Welcome to the 2015 -16 school year. Start your band school year off right by reading through our wonderful band handbook. It is a wealth of band information filled with important dates, procedural protocols, grading scales, and a bunch of great ideas.
Welcome Back to School!
While the school year officially starts next Monday we do have a few pep band opportunities that will happen before the start off the new year.
Friday evening August 28th Home football game. Please arrive at 5:45 PM if possible so that we can play the rouser during the Wildcat Walk. We will then go to the North end of the bleachers and begin playing pregame warm-up music beginning at 6:30. When you arrive, you can come in the North parking lot of Bayview and you will see other band students (and Mr. P) at the top of the bleacher section. We will be done playing after halftime. students are encouraged to stay and support the team or they may head home at that time. Please DO NOT leave your instruments at the top of the bleacher section after halftime.
Second event: 9th grade pepfest on Monday, August 31st. Students may arrive at school at 2:00 PM, and we will play a few songs during the pepfest beginning at 2:30. Peer mentors should be able to come play with us at this time.
While we hope many of you want to participate, these opportunities are optional. Additionally, we do not expect ANY incoming 9th graders to be at these events. If any incoming 9th graders want to come and hang out and see what pep band is all about, we will have some music folders available for Friday night!
Thanks all and we hope to see you Friday night!
