The Fall dates listed above are REQUIRED for members of the Burnt Orange Band.
Please avoid scheduling Family Reunions, your Quinceañera, driving school, or other events on these dates.
These dates are provided to assist you with planning your summer holiday. Please understand that is virtually impossible to finalize the entire summer schedule in April: updates (if necessary) can be found on the band webpage as soon as they become available.
DATES above should not change and are REQUIRED, however, some of the August timing (time of day, not date) may change once we have more details on MISD Staff Development.
Questions regarding the schedule can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer band attendance is crucial to the success of our ENTIRE year. Students who miss summer band will NOT be considered for a spot in our 2019 marching show. Thank you for your flexibility and commitment to the Burnt Orange Band.
