Prior to the performance, the Band Boosters will host a potluck lunch and informational meeting/paperwork session in the ELHS Cafeteria. Parents and students can complete the required PCSB paperwork (except the student physical forms), sign up for activities, purchase spirit wear, make fair-share payments, and get questions answered.
All band members must complete the full set of PCSB forms to be eligible to participate in the band program at East Lake High School. This includes, among other things, a sports physical signed by your doctor and a notarized participation/consent form. The completed packet can be turned into Mr. Fulton in the band room. This process takes time, so get started now!
