Saturday, October 25 – VBODA East State Marching Band Assessment
All hands on deck, we have 30 bands and will need help from all parents and students to make this day run smoothly.  Our performance time is 5:45PM, more information will follow next week.

Keep the water jugs coming – Students are encouraged to drink water throughout the day, so please send them with their water jugs.  This also saves us on cups and makes breaks go quicker since we are not waiting in line, plus they drink more which is good.

Updated (7/15) Fall Calendar is now posted click here to view.

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.
