What Can I Bring?

Freshmen: COLD Drinks – Capri Sun, small Gatorades, small bottles of water (the 4oz size).  (Please consider icing them down in a cooler, dropping them off with your student, and picking up your cooler afterwards.)  Our students drink very little soda – so only bring soda if it is your child’s particular favorite.

Sophomores & Juniors: Salty snacks, Sweets like Cookies, brownies, Rice Krispy treats, etc – Please have any treats cut into individual servings.

Seniors: Nothing – Enjoy your last pool party with the Band!

This will be our first night of evening practice. Students will be released by the band directors to attend the pool party between 7:45 and 8:00. Students will need to make sure their instruments are secure before going to the pool party.  If your student does not drive, you may wish to pick them up at the marching field and drive them to Northwest Municipal Pool or organize a carpool. Upperclassmen often give rides, but there is usually a group of kids who end up walking over. THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE THIS YEAR AS THE VENUE HAS CHANGED. The party ends promptly at 10:00 due to City of Austin restrictions.  Please make arrangements for your child to be picked up ON TIME to avoid the band directors having to stay late.

We could use a couple of parent volunteers to help set up and clean up. Please email Marcie Davis Skonieczny at to help with this fun event!
