Marching band practice is every Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3pm-5:30pm.
Every band student must come to practice prepared with all of the things they will need including:
GALLON SIZE WATER JUG with water/gatorade mix
cool clothing and hat
socks and sneakers
snacks for energy to eat during water breaks
instrument and music
Remember to stay hydrated through the weeks of after school marching band practice!
Remember to eat a good breakfast to start your body off well for the day!
These things really go a long way to help with energy levels and stamina throughout the school day as well as for practices and games.
