Additionally, we have posted signups for home game football parking - this fundraiser generates $9-10K per year and is easy - report by 5:15 PM, help collect money and get people parked and be in your seats by midway through the first quarter, in plenty of time to see the show. All instructions will be provided on day of the game. We have 5 home games this year so come help out and then enjoy the game - click here to sign up for Friday Night Home Game Football Parking!

Scary but true but band camp at Rock Eagle in Eatonton, GA starts a mere 7 weeks from this Monday. With that in mind, please click here to see what you should plan to bring to band camp - lots of important stuff to make sure you stay hydrated, don't get a sunburn or a lot of bug bites and are comfortable at night. If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out to Mr. Jenkins or Annie West. Enjoy the summer and we look forward to seeing our Marching Band and Color Guard later in July for what should be another epic band camp!
We only have 2 shows in the month of June but plenty of spots left to fill. Please consider volunteering for the following:
Thurs, Jun 6th - Florence & The Machine (2 adults spots, one student spot unfilled)
Fri, Jun 14th - Dierks Bentley (11 adult spots, 7 student spots still unfilled)
This is our largest single fundraiser staffing two beer stands on the west side of the park. Volunteering is fun, easy and you get to listen to the show! Report time is usually between 4:30 - 5:00 PM depending on when gates open (you will be alerted in advance). No prior experience is required - you'll be shown exactly what you need to do. You must, however, where either black shorts, black pants or black capris. Any other color or sweatpants is not permitted (you will be turned away) and open toe shoes are also not permitted.
