All band parents/guardians are invited to attend the Band Parent Welcome Night hosted by the Band Parent Organization each fall. Meet the band directors and Band Parent Organization board members and learn about the upcoming year in band and how you can help and support our students. We hope to see you there!
Uniform fitting for sophomores, juniors and seniors who do not have the required marching uniform will be held in the band hallway Aug. 5-8 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The required marching shoes, which cost $35, also will be sized, so bring socks; payment for the shoes will be collected when the shoes are distributed in September. There are a few used shoes available for $10 (paid immediately), first come, first served. Please make every effort to get your uniform during these times, as there will be limited fitting times available once the school year begins; plus, the earlier you get your uniform, the greater the size selection. In September, freshmen will pay for the MHS band t-shirt, which serves as part of their marching uniform and as the pep band uniform.
Concert and Old Abe bands must have marching uniforms for the Sept 13 football game. Freshman and Eagle bands need their marching uniforms for the Homecoming parade on Sept. 27.

Monthly Scrip example (earnings split 50/50 between the band and the student):
For this example, earnings for the month = $11.50 for the band AND $11.50 for your student and potential for the year = $138 for the band AND your student, which carries over year to year!
Keep in mind, this example is before taking into account any off-campus lunch purchases your student makes on a regular basis, as well as holiday shopping, and other purchases that can made with gift cards!
More info is coming as we roll out this exciting program, so keep an eye on out for additional emails!!!
