Annual Band Awards Banquet

banquet_logo2The Band Awards Banquet tickets are now available for purchase!

This is our end of the year awards ceremony and recognition / announcement of next year’s leadership.

It is a night you DON’T want to miss with a catered dinner, slide show reminiscing the events of the year and celebration of all of the band’s accomplishments.

Tickets are $20 each and it is well worth it!  Great food, great fun and LOTS of tears and laughs.  So get the family signed up to attend with you as they will love it!

You can purchase tickets HERE.

The banquet will be held at Grace Family Church on Van Dyke Road, at 6pm on Thursday, May 26, 2016.

Each person planning to attend must have a ticket.

  • Band students MUST get a student ticket so we know you will be there.
  • Family and friends should purchase a regular ticket through the website, or send in a check with their student.

Can’t wait to see you there!

First day – WHAT DO I NEED

It’s the FIRST DAY!!  It’s exciting and crazy, but please don’t forget that we also have our first marching band practice!

NEED TO BRING TO SCHOOL:  instrument, music, practice clothes (either change into or wear), and camelbak.  Practice is from 3:30 to 6:30pm – YOU MUST HAVE A RIDE HOME!  Be hydrated (that means drink lots of water, not coke!) and if you haven’t purchased from Charms, bring a snack for after school.  You will be glad you did!

If you have any questions, ASK!

Band Camp drop off / parking


Turn into the front entrance of the school and proceed to the Bus Circle.

If you have already paid for band camp ($60), ALL of your forms are complete (please check the list found in Charms to confirm) AND the health form is notarized, you will simply drive through the designated check-in area, drop off your forms, your student, and 1 case of water (or $10).

If any of those things are incomplete, you will park in the bus circle and come to the registration tent to complete forms / pay for band camp / get health form notarized, and turn in / buy water for $10.

Only staff and parent volunteers may park in the red zone. Students who are driving themselves to band camp may park in the blue areas.

Parent Volunteers: Please report to the Patio/Volunteer HQ on time. This week, we will be serving approximately 700 people each day. Please park in the red zone. If you have any questions before then, contact Ivana Vergara, our volunteer coordinator, before your scheduled time.

Let’s get EXCITED! Band camp is HERE!!! Go MWB!
