The end of the school year is upon us, but the start of competitive marching band season is right around the corner with auditions beginning Tuesday, May 8.
COMPETITIVE MARCHING BAND AUDITIONS
Color Guard, Percussion & Wind Instruments: 5/8, 3:30p to 6p and 5/12, 8a to noon
Color Guard & Percussion: 5/9, 10, & 11, 3:15p to 6p; 5/12, 8a to noon
Make sure to send the $150 of the Marching Band Fund that is due May 12 so your student can participate in tryouts.
Attached to this email is the document that was handed out at our last parent meeting detailing our schedule for the summer and budget for the upcoming season.
We will NOT be having our regularly scheduled parent meeting on Tuesday, May 15, instead we will have a MANDATORY parent meeting for all marching band parents on Saturday, May 12 at 11a in the library. At this meeting you will get more detailed information about the marching band season and will need to fill out some necessary paperwork.
NEW FLAG ORDER FORM
You can find a new flag subscription order form at https://summitspartanband.org/usflags/
Renewal checks need to be submitted with a form so we can credit the correct student.

MEMORIAL DAY INSTALLATION – MAY 28
Drivers and students sign up in Charms by May 21st so we can plan routes. We only have 5 drivers and 6 students currently signed up to install almost 400 flags.

Please email summitUSflag@gmail.com by May 1st if you would like to pass your flag subscription down to another student. Include the current student name and the name of the new student receiving responsibility for the subscription. The new student must be willing to follow up on renewals.
FLAG BLITZ – JUNE 2
We are looking for drivers and students to go out into the neighborhoods to sell subscriptions from 9am – Noon. Sign up in Charms!
