First week information

Welcome back, Bobcat band members!

The first day of school is quickly approaching! Here is some important information you need to know about the first week back.

On Monday, August 5th, only Freshmen will be meeting at 8am. All Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will report to 4th period Advisory at 12:35pm (Lunch will be available on campus from 11:50am-12:30pm). As a result, 0 hour (Marching Band) WILL NOT meet on Monday.

On Tuesday, August 6th, ALL members of marching band will meet at our new rehearsal time, 6:40am-7:30am. We will use this time to get to know one another, collect contact information, and check out instruments. No after school rehearsal will occur during the first week.

There will be no 0 hour marching band on Wednesdays this year. First hour begins at 9am on Wednesdays.

Thursday and Friday will be our first marching fundamentals rehearsals. Please wear athletic shoes/attire and bring water. We will begin at 6:40am sharp, so please arrive a few minutes early to set up your instrument.

On Saturday, August 10th, Central will be offering free physical exams. All members of Marching Band are required to complete a physical and sign up on "Register My Athlete." Those band members who have not completed these steps by August 10th will be REQUIRED to come to school on Saturday and complete these steps. Failure to do so can result in the lowering of students' grade due to the inability to participate after week 1, and may even result in being dropped from the class. Additionally, Saturday will be a band service day, where members will assist in organizing storage rooms once physicals and athletic registrations are complete.

Please reach out if you have any questions.
