Booster Meeting - The next booster meeting is Thursday September 18th at 6:15pm in the band room. All are invited to come and hear about our marching band season and other events going on.
Save the Date - Our annual Band Banquet is Saturday evening, November 22nd in the Chaparral Cafeteria. All students and families are welcome to attend. An invitation will be mailed home to you as it gets closer, but please block off the date, you don't want to miss this fabulous event that recognizes the kids and the band for all their hard work and accomplishments throughout the season.
Thank you for volunteering! We had a great turnout of parents at the game on Friday! Thank you to everyone who helped on Friday and who came to support the band! Our first home football game is Friday and it will be busy! We could use a few more people to help with set-up and clean-up. We could also use a couple people to help sell 50/50 raffle tickets. Please take a look at the sign up genius to see if you can help. Thanks!
