Middle and High School Music Department Handbook

This year, in a desire to go digital and create less of a paper mess at the beginning of the year, we decided to try electronically sharing the Music Department handbook. By following the link below you will have access to all of our rules, regulations, and policies, as well as information about concert dress, a calendar of our events, etc.

All students involved in the music department and at least one Parent/Guardian, are required to review the handbook. On the final page there is a link to an online form where you will electronically sign that you have reviewed the materials and agreed to them. All responses will generate an electronic, time-stamped form so that we can keep track of who has read and agreed. Please review the handbook and fill out the form by Friday September 4, 2015 

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! We look forward to getting back into the swing of things!

Last day of band camp Re-Scheduled!

The last day of band camp was originally scheduled for Monday, August 24th.  We (the staff) has just leaned that we need to be a part of an "in-service day" from 8-3 on that day.

To make up the time lost we have re-scheduled a shorter practice on:

Monday, August 24 from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Although the first day of school is Thursday, August 27th, because we have our first "home" football game on the 2nd day of school, we will practice on:

 Wednesday, August 26th from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM.

We are asking band members to please work with the staff and re-arrange their schedules so they can be present at these practices.

As previously scheduled, marching band practices during the fall season will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:00 - 4:30 PM.  

All new members should be aware that all practices and performances are mandatory!

Thanks Everyone!

We need You!

We are in need of volunteers to pull the instrument trailer this season. This is not an all or nothing sign up, there may be more than one person who pulls the trailer throughout the season. 

There are 10 games, two parades and a festival that we will be performing this season. We ask that the person pulling the trailer be at the school at least a half an hour before our departing time to make sure we have everything loaded in a timely manner. Those times will change with each game/event, depending on the distance traveled. 

Also, because of the amount of instruments we need to take with us, we may need to use the bed or trunk of the vehicle to carry instruments as well.

Here is a link to the Trailer Pulling Sign Up Sheet. Please put your name and number in the slot you'd like to volunteer for.

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Teschler at for more details.
