We have several dates coming up that involve current 8th-11th grade students who plan on participating in Alexander’s Band program.  Some are for students who want to participate in marching band and some are for all students.  We understand that there are various trips with the middle schools and we have tried to avoid too many conflicts.  We will work with any issues on an individual basis.  Several documents with information are available on the band information and forms page of this website.

Check the calendar on this site for the most up to date times and days for rehearsals.

If you would like to expedite the process for band sign-up night.  Please print the following forms and complete them.  On sign-up night, you will turn in these forms and a $100 deposit for marching band.
