Marching Band now meets at 7:40 am inside. Congratulations on a great season! We are proud of the hard work you’ve put in this year, and how we finished the season strong.

Monday, 10/22, 7:40am
– Marching Band: Listen to judges’ comments & address equipment/instrumentation needs for concert bands

Thursday, 10/25: Home Football Playoff Game & Glow Show ‑‑ Yes, it’s back (with some conditions)
– Students dress in all‑black & decorate yourselves in LED battery‑powered lights ‑‑ dollar stores have great prices on lights
– We perform after the football game in the dark!
Students must perform the show exactly as written/choreographed. It is critical for the safety of the performers and the integrity of the show.
– Students making poor decisions will be immediately pulled from the field and suspended from future band activities (possibly the Italy Trip, future concerts, etc)
– Let’s not repeat 2017. Families travel from out of town to watch. The community supports us. Do the right thing.
– Call time @ SME: 5pm
– Full uniform (we still march pregame) ‑‑ wear all‑black t‑shirt or bring a black top to change into
