Filling out the registration form does not require you to join marching band, but will keep you in the loop about upcoming events and auditions (required for color guard, drumline, and pit), as well as summer practice sessions.

Marching band camp is mandatory if you are going to be in marching band.  If you have any conflicts please contact Ms. Bounds.

Once school begins, marching band practices are on Monday and Thursday afternoons (after school), and most Saturdays.

Please see the  2017 Band Calendar  for the tentative Fall  2017 Schedule..

The final Marching Band Roster will be set at the end of Band Camp in August.

Summer Workshops & Clinics:

There will be summer practices for Color Guard and Marching Band Percussion.  Dates and times will be announced.  Most are for ALL band members and all are for FREE!
