As noted on the home page, the 2020 marching band season has been postponed to correspond with the new spring football season.  Obviously, we aren't sure what the schedule will look like, but we understand that there may be challenges with working around other spring activities.  We will do everything we can to be flexible and creative in an effort to allow as many people to participate as possible. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.  (Contact information is posted below.) We appreciate your interest in marching band, hope you continue to stay safe, and hope you will be able to join us for a spring marching band season!

The district requires all students participating in any activity to fill out the activity sign-up form and pay a $45 activity fee.  This is done through the FeePay site, which is the same site that is used to add funds to a student's lunch account.  An updated link will be posted when available.  You will need to register if you have not done so already.  There are registration instructions posted below.
