Band Tutorial Time

During the fall semester, the Stratford Spartan band will have rehearsals Monday-Thursday from 4:00-5:45 pm. In these rehearsals, the students will learn music, drill, and choreography for the football games and contests. Since it is an athletic activity, students will need to be well-prepared for these rehearsals. Each student will need athletic shoes, athletic shorts, a water jug, sunglasses/hat, and sunscreen.
