I hope you are all looking forward to an exciting year as the “Pride of Coldwater”. You have made an OUTSTANDING choice to continue as a member of the band family. You will be representing yourselves, our school, and our community for thousands of spectators. We place a high expectation on our work ethic, appearance and performance. I am looking forward to seeing you. So that we may have a successful start to the 2019-20 season, please review and take care of the following by the listed deadlines (Click BOLD CAPITALIZED LINKS):

While attendance is mandatory for band events, we do realize that there are occasions where it a student may need to request an excused absence. This is done through the EXCUSED ABSENCE FORM.
