Newsletter, September 13, 2018

Hi, Band Families! Marching season is off and running (or, rather, off and marching), and by the looks of things the kids are going to look amazing once the whole show is complete with props (THANK YOU, PIT POPS!!) and full marching uniforms (THANK YOU, UNIFORM MOMS!)! We hope that all of you will support the band by attending the games and cheering on our kids and directors at halftime!

September and October are BUSY for the band, and we want everyone to feel ready to conquer and enjoy these next several weeks. This newsletter is a long one, but it’s packed with important information! Please take the time to read it all!
