Welcome back to another great year with the Spartans Band. Your Band Officers and Band Boosters are excited to kick off the year with our annual Band/Orchestra/Chorus Parent Meeting on Tuesday, August 23, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.

Parents are strongly encouraged to attend. Important information will be given and tuxedo and dress fittings will take place that evening.  Please bring your checkbook.  ALL Band students must have a tuxedo or school approved black dress for concerts.  This is a requirement for being in band.  Tuxedo Warehouse will be there for fittings and a deposit or full payment is required to order your tuxedo. More details on tuxedo prices will be posted to the band's website in the coming weeks.
