What you need to know


Who: 8th Grade Band Students

What: 8th Grade Night with the WCHS Marching Band

When: Friday, October 25, 2019 at 5:15 pm 

Where: Jaycee Stadium

On Friday, October 25, all 8th grade band students will participate in 8th grade night with the high school marching band. Students will get to play at the Jacket Walk, in the stands during the football game, and during the half time show. Students will report to Jaycee Stadium by 5:15 pm at the old lunch room. They will wear blue jeans and their grey band t-shirt, which you need to purchase- details on another sheet.

In preparation for this night, 8th grade band students will be going to WCHS to rehearse with the high school band on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. We will walk to the high school at 1:30 pm. Students will not return to MPMS. Parents will need to pick up their child at 5:00 pm from the high school. We will have an indoor music rehearsal and then students will spend the remaining time on the practice field in order to know where they will stand for the halftime show. 

8th grade night is mandatory for all band students to attend. This will count as a performance grade. If students have dance or majorette experience and would like to perform with the auxiliary line that night, they may do so. Please email me if you have any questions.
