Marching Band Kick-off Night for Students and Parents!

All members of the 2013-2014 Marching Indians should attend in order to receive music and get a chance to meet everyone!  Recordings of the show will be played!  No instruments are needed. This event starts at 6 pm and should end around 7 pm for band members.  Please meet outside on the front lawn at central campus.

Parents are invited to go to the cafetorium at 6 pm to hear/receive information about our band program and the activities scheduled through the summer with band boosters. Band spirit items will be on display as well as sign-up sheets for events that require volunteers and workers. Refreshments (ice cream!) will be served during the evening!

Band camp forms and cash payments will be accepted during the evening in the cafetorium.  Please have all forms filled in advance before you come to the meeting.  See below for info about band camp packet forms.

Spring Band Concert / Awards Tonight!
Concert begins at 7 pm (doors open at 6:45 for public)

Concert attire for performers is:
Boys: dress pants, dress shirt, tie optional, dress shoes

Girls: dress pants or skirt and nice top; skirt must be knee-length or longer with tights
*Skirts must be just above the knee or longer - NO shorter! A skirt that only reaches your fingertips is still too short for sitting on a stage in a formal concert setting.
*Dresses and tops may be sleeveless (i.e., only open at the shoulder) – spaghetti strap or strapless tops/dresses are not allowed unless you are wearing a sweater over the dress.
