  • Schedule, Week of 9/5 and important information
    Attendance Policy
    Please note: from this point onward, all rehearsals are mandatory. Excused absences will be given for events such as medical emergency's and events such as close family weddings (must be cleared 2 weeks in advance). No other excuses will be accepted. The summer has a relaxed attendance policy but comes to an end with the start of Band Camp.

    Saturday, 9/10 
    Full Band, 9a-3p

    *Notes about Friday

    • You are with the band starting at 3:45pm. We have a brief rehearsal, then we have a quick break. After that, we go to the Football game and perform.
    • Many students eat right after school before rehearsal. The Eat and Uniform time is very quick and a lot is going on during that time.
    • Winds – please go to your local instrument store and purchase a lyre and flip folder. Bring your instrument with you if possible to get the right “fit” (especially trumpets and saxes). Music and Arts, Freehold Music, and Russo’s Music are very good spots to go. Ask for a "flip folder and lyre"

     


    ^Note regarding hemming the pants:

    • Hem should done so that the pants are 2 inches off the ground when looking from behind.  Make sure your child is wearing their Dinkles when you measure.
    • DO NOT cut off the extra material when hemming the pants.  Even if the hem is large, the fabric shouldn’t be cut.  Hem should be done with a loose stitch.  Please do not use any type of iron-on hemming tape.
    • Sleeves can also be hemmed.  Again, no iron-on tape or cutting off fabric.  Please use correct color thread.
