There will be a floating meeting from 5-7pm in the band room for all students participating in Marching Band. At this meeting you will pick up music, forms, a calendar, be able to pay fees, get your health form notarized, and ask questions.
Parents please bring a valid ID to get your students health form notarized. All forms can be printed off online and filled out prior to the meeting to minimize the time spent. You can find them in the Files section of my teacher page or in the Marching Cardinals page.
Please email me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with all of you!
