Monroeville Competition Notes

With our first competition of the season about 4 hours away, there is a lot of coordination necessary in order to make this event happen, ensure everyone is safe, and that the band is ready to compete. This is a very long day (almost 24 hours) start to finish. As such, we do not have the luxury of running to the band room or calling a parent for forgotten items. Each student is responsible for the following:

  • ARRIVE ON TIME Saturday morning: 5:30 AM @ FHS
  • Bring Band uniform in garment bag (show shirt, bibbers, jacket, drill shoes, black socks, gloves)
  • Bring Guard uniform (Make-up kit, Hair spray, brush, bobby pins, Unitard, Nude Body Suit, Guard Shoes, Rifle)
  • Bring your Instrument, if it is not already at the school
  • Bring bag lunch, drinks, snacks for the day (dinner will be provided)
  • Bring money for snacks, drinks
  • Bring any necessary medications, properly labeled with student's name in a ziploc bag (give to Mr. Johnson Saturday morning).

Your student will be asked to call you when we are 30-60 from arriving back at the school. Our estimated arrival is 4:30 AM Sunday morning. Please be prompt when picking up your student, our staff and chaperons have had a very long day, but must wait to leave until every student has been picked up. Monroeville Info
