This information has been put together by a group of parents with various degrees of experience in the Kell Marching Band world. In the many hours spent together watching practices and performances, waiting to pick up kids, and following yellow school busses, we have learned valuable information.
When our children first joined the band, we, of course, wanted to know what we should do. After all, the only people who were even more confused, and looking to us for answers, were our children. We wanted to share with the “upcoming rookie parents” some of the answers to these many questions before we too forget how it felt not knowing what was going on…(of course we still don’t have all the answers)!
Being a member of the Kell High School (KHS) Band Program will bring your children an exciting and fulfilling educational experience. They will work hard and experience many triumphs, as well as somedisappointments; two things that will prepare them for the real world after high school.
We sincerely hope this guide will answer some important questions about time management, time commitment, band fees and how to pay for them, fundraising, and uniforms. We would also like to give you some “insider” information on what it takes to be a band student, and a band parent!
