We are excited to hear you play on Friday!
Plan on arriving a few minutes early, if possible to put your instrument in your locker before the start of school. For 1st period athletes - Mr. Pinkney or Ms Boltz will be here before your practice starts to open the band hall for you to take care of your instrument too!
As a General rule:
When we bring instruments to school they are to be stored in your band locker for the duration of the school day. The band hall is usually open early before school to help you drop it off and instruments can be picked up each day right after school. If you ride the bus home then we will help you determine the best time of day to pick up your instrument based on your class schedule.
If you will be using a large school instrument, Tuba, Horn, Euphonium / Baritone - depending on the number of students needed a school horn an additional instrument can be rented for home practice - this will be on a first come first served basis - students who ride the bus may be given preference - the rental fee is $100 for the year. If you need to work out financial assistance please talk to a director. We're here to help.

From the Directors!
Keep those good practice routines going!
