It’s time to start planning for the next Marching Band Season. We will be again hosting some Saturday events to introduce what we do to potential students. The first such event will be held on March 3rd in the band room at the HS. The other dates include April 7, and two Saturdays in May.
We are in the process of creating an Honor Band for the region. The dates for that have not been set yet, but will likely require us to cancel one of the May MB clinics. As soon as that information is locked in we will update you.
Either way you will want to keep both May 12 and 19 free for band.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey about the marching band season. It will help us plan for next year. I’d like responses filled out by November 7.

If you downloaded this prior to Sept 11, 2017 it has a mistake on it. This link is accurate as of 9-11-17.
The new site has finally been migrated to the new server. We should be over the humps now and good to go. If you find anything missing that you would like access to let me know and I’ll add it.
Sweat Week starts Monday. Remember that practice is from 7am to 2pm Monday through Saturday. After 2pm I ask that the kids not make any other plans. If we need the extra time to finish stuff or have sectionals I need the kids there.
New Content from original post:
There is no acceptable excuse for missing Sweat Week! If a student misses any of this week they will be removed from the band. It is that important. If there is a once in a lifetime conflict that you really think warrants missing some of this week the student must meet with Mr. Gibson in person prior to the conflict. The more notice the better. Only if Mr. Gibson says it is approved will it be ok to miss. Do not plan on Mr. Gibson approving anything.
Old post continued –
We will have a short parent preview Saturday about Noon. Feel free to come see what we have done. We will even give you a chance to try what they are doing. Wear some comfy shoes and something easy to move in.

Go shopping here and help the kids earn their MB Fees for 2017.
A fundraiser to help kids pay for Marching Band. Support one of our students by typing there name in as you check out, or just buy for the general fund. All products are sent directly to you and the kids get the profits. Yay for shopping!
It is that time of year again to audition for next year’s ensembles. At least time to start preparing. Please read the audition info sheet and start preparing. I will complete all auditions prior to Spring Break and will announce positions when we return to school.
The jazz audition music can be found here.
