Bulldog Marching Band
A synthesis of music in motion, the Bulldog Band season runs August through November. We made a significant change in our curriculum , moving away from a competitive marching ensemble to a group that focuses on continuously learning new music for performances as the year progresses. We have several combined performances scheduled with area high schools, band days at local universities, local parades, a college visit and a grand finale for the ages at senior night in late October.
Marching band sets our summer schedule in early spring. It is available on the website and is sent home with each member before students go home for summer. Once the school year begins, we have a set weekly schedule. We have rehearsal on Monday nights from 5:30 - 8:30. We have rehearsal each Wednesday night from 5:30 - 7:30. For Friday home football games, report time is 6 p.m. unless it is 8th grade band night. Away football game band performance report times are determined by the distance we have to travel. Saturday performance times will be sent out to parents and posted a soon as they are known to the band staff. With some festivals and parades, that can be as short as two weeks before the event.
