This form is for any CURRENT Juniors or Seniors in Band, that last year would have been Sophomores or Juniors.  We were going to wait to distribute band awards from the band banquet, since priority was given to make sure the seniors received their band plaques.  

 

All current band Juniors can claim their Sophomore "pin" of their instrument, and all current band Seniors can claim their Junior "varsity letter" I just need to know WHO needs WHAT.  

 

Please complete this form, and I will have your items at the "pick-up table" by the PAC Doors and Gym 1, and you can get it from the secretary at the "pick-up table" there.

Form for Band Banquet items from 2019-2020
