Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

The Band Parent Meeting this Tuesday is easily the most important of the year. The information presented will set the foundation for the band program for the 2018-2019 school year. With the Fall Marching season kicking into high gear this year, there is a lot you’ll be needing to know. We hope to see all band parents there including current 8th grade band parents. Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Auditorium.
