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

– The Sherman-Ewing football game is schedule for Thursday, October 6. High school band members are encouraged to show their support for the Junior High Bands by cheering them on during halftime performances.

– Next week’s Football Game (Friday, October 7) is our homecoming football game and is also 8th grade night. This is our 8th grade band members’ first experience with marching band. Be sure to make it a positive and meaningful experience for our future Band of Gold members!
