Looking for students to help with props…

We are looking for students to help with Props for this year’s field show. It can be anyone who is in 7th-12th grade that attends any Kingston City School. Please contact Julia Hack if you or anyone you know who would be interested (younger siblings of band students????). Its a great way to get involved in the band and is a lot of fun!

Did you know…

As the school year ends and summer begins, it’s time to think about relaxing with your friends, family vacations and of course, Marching Band!! While the new school year is 2 months away, there will be lots of activity starting right away with Freshman Marching, Sectionals and Full Band Rehearsals…and that’s just July and August. Then comes band camp (dates here)! This will be an overwhelming time for new new students and parents alike. There is so much going on, it’s important to stay on top of all that is happening.

We have put together a Did You Know list to help you through this. Please also feel free to reach out to any parent at any time if you’re not sure of something. Looking forward to another successful marching season.

Freshman Parent Buddy Program

 

Remember your Freshman year??  The Freshman Parent Buddy program is finally getting off its feet.
This year we want to connect Freshmen Parents with a Buddy that will help them get through the year.
These buddies would be responsible for answering questions and general guidance for an assigned Freshman family.
If you are interested in being a buddy to one or more freshmen parents, please email Michele Milgrim at [email protected].  Thanks!
