Band Aide Day– Saturday, September 13 will be our second annual Band Aide day.  We need all parents and students to help get the word out to the community about all the great things the MP2 does during the year.  It is also an opportunity for us to raise much needed funds to support our activities.

There are a number of ways we get information out to you:

The Band Website -
Facebook - Massaponax Marching Panther Pride
Text Messages - send text @7f14b to (571)414-0586 to join
E-mail - please check your spam folder for our e-mails, because we have so many on our e-mail list some services think we are spam. 

Have a Great week and let the countdown begin to the best season ever.

Congratulations to the Massaponax Band on being a 2014 Virginia Honor Band.

Pick Up and Drop Off for band events – Please pick up and drop off your students by the stadium for band events.  This is the easiest way for me to make sure all students are safe and accounted for.  Please do not pick up and drop off by the loading docks, we have many other teams that practice out by those fields, so cars out back creates a safety issue for all of our students.
