The band takes charter buses to the regional, state, and National competitions. Since they've already left their uniforms at school, that's one less thing to remember in the early morning hours on Saturday. Here are a list of some items that your student may want to bring along, none (except lunch money) are required:
1. blanket and/or pillow - most fall asleep on the way home
2. money for lunch
3. snacks/drinks - please try not to send lots of sugary items...for obvious reasons
4. electronics are OK, please send headphones if your child wants to listen to music
5. appropriate movies - the bus has a dvd player, movies can be vetoed by chaperones
6. books, homework, etc to keep them busy on the bus
