FAQ's for Band Preview and Fee Day:
Q. My student is an incoming Freshman. I am excited, but a bit overwhelmed by all this paperwork and there a lot of terms I don't know. My child has forbidden me from asking in public. Can you help me?
A. Of course. First, please ask any time you have a question. The boosters all have email links on the website and Mr. Drake wants an informed group of parents and students. Second, do your best on the paperwork, but if something isn't clear to you, bring it on Saturday and we will help you out.

Q. All right. I'll be there. Truth is, I'm getting excited about what the marching show is going to be next year. Do you have any hints for us?
