What are sectionals?
Sectionals are co-curricular, meaning, they are an extension of the band class and mirror the band curriculum outside of normal class hours. Sectional time gives students the opportunity to work solely with their individual section in order to better develop skills outside of the full ensemble setting.
Who goes to sectionals?
Sectionals are REQUIRED for all wind ensemble, symphonic, and concert band students. Beginners do not attend sectionals.
What if I am sick and miss sectionals?
If a student is sick they need to communicate with the directors in order to schedule a "make-up" sectional on a different day.
What if I am in athletics and have practice before or after school?
Students are excused from their athletic practices for sectionals. The coaches are aware that some students have a sectional commitment once a week. It is the STUDENT'S responsibility to know when to leave from athletics and go to sectionals.
