BAND & COLORGUARD PARENT SECTION MEETINGS: Welcome to another AWESOME year with the Bullard High School Marching Band & Colorguard!
Every year we conduct two in depth informational meetings for parents. At these meetings, the Handbook and participation forms are distributed. We do require that all parents attend one of these two mandatory meetings. If you can't attend the section meeting that you're student participates in, then you must attend the other meeting.
In order for students to participate in all band activities, these forms must completed and returned by Thursday, August 28, (First football game is the following night!). You can only receive these forms at these meetings.
If you cannot attend either meeting, you must meet with the Band Directors personally by Thursday, August 28. Please contact them asap to make the appointment.
Colorguard and percussion Thursday, August 21, 6:15 pm
Wind (rest of the band) Tuesday, August 26, 6:15 pm
These meetings will be held in the Bullard Theater. Band & Colorguard students may also attend, but not required.
