    Please note the following schedule changes for the Fall 2016 Season. (These have all been updated on the band's Google Calendar).

    #1 - Week 1 Football Game (Away) vs. Central Dauphin has been changed to Thursday, September 1 at 7:00 PM. Report Time is TBA.

    #2 - Due to the football game change, the Parent Premier Performance must be changed to Wednesday, August 31 at 7:00 PM. A short practice will be held before hand, report time TBA.

    #3 - Practice on Tuesday, September 6 has been changed to 3:00-6:00 PM (immediately after school) due to stadium schedule conflicts (Red Card for Cancer Soccer Night). We will practice on the parking lot.

    #4 - Practice on Tuesday, October 4 has been changed to 3:00-6:00 PM (immediately after school) due to stadium schedule conflicts (Powderpuff Semi-Finals). We will practice on the parking lot.

    #5 - Homecoming is now on Friday, October 7. The Homecoming Dance will be Saturday, October 8. This is a change, but since we already had Saturday off, there is no change to the official band schedule. Just an FYI that we will likely not be performing the entire show at the Friday night football game, in favor of the usual Homecoming Festivities.

    #6 - Practice on Thursday, October 13 has been changed to 3:00-6:00 PM (immediately after school) due to stadium schedule conflicts (Soccer Senior Night). We will practice on the parking lot.

    Please contact Mr. Siegel with any questions pertaining to these changes or the schedule in general. Reminder: any absence requests must be submitted using the absence form at least two weeks in advance to be considered for an excused absence. Thank you for your responsibility and understanding in this regard.
