     Band practices during A-1.  Field Practices will be on game days (Thursday or Friday).  If the game is on Saturday, band will have field practice on Friday.
     
    When football season is over, the Concert Band will rehearse and there will be no more field practice.  As we get closer to concert dates, there will be 2-3 after school practices to include our MATES, PAA and NEMS band members.
     
     
    Students who wish to be in the Band but could not fit it into their schedules,
    should see Mr. Grotto to set up after-school practice times.

    Hello Warrior Band and Drill Team:
    My name is Mr. Grotto (Mr. G.) and I am the Director of Bands at New Egypt High School.  Although I have met most of you already, I want to take this opportunity to officially welcome you to the 2017-2018 season.  I look forward to working with you as the year progresses.
     Please feel free to share your ideas on improving our program.
    Although we have a small band right now, I believe it will continue to grow.  I welcome your thoughts on how to increase membership.  Just remember: quality is just as important as quantity.
    Remember to show your Warrior Pride!
