#2- Please wear your practice shirts to rehearsal everyday. Be sure that you are dress appropriately and are prepared for the heat. Please eat a healthy breakfast and don’t forget your WATER JUG. If you come to rehearsal unprepared we will have to send you home with an unexcused absence.

#1- Students will be given two forms that require a parent signature:

One is a UIL Acknowledgment form the other says that you have read and understand the Band Handbook. The Band Handbook can be found on the Charms website and please read over it.
