We will be taking our full marching and section pictures this Tuesday in the football stadium at 5pm. All marching band students will need to be in their full uniforms minus helmets by 5pm in the band room to line up for the picture. Make sure you bring a change of clothes as we will begin rehearsal immediately following the picture.
This Friday is an AWAY game vs Gulf Breeze HS. Please see itinerary below. If you would like to help chaperone, please CLICK HERE.
We are less than 2 weeks away from our first competition. The Blackwater Classic will kickoff competition season next Saturday, October 6th. If you have not done so already, please consider signing up to help. There are all types of ways you can volunteer at the BC. Without your help, this marching band festival will not be a success like it has been the past 2 years. We will have a walk-through meeting with all volunteers on Thursday, October 4th at 6:45. Please make plans to attend. We are especially in need of help at the concessions. We will be serving a lot of bands and guests that night! Click the links below to sign up:
