Marching Band Schedule – Bandtober!


Greetings Mighty Marching Band Students and Parents/Guardians!

This email is to serve as communication about the schedule for the remaining 5 weeks of Marching Band.  We need everyone present for all rehearsals and performances as we move into this next stage of the season!  I’ve typed it all out into the body of this email, just in case the attachment does not work great.  Thank you!
