Competition reminders

We hope to see many of our family and friends supporting us at Perkins! Please remember to arrive early and give yourselves plenty of time to park and get seated. Here is a link for more information.
Perkins HS Band Competition information
Please ensure that your student eats a good meal before call time. It is always a good idea for them to pack some snacks and some water to stay hydrated. They should also have money on hand for concessions. A word of advice: it is much easier to give your student cash to take with them than to find them at the competitions. The will have a designated time frame to go to concessions and it varies as to before or after their performance depending on the competition schedule. Even though the students perform at 6:45 pm, they will be getting dressed and ready to meet their band host more than an hour before.

FCMB Magnets are now available!
