Dear Symphonic Band Members and Parents,

The Marching Saints performance in the St. Charles Electric Christmas Parade is just around the corner.

Here are the specifics for the day:

Date: Saturday, November 26

Call Time for Uniforms: 3:45 PM

Dress: We plan to be in full uniform (Black shoes, socks and a black shirt are mandatory. Please take the temperature into consideration when planning what to wear under the uniform. Hooded shirts cannot be worn.)

Transportation: We will travel by school bus between East and the parade

The parade begins at 5:30 and we will return to East immediately following our performance. We will communicate any change in dress due to weather through your school email by noon on the 26th.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Mr. S.

Hey everyone! The electric parade is coming soon and we want the STCE Marching Band to the brightest lit! That’s right, the band can decorate themselves and their instruments with lights.

To make your life easier and support your effort to light it up you can order lights to be delivered to you at the uniform pick-up. The cost of the lights is $5.00.

To order, email Jennifer Westerhoff at jdwesterhoff@gmail.com and make your request. You can pay her when you pick up your lights.
