Class Registration and Band Contracts
We hope you are in the process of thinking about your class options for next year. Below is a list of the classes we prefer you sign up for when you register. If you submitted something on paper that says something other than this, it’s ok. I know registration has started for some grades already. Remember that the titles of these classes do not matter, so just register the number that you see. Each class represents a semester and 0.5 credit, but the classes are paired together (you have to register for both to be enrolled). For those doing marching band and concert band you will sign up for a total of 4 numbers.
Band contracts will be given out soon and due Friday, April 1st. This will tell us what your band commitment is for next year (marching band or concert band only. Football band is no longer an option. If there is a student that has an activity conflict with marching band, but still wants to do limited marching band we will treat these on an individual basis - there must be a direct conflict for us to consider). This allows us to prepare accurate numbers for our Fall halftime show. We spend late spring and summer getting the music and drill complete. Please be thinking about your commitment for next year.
