Jenks Band! Hope you have had a great summer. We are looking forward to seeing everyone and excited to get marching band started. Here are a few things that you need to know for the first rehearsal:

All students will check in at the band room on Monday morning. Doors will be unlocked at 7:30am. All students will enter in from the South Glass doors. Check in tables will be assigned by last name. Anyone who has not paid their fees or turned in the proper forms may do so at this time - but the preference is for it to be turned in ahead of time. Students will not be allowed to participate and sent home until these are taken care of. 

A list showing the status of physicals and medical releases as of July 20th is available HERE. Medical release forms were filled out and turned in at registration in May. If a student still needs to turn in a medical release, that form can be downloaded HERE. If a person still needs to turn in a physical, that form can be downloaded HERE. All fees and payment information can be found on the Band Parent Website.

After everyone has checked in, we will meet as a full group in the main band room for welcome time, introductions, and initial information. After that, we will go to the track for outside morning rehearsal. Instruments will not be used at the first outside rehearsal, but will be used later that morning for the first indoor rehearsal and sectionals.
