Band class fulfills the current course requirement for fine arts. This class is performance based, requiring participation in all school, county and state band activities as determined by the director. After school rehearsals are required in preparation for these adjudicated events. Additionally, band class performs at both the winter and spring concerts.

Auditions are open to all students. STEM students are welcome and highly encouraged to take advantage of the after school Music Activity Period and receive their Fine Arts Credit (for STEM students only).
