Spring Car Wash

The car wash was a HUGE success and we raised $1,490 for the band program. Thank you to all the parents and students that worked; the parade of vehicles was non-stop the entire time!

Ride of the Patriots Weekend

Patriot Harley Davidson has been a longtime supporter of the FHS band program and invite us each year to take part in this event both as a fundraising opportunity for the band and to lead off the parade Sunday morning. It’s a great way for the band to participate in a patriotic community event. Several parent and student volunteers are needed. Also, please note we need a few parent volunteers during the school day on Friday.

2015-2016 Marching Band Info

Thanks to all the parents and students who were able to attend the Marching Band Information meeting for next year's marching band season. There was a lot of information provided including information about next year's show, home and away marching band camps, tentative season schedule with performances and locations. If you were not able to attend the meeting, you can download the information packet. Please be sure to complete and turn in the Intent Form included in the packet with your deposit. These can put in the white Booster box in the band room. Please note there is a mistake in the calendar that was included, the Mosby Woods Halloween Parade is October 25, 2015, not November 1 as printed. This will be corrected in upcoming information.
