Stay up to date by syncing your calendar to the band’s calendar. In an effort to help our rising 9th graders learn the 4th of July Music and help them feel better about marching, we have added some Rookie Camp dates for them. We will meet on Mondays from 4:00pm – 6:00pm beginning on May 8. May 8, 15, 22. Thank you for attending if you are available.
