Memorial Day Parade

The Memorial Day Parade is on Monday, May 28th. The marching band will have rehearsals in the three weeks leading up to the parade.

The rehearsals dates are as follows: 

May 8, 2:20-4:15pm
May 15, 2:20-4:15pm
May 17, 2:20-4:15pm
May 22, 2:20-4:15pm
May 24, 2:20-4:15pm
As per the Marching Band Contract, participation in the parade is mandatory.

We will be participating in two parades on Monday, May 28th - Millstone and Allentown. Report time will be roughly 7:20am. Millstone students will be able to meet us in Millstone for that parade but everyone will need to be picked up at AHS around 12pm that day. 

Kick off Meeting

Our annual kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 30th at 7pm. Start talking it up! I just visited the middle schools so they know about the date but spread the word, especially to 8th graders. 

Summer Marching Band

As we start looking to next year, I encourage you to check the calendar on the band website for schedule information.

In general, Full Marching Band rehearsals (including woodwinds/brass) will take place every Wednesday night, 6-9pm. This will start in the end of June and continue throughout the summer.

Band Camp is August 21-24
Rehearsal: Monday, August 27 and Wednesday, Aug. 29. Please do not schedule vacations either week. The Monday and Wednesday rehearsals are mandatory after band camp.
