New!! COMMITMENT NIGHT


Parents,

 

Please mark your calendar for May 18th for our first COMMITMENT NIGHT for all 9th through 12th graders who plan on participating in marching band during the 2017/2018 school year! This will replace the MANDATORY parents meeting that is usually held in July during Band Camp. May 18th and 19th are rehearsal nights for all rising 9th graders, current band members,  and upperclassman new to marching band.  This is a perfect time for freshman and upperclassman parents who are new to our band organization to hear about what is going to happen in the late summer and fall for your students. We will go over the summer dates, have intent forms for rising 9th graders, collect marching band fees, have sign-up sheets for all of our committees, get permission slips signed as well as medical forms notarized. We will have several notaries available to help with that process. Your student won’t be able to participate in any activities without a signed permission form and a notarized medical form.  The meeting will be held at 7:00pm in the main cafeteria at North Cobb High School.  We look forward to seeing everyone there and to the start of a successful 2017 marching band season.
