If you are coming to cheer on our awesome band, make sure you arrive by 6 pm to allow for parking, walking, and finding a seat. You aren't allowed to enter a stadium's seating area when a band is performing, so you'll need to arrive well before performance time.
Remember, dismissal time is approximate. Students are not allowed to leave until Mr. Pace dismisses them, which is after everything is unloaded and put away and their meeting is finished.
Volunteer to help at State!
We have a few slots left and need your help - please consider volunteering. You'll have more fun than you expect, and your help is more important than you can imagine.

Food donations needed too!
We are feeding the kids two meals plus snacks on Saturday and we could really use a few more donations to cover the extra needs. If you would prefer, cash donations to help with expenses are always welcome!!

Fruit Sale underway!
Students received information last week about the Annual Band Fruit Sale. Sale will last through November 15th and pick up is tentatively scheduled for December 10th.
Remember, students can sell a minimum of 10 items (fruit or cheesecakes) to reduce the last $100 of band fees.
If you aren't able to pay your band fees, you are expected to sell at least the minimum amount.

Make sure you are on track to pay your Band Fees!
Being a band this awesome isn't cheap. Unfortunately, there are many who have fallen behind in band fee payments. Even if you can only pay a little bit each week, we need you to keep up with your payments as our costs continue through the season and beyond. Please log in to your account and review what you owe.
See the full explanation on reducing fees.
