Attention Parents!

– We encourage our parents and band supporters to cheer loudly and enjoy the band from the stands. Due to safety, limited space, and athletic department rules, adults in the end zone must have a chaperone or equipment badge.

IMPORTANT – Please do not park on either side of the fire lane at any time. This is the drive that loops around directly to the band room and to the front of the GAC entrance. Parents are asked to find a designated parking spot to drop off or pick up your son/daughter.


Upcoming Events

– This Friday is Band Picture Day. We will get on uniforms immediately after school. Full Band and Section pictures will be at 3:30pm, with individual pictures thereafter. Band members having individual pictures taken must sign up for a time on the music office window. Order forms and money should be turned in to the photographer that day.

– Next week’s Football Game is away versus Dublin Jerome.

– Each year, the band does an open rehearsal and performance at Fulton Field prior to our first contest. This year, it will be held on Thursday, September 8.

The band will perform their competition show at the end of rehearsal, at approximately 8:20pm.

– Our first home game will be Friday, September 9.

– Our first competition is scheduled for Saturday, September 10 at Licking Heights High School. We expect to perform at approximately 7:30pm. Report time will be early afternoon. Stay tuned for details.
