The Band Walk-through registration is required for all Band students in order to participate in the Marching Band Program.  Just like previous years, we have several different times for you to register your student.  You pick the date and time that is the most convenient for you.   It only takes a few minutes and gives the parents involved an opportunity to meet each of you.

Embroidered Travel Jacket for Band and Color Guard

For those in the band and color guard, we will be requesting an additional donation for a Travel Jacket:

Travel Jacket: $40

  • The jacket will have your student’s name embroidered on it and is similar to the ones used last year at the Midwest Clinic.
  • The jackets are part of the travel uniform and are intended to help with visual blocking of the show during practices.
  • These jackets are intended for use by students throughout their years with the band at every away event.
  • This is a one-time additional requested donation. 

Questions At Walkthrough

The AFM Treasurer will be available at walk-through registration to answer any questions you may have regarding the requested donations.

AVHS Walk-through Registration

The AVHS Walk-through registration is for all AHVS students (not just band students), and is required by the High School/District.  Because band students will be in Band Camp during the registration times, the AVHS Registration should be performed by a parent when convenient for them and without their Band student.  The following link will provide the information Parents will need to prepare for the AVHS Walk-through:

IMPORTANT:  Because your student will not be with you, please obtain your student’s signature on the “registration signature page” prior to attending.  Also, be sure to talk with your student about available purchases such as the yearbook, the ASB card, class T-shirts, parking passes, etc.

Student Picture Taking and ID Cards

Since Band students will not be attending the AVHS Walk-through registration with their parents, a special time has been arranged for Band students to have their pictures taken and ID cards created.

Grades 9 and 10: Friday 8/22, 8am
Grades 11 and 12: Friday 8/22, 9am

  • Students should bring their completed photo order form and their receipt for ASB (if purchased) to the small gym.
  • The photos will be taken in the wrestling area, a separate room off the Small gym (behind Amador Theater.)  Students will enter through the side facing the Main office, step up stairs (not the entrance using the ramp). 
  • Make up pictures will be taken on 10/1/14.

NOTE:  If you feel strongly that your student should attend the AVHS Walk-through with you, please plan on doing so after Band rehearsal on Monday (8/18) or Tuesday (8/19) so that your student does not miss important rehearsal time.
