There will be two rehearsals before school the week before Harvest of Harmony to put together the 9th grade and Upper-class marching bands to practice for the parade.

The 9th-grade band will also perform their show at one of the football games, most likely later in the season. Also, the 9th-grade band will be at all home games and play music in the stands with the upper-class band.

The away games are all at Seacrest Field and we will play in the stands. The band will be divided into three equal groups and have them as a smaller pep band.
