All 8th-grade band members are required to participate in the Football Band. All 7th-grade band members will join the 8th-grade band members in the last game or two. Each student will be expected to remain in the stands for the entire game. Games generally end between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m. We will wear blue jeans or shorts, the Booth Band shirt (available through Mr. Burton), sneakers and hats, if you wish.

We will report to our Bandroom at 4:15 p.m. for warm-up (on home games . . . at this time we are not attending any away games, this may change). Please be on time!
