CHAPERONES NEEDED!

Hello Everyone,

It is that time of year again and we are looking for chaperones for all our band events.  Football games as well as competitions. Please let me know if you are available to chaperone any of the events listed.

It is a practice of the band booster chaperones to chaperone at least 2 events (including band camp) before chaperoning a Syracuse trip.

Football Games – Sept 30th (homecoming); Oct 7th and Oct 14th

Competitions – W. Genesee & Auburn Oct 1&2 (overnight); Arlington Oct 9th; Vestal Oct 15th; Syracuse Oct 29&30th (overnight)

You must have filled out a chaperone sheet and handed it into Mr. Gieblehaus and be approved, in order to chaperone.

If you would not like to receive emails concerning chaperoning events, please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your help,
Denise

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.
