All band members are required to attend band camp. A great deal of learning and fundamental teaching takes place.

Parents, please take the time now to look at your schedules and set aside time during the fall and winter to help support your children by participating in our Class Act Boosters by volunteering your time and expertise. Even though your kids don’t tell you, they really do appreciate your support and encouragement! Our first parent meeting will be August 9th in the Band Room at 6:00pm.

Parent Meeting & Potluck Dinner -August 9th
We wil be discussing the upcoming year, and answer any questions. You will also be able to register as a Pasco County Schools volunteer, sign up for football games and other band events, pay your fairshare, and fill out necessary paperwork.
