2018 Marching Band Season (grades 9-12)

Sign up to helping feed all the band members during the 3rd quarter of the HOME football games. It's very simple and the students really appreciate it.

Duties include:  Going over to the white tent on the visitor side about 15 minutes before half time. We will get things set up so that we can take turns watching the half-time show. At the beginning of the 3rd quarter of the game, the visitor's band will come and get something to eat followed by our band. After the bands have eaten, we clean up.

Chaperoning is a fun and rewarding way to be involved with and help the band. Every time the band moves (parade, away football games, festivals, outside performances), chaperones are there to:

  • help to ensure the safety and well-being of the band;
  • make sure the band and the directors/advisors have all of the equipment they need when and where they need it;
  • load and unload the band trailer;
  • make sure students behave appropriately on the buses; and
  • put band aids on boo-boos and ice packs on bumps and bruises.

Chaperone opportunities also exist after marching band season. There is the OMEA contest in March/April, and sometimes the concert band/wind ensemble and the jazz bands have opportunities to perform outside of the school. 

Duties include:  Many and varied, please click HERE for a detailed description of chaperone duties!
