Other Notes:

Please enter the building each day on the side between the high school and the administration building. Follow the road behind the school to the Fine Arts area near the tennis court. The door to the band room will be directly across from the shed near the small faculty parking lot. Students, please park in the student lot at all times.

This is perhaps the most important thing that we do as an organization and your attendance and participation is required to ensure that we have another great year in the Trojan Band!
