It’s time to start thinking about Pep Band! We’ll have the two bands (Red & Gray) posted in the band room this week. Pep band is required for all band members – we split the band in half so they don’t go to every game. All pep band activities are worth 25 points each. Students may attend their off nights for 25 points extra credit.
Here’s the schedule:
Monday, 11/20 – Rehearsal for everyone – 3:15-4:15
Tuesday, 11/28 – First game for everyone – meet at 6:15pm
Friday, 12/8 – Red Game – 6:45pm

We will be placing pep band t-shirt orders soon. I’ll have more details asap.
