Schedule Clarifications

Thank you to the parents who email questions in to us - we appreciate the communication! 

Parents, POINT OF CLARIFICATION:  Please be sure to click on each calendar event to see if there is any embedded info about that event.  Often times important details will be embedded.  There are several Teacher Work Days and Teacher Professional Development Days on the year-long schedule that may state "Teachers Only."  But if there is a performance on that day, we will most definitely still be meeting students that day and performing.  If you click on an event and there is no info embedded - and you need more info, please email us and we'll be happy to clarify and provide.  We do our best to communicate often and as clear as possible but like everyone else, fall short sometimes. Your questions are welcomed! 


Practice ...

Marching Band will practice at the scheduled rehearsal times each week rain or shine.  No need to ask about weather... if it’s on our schedule, we will rehearse.  This week is Tuesday (7/31) and Thursday (8/2) from 6-9pm.  Bring everything you've been trained to bring - instrument, dot book, writing utensil, water cooler.  Remember to be EARLY and check band building boards before reporting to the fields.  Leadership, Outdoor Ops - 5:30 at the latest.  See you Tuesday!

GREAT Band Camp!

Summer Band Camp Success - another camp in the books - and the 2018 Raider Band has the "GREEN" light!!  The 2018 Raider Band is off to super start to the new season.  The music is awesome and the marching is fast-paced!

Regular practice begins next week!  Please look at the Band calendar for times.  We have two rehearsals next week and a parade on Saturday August 4th (as the calendar indicates).  AND - the Raider Band is going to be leading the parade this year!  Parade details will be published in the next couple days.  

Looking forward to a GREAT YEAR - GO RAIDERS!!!


Hope everyone is having a great summer!  Be sure to keep your eyes on the website Band Calendar - we are adding 2018-19 stuff on a regular basis.  What's next?  Band camp of course!  We're one month from Rookie Camp - and 5 weeks from BIG CAMP at Rock Eagle (all Marching Band members).  Marching Band Rookie Camp is for all incoming 9th graders, transfers, and first-time marchers.  

Got questions?  Contact one of the student leaders (student leadership is listed under the "about" tab at top of website).   Havea great summer!!
