Hello everyone!

Looking forward to getting things rolling for band in the 2023-24 school year.  Pasted below are the summer events and rehearsal schedules.

A special welcome to new associate band director, Ms. Maddy Beasley!  Ms. Beasley has been teaching in Missouri for the last 3 years.  She is a saxophone player from Pitt State and is working on her master’s at KU.  I know you will enjoy working with her…please make her feel welcome at the Ice Cream Social this Monday, July 24th!

Students, please remember to wear/bring the following for all outdoor rehearsals:

Light colored shorts/shirt, tennis shoes with socks (NO FLIP FLOPS)

1 gallon iced down water container

Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat


Returning marchers, please bring your old flip folder/lyre.  Otherwise, we will provide flip folder/lyre, music, black pouch with coordinates, pencil and markers.

                                    2023 REMIND CLASSES

Everyone, please sign up for the following Remind codes, as this is how we communicate last minute information (usually due to weather): text to the phone number: 81010 Also, make sure you use the “@” sign in the text box.  We’re only allowed 150 members per class, which is why we break up the varsity band in two groups.  Parents, please feel free to join this as well.  REMINDER: This is a one way communication device.  Even if it says you can respond, please email or text Mr. Reed with responses/questions.  Finally, please make sure your responses are all in lower case.
