Marching Band
The 2015-16 State High Marching Band
Emergency Contact/Medical Form - Fill it out, print it out, have parent/guardian sign it, and give it to Mr. Schunk.
The State High Marching Band is an extracurricular activity involving nearly 200 students in grades 9-12.
It is open to any student enrolled in one of the concert bands, and to Dance Team and Majorettes by audition.
The band combines the modern band appearance and sound with traditional music education philosophy
by presenting different music at each home football game.
The band rehearses two evenings a week, and performs each Friday during the football season.
Since the band does not compete, our band students are free on Saturdays for employment, college visits, and leisure time activities.
To register for marching band, see the Marching Band Registration link for an application form and more information.
For the medical form and other information, see the Forms & Handouts page
