  • Director's Notes are now available after every Band Parents Meeting on this site! Check out what Mr. Koch has shared by going to Band Parents Information > Director's Notes
  • Pick Up and Drop Off for band events – Please pick up and drop off your students by the stadium for band events.  This is the easiest way for me to make sure all students are safe and accounted for.  Please do not pick up and drop off by the loading docks, we have many other teams that practice out by those fields, so cars out back creates a safety issue for all of our students.
