Band Email 3-13-18 Uniform Turn-In and Trip Meeting



On Tuesday, March 13 (TONIGHT) at 7:00pm we will be having a Parent Meeting for our band trip to Philadelphia and New York City over Thanksgiving of 2018.  We will detail itinerary, cost, what is included, travel and hotel logistics and many other aspects of the trip.  This is an exciting time for our students as we showcase them to the City of Philadelphia and possibly a national TV audience like the DCMB did in 2014.  The meeting will take place in the DCHS Performing Arts Centre.

Special Note: The spring athletes will be holding a "meet the team" event in the PAC before our event.  Please do not plan on entering the PAC until 6:50 so that the event the athletic department is holding has a chance to clear out of the PAC.

UNIFORM TURN-IN - Monday March 19:

Seniors and Juniors 6-7:00pm
Freshman and Sophomores 7:30-8:30pm
DCHS Cafeteria

All students must turn in their uniform items and pay for any fees that might have accrued over the fall/winter.  If the times listed for your grade do not match your family's schedule, please come at the secondary time.  If you have a conflict with the entire day, please make plans to have someone drop off your items and funds for reimbursement if needed.

Outstanding Fees - Over the course of the fall and winter, if your child needed extra gloves or other accessories, we gave them their items but did not collect any money.  Please be prepared to pay for any items distributed to your band member.

Color Guard - If you rented any warm-up apparel, you must come on Monday.  If you didn't rent any apparel, you can turn in your garment bag to Mr. Wallick next week.
