New Member Ashley Ridge Bands Spring Training THIS WEEK

Hello Middle School Band Families!

This week begins the first week of Spring Training for the Ashley Ridge High School Band.  We are welcoming all of our new members on Tuesday, May 7th and Thursday, May 9th from 4:30-6:30pm.

Your student should have come home with a flyer within the last few weeks with the following information included:


An athletic bus travels from your child’s middle school to Ashley Ridge High School.  If transportation is needed to Ashley Ridge please consult with your middle school band director about which bus to take.  Students will need to be picked up at Ashley Ridge after dismissal at 6:30pm.


Comfortable shoes to move in (no sandals/flip flops)

Water bottle


We want you to first and foremost have a great experience!  Spring Camp for our new members is meant to expose you to the activity of marching band as well as acquaint you to the high school band culture that you will be joining!  You will not be asked to march and play or do anything of that nature.  We want you to feel comfortable, learn a lot, and have fun!  Marching band and being a part of the high school band experience will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your high school career and we cannot wait to add your talents to our ensemble next year!

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at

We would also like to invite you to our Spring Concert happening this week on
Wednesday, May 8th @ 7pm in the Ashley Ridge Auditorium.  We would love to see you there!
