Rehearsals


Back to handbook index
Football Band: This is a type of "Pep Band" that plays at the middle school home football games. The first two games will be the 8th-grade band members only. The 7th- and 8th-grade band members will play as a combined group for the last game.

We will have full band rehearsal for the Football Band on Aug. 26 (Thursday) and Sept. 2 (Tuesday) from 3:40 to 4:40 p.m. (This is only for the 8th grade band members.) Note: This is the only time the football band will be together as a full group. It is very important that you be present at rehearsal. Unexcused absences will result in lowering of grades and exclusion from the fall trip!

Football band expectations: All students who are in the 7th and 8th grade will participate in the Football Band. Students will sit in their sections while at the football game. (The band will be in the stands before the game to play the Star Spangled Banner then during 1st and 2nd quarters. The band will play one song during halftime and then break till the end of 3rd quarter. The students will be told if there are any changes to this before they leave the stands. The band will spend the 4th quarter in the stands and will also play one song after the game.
