The Sanderson Band has a long history of excellence, dating back to the school's opening in 1968. Currently, the Sanderson Band program consists of the Marching Spartans, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and various other small ensembles, as well as annual performances with the Sanderson Theater Department in the spring musical. The band has performed extensively across North Carolina and the Southeastern United States in both marching band competitions and concert band festivals. Each year many Sanderson Band students are selected for All-District, All-State, and Governor's School, and many alumni are pursuing music degrees at some of the country's finest universities.

Thank you for taking time to learn about the Sanderson High School Band. We hope to see you at one of our many performances throughout the year!

Check out the Sign Up Genius (Tailgate SignUp) and indicate what main dish, side dish or dessert you will be bringing and note the number of family members attending in the comments box. Unfortunately, band students will not be joining us as they will be prepping for their performance. RSVP by Monday, August 27th. Questions?

GoPlaySave Coupon Books

There's about one month left to sell the GoPlaySave coupon books. Remember that 50% or $15 for each book sold goes directly to your child's fair share. Just selling 10 books earns you $150. That's a pretty good deal! Lisa will be available at school on Wednesday, August 22nd from 4-8 PM. She is chaperoning the rehearsal; look for her in the marching practice lot near the gym/auditorium. If you need additional books or want to turn in money this is the time. She'll also be at the Band Booster meeting on Monday (7 PM) if you want to get up with her at that time. Happy selling! Questions? Contact Lisa Rodabaugh, GoPlaySave Chair (goplaysave@sandersonband.com)

Chaperones for After School Rehearsals

We need volunteers to come help with rehearsals that are scheduled once school starts. Volunteers will help with water, snacks, and minor medical needs. Check out the Sign-Up Genius to see if you can take a shift for one of the After school rehearsal dates; we cannot conduct rehearsals without Adult Supervision. Also, there are still a few spots available for the August rehearsal dates before school starts: August rehearsal dates. Questions?
