Tickets: All day admission wristband
Adult: $15
Student: $10 (with valid middle school or high school or college ID)
Children: Free (elementary school and under)

NOTE: School district/teacher ID is not valid for entry and/or discount
Spectator Parking:

There are two satellite parking lots for PCI – they are both located off Kuebler Blvd. at Skyline. Follow the signs upon arrival. There is VERY LIMITED space on campus, so spectators should plan to park in the satellite lots and take the shuttle service over. Please allow plenty of time before your band’s performance to get parked and make it over to Sprague. Please pass this information on to potential spectators of your group!

Spectator Information:
Sprague’s Olympic Stadium does not have covered seating. Please be prepared for inclement weather– umbrellas are welcome. Sprague High School is a tobacco-free campus.

Please advise parents and other spectators to arrive, at minimum, 60 minutes prior to your band’s performance. On Campus parking is extremely limited. Most spectators will need to park in the overflow lots at Kaiser-Permanente & Countrywide Financial, so allow time for the shuttle to bring you to the stadium.

Souvenirs:
We will again have a souvenirs booth with buttons. The souvenirs booth will operate as cash only. We have also invited our favorite tee shirt vendor who is bringing hoodies and tees with a special PCI logo for 2017. Alligator Screen Printing will accept Visa and Mastercard.


Please Sign Up For "Remind" text list

Parents and students! Do you want to make sure you have all the most up to date information about band???  There is a very simple way to do that.  Our school district now allows me to use an app called Remind to send out announcements via text message.  All you have to do is text the password below to 81010 and you will be signed up!  Please sign up for every group your student is a part of.  Everyone should sign up for the All Parents or All Students groups.  These groups includes all band parents and all band students, regardless of which class they are in.  Please also sign up for the specific class or group your child is a part of.  For example, if your student is in Marching Band, Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band, please sign up for all three of these as well as the one for everyone.  This way you will get all the information that applies to you and your child, and won’t get reminders about things that don’t apply to you.


Send a text to the number 81010, with the following password in the message.

It takes about one second to sign up, and you will only receive occasional text messages.  For example, if Marching Band practice gets cancelled due to weather I will send out a quick text to the Marching Band parents and students.  This does not give me or anyone else your phone number, and it is not a text you can respond to.  It’s just a way to get information out quickly to you and your student.
