Band Parent Chaperone – NEW
Any parent wishing to chaperone for the band for the upcoming school year will need to have a background check completed as soon as they can. These checks can take up to a month to process and we will need them on file before band nights start (end August). Thank you for volunteering your help is always appreciated! Please click here for a list of sites performing the background checks.
