The casual uniform is a blue polo shirt with band logo and either black jeans or tuxedo pants depending on the event. Students pay for their polo shirts and are sized during uniform distribution nights. The shirts are distributed during class once they arrive. These only need to be purchased once unless the size changes or the shirt is lost.
Marching UniformThe marching uniform is a patriot style uniform with jacket, bibbers (pants), and a three cornered hat. The hat, jacket, bibbers, shoe buckles and garment bag are loaned to the students. The fittings are by appointment only during uniform distribution nights in August. Students are expected to dry-clean their uniform a minimum of every other wearing. White jackets worn by tubas and percussionists must be dry-cleaned every week.
The concert uniform consists of black tuxedo pants with a black banded-collar tux shirt and a button cover. Students are required to purchase this uniform.Students will be fitted for the shirt and pants during uniform distribution. We will collect payment at that time.The students are responsible for wearing close-toed black dress shoes (or Bando marching shoes without the shoe buckles from marching season) with black socks.
Learn how to add the very import patriot buckle to your marching shoes.
Marching All issued uniform parts are school property. You are completely responsible for lost or damaged uniforms. Please be sure to review the Uniform Care Booklet. It contains important information for students and parents. Please do read it carefully, and keep it in a safe place for reference. Please take note of the lending policy!
Students will sign up for a fitting appointment time during band camp. They will be able to check their appointment time on the window outside Mr. Wharton’s office beginning the first day of school.
All students must come during the 30-minute appointment window they signed up for. Uniforms will be distributed shortly. Click the link below for more information.
Each student will be issued (loaned) the following:
During Distribution, each student will be given a band T-shirt to wear to band functions. New students will receive a duffel bag in which to carry shoes, music, poncho, etc.
The Band Boosters maintain student band accounts for any student who would like to participate. The students fund their band account by participating in student account fundraisers. Such as selling calendars or entertainment books.
Parents and students cannot place money directly into the accounts. Money is earned only through the fundraisers. The account can be used to pay for band related items, including fees, uniforms, trips, etc.
Selling one entertainment book will place $10.00 into a student’s account. If a student comes to a game or concert and has forgotten socks, gloves or button covers, he/she can use the account to purchase the items. Having at least $10.00 in a student account gives the students a safety net for hectic Friday evenings.
Many students use this tool as a way to raise money for the trip we take every 4 years. When a student graduates, any unused money either transfers to a sibling’s account or to the band’s general scholarship account.
