D'Hanis PRIDE Band

Hello everyone. I hope you have had a restful summer and are ready to come back to summer band.


The summer band schedule will be as follows:


  • 7-25-17 and 7-26-17 – Percussion sectional 9:00 am -1:00 pm
  • 7-27-17 to 8-4-17 – Full band 8:00-11:00 am and 1:00 - 4:00 pm M-F
  • 8-7-17 to 8-25-17 – Full band 6-8 am and 4:00 -7:00 pm M-F


The school year band schedule will include the following:


  • Monday and Wednesday night rehearsals from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
  • Optional district band practice Tuesdays after school
  • Once per week sectionals from 7:00 am - 7:45 am



The night rehearsal on Monday/Wednesday help us to learn our marching show and the sectionals before school help us to learn to play our instruments correctly for the music of the show. The night rehearsals and sectionals will continue through contest in October.


Please be aware that absences, excused or unexcused, from the Monday/Wednesday night practices and sectionals make it difficult for you to know where you are supposed to be on the field and play your music correctly.


Band students must wear tennis shoes in good condition to summer band. Injury can occur when improper shoes are worn for a strenuous activity such as marching band.


Please wear appropriate clothing for the hot sun and bring sunscreen with you. I will have bottled water in the band hall but you may bring your own drinks with you. I would suggest if you bring your own drinks to bring water, Gatorade or PowerAde. Tea (caffeine) and sodas are not good for hydration.


I am very excited to see everyone again and begin working on marching band. Thank you.
