Marching Band Parents

Marching Band Parents,

The marching season is off and running. We look forward to seeing you at all of the events. You will be receiving an occasional e-mail from the parents’ organization to keep you informed about parent related band stuff. I have already received questions about how all this band stuff works. I have attached a PDF of information for the new band parents. It has a brief description of the types of band events. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.

I will begin e-mailing directions, maps, and other information for the marching competitions this week. Those e-mails will go out as we receive the details from the host schools. Some of the information and entrance fees are already listed at Many of the parents will carpool or caravan to the competitions. Please speak up if you are looking for a ride or someone to follow.

Thank you to all of the parents that were able to help with uniforms and during half time at last Friday’s game. We can always use help in the band room and on the field. If you would like to learn how to help with uniforms, please get with Michelle Krause in the band room before call time. This year we could use about 15 parents to assist with the podiums, sound equipment, and some of the percussion equipment on the field. Stop by the band bleachers before the game if you are able to help (the best jobs are given away first). You do not need any music or football knowledge to help out. We will even have pictures for those visual learners.

Thank you,
Scott McMilian
