
Our first football game is this Friday, September 13. Students need to be in uniform, ready to go by 5:30. Students can get their uniforms starting at 5:00 pm.
Remember! NO EATING IN UNIFORM! Eat before you come!
Students will play for the football game for the 1st quarter and part of the 2nd quarter and then prepare for their show. After they perform at half time, they will have a break during 3rd quarter and play for the last quarter. Everyone stays in uniform for the entire game.
Please do not share on any social media pictures or recordings of our show until after the first competition. Competitions are highly competitive and we don’t want to tip our hand before our first competition performance!
We are having a great first week of band camp and the kids are sounding AMAZING!
A few questions have come up in regards to orientation on Tuesday the 27th (for the freshman) and Wednesday the 28th (for the upperclassmen). On Tuesday the 27th, freshman will have orientation and it will start at 8:00am in the gym Also on Tuesday, the upperclassmen need to report to the library at 10:30am to get their picture taken for their asb card and to also get their computer. They do not need to come to band practice before 10:30. A sleep in day!! After they get their picture done and get their computer, they are to go to the band room. Freshmen will join camp when orientation is over. For upperclassmen, this replaces the orientation on Wednesday.
