High School Graduation - Thursday, June 13, 2024!

The Wind Ensemble will be performing at the SHS Graduation Ceremony on 6/13. Call time for graduations is 4pm (for non-seniors). The ceremony begins at 5:30 and will conclude at around 7:30. Dress is business casual, plan for the weather. If rain is in the forecast and the school postpones the ceremony, the makeup date is 6/14 at the same time.



A big project will be underway after the Memorial Day Parade, and the uniform committee could use some help. We will be numbering each uniform piece before the start of the 2024-25 season. Please reach out to Dawn if you can help.

The schedule will coincide with the color guard practice schedule - more info forthcoming.

TIME SENSITIVE: We need volunteers to help sort uniforms after the Memorial Day parade! Reach out to Dawn if you can help!

Mini Band Camp - Saturday June 1, 2024!

Mini Band Camp is Saturday June 1, 2024. All are expected to attend and we are encouraging returning parents to come with welcoming attitudes ready and willing to embrace new families as they enter the somewhat overwhelming world of the Blue Knights Marching Band.

Throughout this week, you will see messages and Remind notifications asking for your participation and donations of time (and baked goods) as we kick off the season. Thank you in advance for your support of your students and our new season!

That's all for this week! Updates for next week? Please get to me by Friday 5/31 at 7AM. Next week's Newsletter will come out on Saturday June 1st, after all of our new families have registered for the newsletter!

Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy your family, your friends, and your freedom. Take a minute to be thankful for those who gave their life in service, sacrifice, and selflessness, so we can celebrate.

Happy Memorial Day, God Bless America!
