  • Message from Mr. Hughes:

    Calling all actors! The band students did such a great job with the chrome book videos last year that you have been requested to do a few videos this year for the PBIS committee. If you are interested please send me a message in Remind and I will give you details.

    The band will be playing at the Back to School Night on August 23. This will be in place of our normal rehearsal. We will need to perform as a group and in small ensembles. If you are interested in playing together as a small group please let me know who your group is and what instruments you will be playing. Colorguard will get instructions from Mr. Hughes and Ashley about what you will be performing.

    Invite your friends, neighbors, siblings, cousins, etc. Band camp is coming and we want everyone involved!!

    Have a blessed and prosperous evening!

    Dues for the Outdoor Marching Band Season

    Dues for the outdoor marching band are $90.
    If you do not choose to pay in full upfront, we offer the following payment plan:
    8/01 - $25.00 10/01 - $20.00
    9/01 - $25.00 11/01 - $20.00

    This allows you to spread out your payments throughout the season as well as give you the chance to fundraise to help pay off your balance.

    Due to the pandemic, we did not send out our Student Account Statements as we usually do. Many were sick, out of work and just plain burdened in one way or another by the pandemic. We did not wish to add to anyone's burden. Payments requests were made in the via the band packet, verbally, and on Facebook. Our monthly statements will resume again by the end of this month. If anyone would like a copy of their statement in the meantime, please feel free to email me your request at

    Thank you,
    Denise Williams
