We need several parent volunteers to help with the concert uniform return nights on Thursday, April 30th from 5:30 to 7:00pm and Thursday, May 14th, from 5:30 to 7:30pm.

Please let Mindy Staten (information below) know if you are available to help with one or both of these nights. Things go more smoothly (and the lines go more quickly) when we have many volunteers!

Concert Band Uniform Return

Seniors ONLY: Thursday, April 30th, 5:30-7:00pm, Seniors wear formal attire for final concert.

All other students: Thursday, May 14th, 5:30-7:30pm

A parent or guardian must be present when returning the concert band uniform.

Uniform parts that need to be returned include:

  • Dry-cleaning receipt dated after final concert ( May 5 for underclassmen and April 25 for Seniors)

    Please plan in advance by having your concert uniform dry-cleaned prior to the scheduled return nights. If a uniform is returned without the dry-cleaning receipt, a $10 dry-cleaning assessment will be charged.

    To avoid being placed on the APS fines list, all uniform parts must be returned (This includes concert and marching uniform parts). Any missing or damaged uniform parts must be paid for as well as any remaining balance owed.
