Marching Band Information and Forms
NOTES FROM A SECOND YEAR BAND MOM
Welcome to one of the great music programs in Cobb County. You will be so glad your student is here having this amazing experience. We though we’d share some things that are so much a part of the program that no one thinks to tell you. We hope you find them helpful.
THE MARCHING BAND PROGRAM
Marching Band is an extra curricular activity (like a sport or club). Marching band has two possible levels of participation:
Competition Band has summer rehearsal, a week long summer camp and regular practices 3 days a week. This group performs at football games on Friday nights, parades and about 3 competitions each fall.
Friday Night Marching Band attends abbreviated portions of summer camp, practices on friday night prior to the football games, performs at the football game and have the option of participating in parades and community performances. They do not compete.
Dinner between school and game
Every football game Friday (home or away), the band offers the option to participate in ordering a sandwich dinner from Which Wich. The meals will be brought to the school and will be ready and waiting for you or your student between the end of Friday Night Band practice and call time. No rushing to school with a dinner for your student or packing an extra lunchbox meal.
If you'd like to place an order please see our Friday Night Dinners page for online ordering instructions.
