Dear Band Parents,
There is a Music Department Parent Meeting on August 22 at 6:30 PM in the band room. The meeting is for concert band parents and marching band parents.
The meeting will discuss concert performance attire for male & female, concert schedule and other opportunities for student's to play their instrument. Mr. Brown will go over CHARMS, our online system for obtaining information. He will also talk about the band's website. The Booster officers will be available and volunteer opportunities will be discussed.
For those who owe concert fees ($25) or marching fees, someone will be available to accept payments.
Also, if you haven't turned in your Marcher's physical forms, you may turn them in then.
Looking forward to seeing all parents at this informative meeting.
The football game versus Kipp on August 25 has been rescheduled for 5:30 PM. Since this is an early game and a last minute change, the school was not able to get buses for us. Therefore, the band will not attend the game next Friday, August 25. Our first performance will now be at the Towers game on September 1.
Thanks for your understanding,
I have had several requests from students and parents to bring back varsity lettering for band. Here are the requirements to receive a letter at the band banquet in May:
Varsity letters are awarded to students who go above and beyond the basic expectations.
Points will be deducted for tardiness, absence, leaving a practice or performance early, or behavior that is deemed inappropriate for rehearsal or performance.
Points and deductions will be posted in the points section of the CharmsOffice.com parent/student section. Parents and students may view points at any time by logging in to the Charms site. This information will be kept private between the family and the band director.
Dear Marching Spartans & parents/guardians:
It's been a great week of band camp and the first day of school is right around the corner!
Parents/guardians are invited to a preview of the marching band fall show tomorrow night (Fri, 8/7) at 8 PM on the back practice field. The back practice field is located on the visitor side of the main football field accessed through a opening (path) in the forest to the left of the visitor stands (when looking at them). Hope to see you there!
A couple of other reminders:

Here's to another great season of Marching Band!
