The Car Wash is an optional event held at the front of the school for any band students wishing to earn money for their student band account. All monies earned are divided equally among the students who participate and placed in their accounts. Lunch will be provided for all students that sign up to help.

The Parent Workday will take place in the band room. We will be disassembling show pieces/scrims/equipment carts/etc. from the previous show, building/reworking things for this year's show, organizing the equipment room, and any other jobs Mr. Emmons has for us. Please come and join in the fun (yes, it really is fun!), meet other band parents, and be prepared to get your hands dirty! If you have any power tools such as drills or power screwdrivers, please bring them to use.

Donations Needed:

We will be accepting donations of Sport Top Water Bottle Cases to be used throughout the Marching Band Season. If you see them on sale, please consider picking up a case or two. The students go through a lot of these to stay hydrated in the upcoming warm months.

We could also use a few more coolers with attached lids (no wheels, please) to transport the water to the various events. If you have an old one in good condition, please consider donating it to the band.

All donations can be delivered to the band room.

Thanks for supporting the Lion Pride Marching Band!!
