Hello Band Families! Thank you for your patience with us during the first month of school. The students have been working hard and we are ready to continue to push into September! In addition to our normal Tuesday/Thursday rehearsal times, here are some important dates in September. If you would like to chaperone the events, contact our Band Boosters at


We have started our Vertical Raise digital fundraiser campaign for the year. Each student is expected to participate as this fundraiser goes directly towards band uniforms and equipment. They have been asked to get 10 emails from family members that they think would donate. You can also share this on all social media. The more we share, the more likely we are to reach our goal of $35,000!

Keep up with our progress and share as much as you can!



Please email if you need your password reset for Charms. The band directors can give IDs but do not have access to passwords. Please be sure to check your student’s CHARMS account often and let us know if you have any questions.

Additionally, please note that CHARMS was bought out by another company called CUT TIME at the beginning of this year. We apologize for any difficulties and miscommunications this has or may potentially cause as they continue to develop the new software.

If you would like to donate anything to the band program that will help with our success, here are some ideas and needs:

  • Copy Paper (White and Colored)

  • Pencils

  • Batteries (AA & AAA)

  • Technology Needs (Speak to Garrett if you’re able to help)

  • Tissues



We have had a lot of students out recently for a multitude of illnesses. Students should not be sharing their food/drinks with any other student or playing each other’s instruments. We will have hand sanitizer and mouthpiece sanitizer available at all times in the band room and please be sure to clean & sanitize water jugs thoroughly.

Additionally, please make sure that your students have a large enough water bottle to help them through games and rehearsals. A gallon jug is recommended, but students need to have a half-gallon at the minimum. Students should not be sharing water bottles. The weather may finally be starting to feel cool, but we need to keep everyone healthy & hydrated!

Have a great rest of your Labor Day Holiday!

Good afternoon band families, It's finally that time of the year where we are going to start traveling! We start with an away game next week at West Florida Tech High School in Pensacola on Friday 9/8/23. Students will be coming home tomorrow with a very important form for them to travel with the band. The form has two sides and needs to be filled out to completion. All forms need to be turned in by Wednesday 9/6/23. If a student does not have a form turned in, they are NOT allowed to go to any off-campus events until it is turned in. This is a district policy. We are giving ample time to make sure the students have this taken care of and no one is stressed next Friday.


Additionally, please consider either helping in the concessions stand this Friday (Home vs. Lincoln HS) or chaperoning the away games. We need parent help and we cannot make this band go do big things without our biggest supporters - YOU! You can always sign up to help volunteer here: Thank you so much for your continued support of the Pride of the Red, White, & Blue!
