Upcoming Marching Band Events

Congratulations to the Cadets on a fantastic two weeks of band camp! It was a very productive and successful several days of music and marching, and we’re so excited to head into the 2019 season with such a great start! We were happy to see so many parents, friends and alumni in the parking lot to watch our first run-through and invite everyone back every Wednesday evening throughout the season (staring on the 21st) to cheer on the Cadets during their 8:45 run-through.

Remember, there will be no marching band activities the week of August 12th. Enjoy the week off!

On August 19th and 20th, from 6:00 – 8:00, we’ll be distributing uniforms to all new band members or anyone who wasn’t able to pick up a new uniform in the spring (please return your old one if you haven’t yet). Mr. Duffy will send out an email with more details about these evenings.

On August 28th, we’ll be holding a parent meeting prior to the run-through. Starting at 7:00 pm, all parents are encouraged to check out the volunteer opportunities for the season and to sign up for one, two or as many things fit into their schedules. Events like the Fox River Invitational (Sept 29th), Homecoming Dinner (Sept 20th) and Flamingo Friday (February 21st), along with opportunities to work on the truck crew and as a chaperone for competitions will be open to many volunteers. Then at 7:30, we’ll discuss these events, uniform care and more before finishing up and heading to the run-through in the stadium parking lot. We hope to see everyone there!
