Calendar Updated

Marching Band is the busiest time for the Wolfpack Regiment Marching Band. Mark your calendars so you can schedule family events that do not conflict with Marching Band. Every day of rehearsal missed takes twice as long to catch up. The band is only as good as attendance. It is difficult to have practice with missing students. If you have a conflict with the schedule please inform Mr. Skembos and fill out an absence form. Please do not expect Mr. Skembos or MaryKay to remember your schedule conflict without a form.

Parents we need volunteers for Band Camp, Football Games, Competitions and other events. Please contact Fara Day about volunteering. Thank you to all the parents who make this band a wonderful experience for the students.
