Upcoming Band Events

***Activities to be determined by guidance on Coronavirus***

The band trip to Memphis has been cancelled. See note from our Band Booster President, Brad Warren:


To our band families,

Thanks to you and our amazing students for a dynamic effort to get our band to Memphis, TN, April 3-5, 2020.

Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our trip is cancelled.

Our tour operator is working with us now to secure a refund, but due to the volume of requests without precedent, this may take 4-8 weeks to process. Our tour operator is waving their traditional cancellation policies, and will work to restore our funds.

We will follow-up with you on a family-by-family basis regarding your specific refund and your desire for next steps.

Our Band Booster meeting, scheduled for this Thursday, is also cancelled.

Thanks to all for your amazing support, patience and understanding. You have made this Band Booster year great.

This is all we know at this time, but we will be in touch as soon as we learn more.

Until then, wash your hands (20 seconds!) and be well.

Congratulations to the Southeast Band for winning "Most Creative" in the Heartland Credit Union Battle of the Bands

Southeast senior Jack McLaughlin produced this video, with the help of drum major, Alex Remolina, and other members of the Southeast Marching Band. Heartland Credit Union and Channel 1450 recognized it as the "Most Creative" submission, awarding the band $500. The band will use that money toward its Spring Trip to Memphis in Spring 2020. Congrats to the Southeast Band. #SpartanPride
