CUTHBERTSON CAVALIER BAND
VERY TENTATIVE FALL SCHEDULE 2018*
*All dates are subject to the Union County BOE 2018/19 school calendar
It’s that exciting time of the year when we begin our 2018-2019 marching season. In order to put the show on the field we need to know our marching member numbers. Please note that marching band requires an extra commitment, and it is a time consuming endeavor. 100 % attendance at all Cuthbertson Marching Band rehearsals, sectionals, and performances is mandatory and is vital to the success of our program. It is very important that your child attend all related activities: attend every day of band camp, every practice, every football game, every competition, and all parades. If we have a vacant spot, it really shows on the field. With all that being said, we also believe that this is one of the greatest and one of the most rewarding experiences your child will have during their school tenure – certainly the one with the most fun!
