Each student has been fitted for a uniform consisting of bib-pants, jacket, and hat. Full uniform will also include black marching shoes, black socks, and black gloves.
Marching shoes have been ordered for students who needed them. The cost is $30 and the shoes can be used all four years.
Students will be issued one pair of black gloves at no cost. If lost, replacement gloves are $5.
BLACK SOCKS ARE REQUIRED. It is a good idea to have an extra pair on hand.
Uniforms are kept in the band room in uniform bags and labeled with each student's name. Students are NOT to take uniforms home without permission from Mr. Tipton.
Students will be issued 2 t-shirts to be worn at various events throughout the year. Please keep track of these shirts! You will be charged for replacement shirts and we can not guarantee replacement shirts in your size!
In order to have enough food, water, and other supples, we ask that each student bring the following to the band hall as soon as possible:
*ALL STUDENTS - 12-pack bottled water
*SENIORS - pre-packaged cookies/snacks
*JUNIORS - cups
*SOPHOMORES - cups
*FRESHMEN - pre-packaged cookies/snacks
