Saks High School Band
ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS AND PARENTS
I am excited about beginning my 16th year working with the Saks Band. We have much to do to prepare for marching season. As Im sure you are already aware, great performances do not happen without much preparation, dedication and hard work. Below I have listed the schedule we will follow this fall. Look at it very closely so you will know when you are to report. We need each and every member present in order to realize any success that is ours to achieve. We will be putting the show on the field during camp. Attendance is required. Please make any problems regarding attendance known to me as soon as possible!
