Welcome Freshmen, get ready for Pep Band!
We want you to be ready when school starts, so here's what you need to know for 2016-17:
- Pep Band jackets - You will need to purchase a Pep Band jacket for the football season (approx $35), and the first home game is Sept. 9. You will learn more at the first Freshmen Pep Band rehearsal on 8/22/2016. New this year, you will also be given a t-shirt.
- Pep Band music - sheet music might be posted ahead of time, but you'll learn more on 8/22/2016. Sheet music is usually posted in CHARMS.
- Pep Band rehearsal - the Pep Band starts practicing a week or two before school starts, with the drumline practicing every day and the full pep band rehearsing 2-4 days. Check the "Calendar" page (which is the Charms calendar) for dates and times.
- Communication - Your Charms information from middle school will be rolled up to high school, so make sure it is valid and complete (especially email!), because that is how communications are sent out. Information will be sent out before school starts, so don't wait until then. There is also an informal Mount Si bands facebook page, but this is not used for official communication.
- CHARMS - We use the Charms system for managing all band information and communication. You will learn more about this later, but it is important that we have a good email address for you in this system. If you are new and don't know what CHARMS is, email Mr. Wenman ASAP!
- Calendar - the calendar page on this website is kept up-do-date through our "Charms" system, and you can sync it to your online calendar. See the instructions on the Calendar page.
- Questions? This website is maintained by the Band Boosters and Mr. Wenman. You can reach the boosters at firstname.lastname@example.org, and Mr. Wenman at email@example.com.
