Please notice the beginning time of 9:00 am. Your child should be at the high school no later than 8:45 am so they have time to get to the parking lot and have their instrument ready to begin rehearsal at 9 am. 

Just a reminder:

 

Sunscreen before leaving house and bring it along to reapply. The sun is very strong on the parking lot.

Bring plenty of water - do not rely on soda machine to be working - bring a jug of water

Wear a hat to protect face from sunburn

Sunglasses

Sneakers are a must - no open toe shoes/sandals/flipflops

Bring lunch - dinner will be provided

On Friday, bring swimsuit and towel along with all of the above - rehearsal is first for a good part of the day.


If your child is going to miss band practice for ANY reason, Mr. Armstrong needs to know 2 weeks in advance.  Please read the handbook and return the paper in the back with the expected dates of absence.  If your child is sick, please email Mr. Armstrong as soon as you know that your child will not be attending practice.

DID YOU KNOW:
Deptford High School "Fight Song" was borrowed from
San Jose State University?

It is said that the Head of the DTHS Guidance Department in 1959, Mr. Roy Wager suggested that our mascot be the Spartans.  Mr. Wager also suggested that the fight song be "The Spartan Fight Song" from his alma mater San Jose State University.



Here is a clip of San Jose State
