It is already time to start the process of choosing our 2019-20 Marching Band leadership. We have an extensive process by which students are selected, starting with a written application. This application is used for both Field Commanders and Squad leaders. Students- if you wish to be considered for both, you need only complete this once. If you are applying for the Field Commander position, please be sure to select the appropriate option in the form when asked.
Field Commander applications are being accepted NOW through Tuesday, April 9th (which is also the first after school clinic). Please remember that a prerequisite requirement is that you have accumulated 50 squad leader points before now.
Field Commander Clinic Dates– these are not required, but highly recommended.
April 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, 23rd.
Squad Leader applications will be accepted starting on April 26th.
Attention all Seniors!! To recognize your time in the program and your commitment to this community, we like to assemble a program that reflects our thanks. This program will be available to all at our Spring concert, so parents and families are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Seniors- Please complete the Senior Program Form so that we can gather the necessary information. Please complete this by Thursday, April 18th.
We are about a month and a half away from our Superhero Run 5K and Kids Dash, which means we definitely need ALL of your help to make this event a success. If you have not already done so, please like our pages and posts on social media, and mark your calendars for Sunday, April 28th so that your family can plan to either attend, volunteer, or run the race! I have included the registration link below!
To promote this race, students are being asked to do a poster canvassing event on Tuesday, April 2nd. This is completely voluntary, but students will be traveling to the various Hilliard area businesses asking to simply hang our flyer in their stores as a way to spread the word about this event (we will not be asking for money). Sign-ups for this are in the band room as well as parent permission forms, which includes a spot for parent volunteers to help with driving students! We would love to have 60-70 people so that we cover as many Hilliard area business as possible, so please encourage your students to sign-up!
The Volunteer page is now closed. Please see the Donations Sign-Up Genius for what is still needed. All items can be brought to the Band Room. All Cliff Bars must be donated by Wednesday, April 24th for the bag stuffing, taking place that evening at Davidson.
Chaperone Meeting – Thursday, April 18th 6:00pm in the band room.
This is a required meeting for any parents chaperoning the trip. We will be discussing lots of information including logistics, as well as information critical to the safety of our students. It is important to have all chaperones in attendance. Please contact a director ASAP is there is a conflict.
Student Meeting – Thursday, May 9th 3:00pm in the band room
This is a required meeting for all students planning to attend the trip. We will be discussing the itinerary, rules/regulations, and safety guidelines. Please plan on attending. Please contact a director ASAP if there is an unavoidable conflict,
As we prepare to march in the Magic Kingdom, it means dusting off our marching shoes! We have several rehearsals scheduled in the spring as listed below. They are also on the band calendar. Students are expected to attend at least 3 of the 4 rehearsals.

We are constantly impressed and amazed at the support this program receives from the Hilliard Community. We are so thankful for everything you do for us and all the ways you show your appreciation for the arts. If you were at home on Saturday, August 25th, you likely had someone come to your house and ask for support. We are also fortunate enough to be able to offer an online donation option. If you would like to donate to the music program, please follow the link below. Thanks for everything you do!
Now that we are into the school year, please remember that practice is everyday Monday- Thursday after school from 3-5pm. If you have an issue with attending all or part of a rehearsal, please be sure to communicate this to Mr. Shultz PRIOR to the absence. As always, being water and your best attitude to rehearsal. It may also be wise to bring a snack for after school as many students eat lunch before 11am. Thanks.
Please also see our Calendar of Events to make sure you know what is coming up on the horizon. We work hard to get everything we can possibly think of posted on that calendar. With that said, please reach out if you find something we have missed or incorrectly publicized- we would LOVE to know about those items so we can all stay accurately informed.
