Nationwide Children’s Superhero 5K

On April 30th, we are partnering with Orphan World Relief to host a 5K in support of both programs.  We are incredibly fortunate to have received many generous sponsors this year, all of whom have generously contributed to our fundraising efforts and proved that a community can come together in support of the arts and humanities.

If you have not already registered for the race, please take a second to do so.  There will be a Kids’ Dash at 12:45 and the 5K will start at 1:00.  And, as our title suggests, Superhero costumes are not only welcomed, but encouraged.  There will be prizes for the race winners in each age bracket as well as for best costume, so start pulling out those capes and wigs now!  For information about the event, please visit anyone of the following places, including our Facebook page which has links on how to register as well.

Thanks in advance for your support of the event.  We will see you all at the Davidson Stadium on April 30th!


2017-18 Medical Form

We ask that every student/parent of a student who will be participating in band at the high school next year completes the above medical form.  Even if a student is “concert band only”, this form is very absolutely necessary for any travel we might do as a band.  Please note that there are sections regarding insurance and health concerns that we will be sure to protect and keep private.

At the very end of this form, we have included a section regarding parent involvement.  Please consider these opportunities seriously- without the amazing support of our families, we would not be able to do many of the things we do at the level we do them!  Know that putting your name in at this time is not binding, but merely shows us that you are interested in learning more about how to help the band program in that way.

Please have this form submitted by Wednesday, May 17th.


2017-18 Summer Attendance: Winds ONLY

This is one of the most important documents we release with regards to planning for the upcoming season.  Attendance at ALL of these dates is a major part of our success and is essential to the functioning of our rehearsals.  Please check the dates that are listed in this form VERY CAREFULLY and add them all to your family and personal calendars.  There are dates that pertain to both the 4th of July parade and all of our Band Camp events.  Also please note that these dates sometimes apply to specific portions of the band, so pay close attention to the descriptions for each date.

Also- please note that we are asking you to choose the dates only if you can NOT attend.  Checking none of the boxes will indicate that you are available for every date and is ideal!

Please have this form submitted by Wednesday, May 10th.


2017-18 Squad Leader Application

Any student entering their 10th-12th grade year and have accumulated the necessary Squad Leader points are eligible to apply for Squad Leader.  All selected square leaders should plan to attend the leadership meeting on Thursday, May 18th after school.

Please have this form submitted by Wednesday, May 10th.


Field Commander Clinic Dates–  All clinics will be held in one of the music rooms.  Exact locations may vary due to use by other organizations. These clinics are not mandatory and will not directly affect your audition eligibility, however it is highly recommended that you attend as many as possible.  History has shown that these clinics do pay off when it is time to perform the audition.

The Clinic Dates are: April 10th, 13th, 17th, 20th, and 24th from 2:45-4:00pm.
