JV uniform fitting night:

Monday, August 21st from 6:30-8:30PM in the band room.  It’s very important you attend, as our first home game is 10 days later!  Please carpool if necessary to attend.  You do not have to stay the entire time- once you’re fitted for your uniform, you can leave.


Monday night rehearsals (varsity only) will begin August 21st, and are from 6:30-8:30PM.  We will have 6 additional Monday night rehearsals on Aug. 28th, September 11th, 18th, 25th, October 9th and 16th.  These are graded rehearsals.


EARLY MORNING REHEARSALS (varsity only): Early morning rehearsals will begin on Wednesday, Aug. 16st.   We will have early morning rehearsals every Monday, Wednesday and FRIDAY morning, until Oct. 27th.  Rehearsals begin at 6:45AM on the stadium field, unless otherwise stated or inclement weather.  Attendance is taken promptly at 6:45AM, in your attendance block.  These are graded rehearsals.


Students: We will play in class for the first time on Tuesday, August 15th.  Jazz kids will begin playing their instruments on Monday, August 14th.
