The Saucon Valley High School Marching Band is an extracurricular activity for student musicians as well as Majorettes and Color Guard.  Students launch the marching season with a 2 week intensive band camp in August.  Once the school year begins, practices are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  They perform at all varsity football games, the Homecoming Pep Rally/Bon Fire, community events and several parades.  The Marching Band competes in several competitions with US Bands.   The Marching season begins in August and concludes at the the end of the football season.

Attendance Policy Reminder

Attendance is mandatory at ALL practices and performances. The only exceptions that will be made are ones submitted in writing in advance to the Band Director.

Acceptable excuses for missing a rehearsal or performance are as follows:

  • Death in the Family
  • The Wedding of a Family Member
  • Illness
  • Religious Obligations

Unacceptable Excuses are as follows:

  • Professional Sporting Events i.e. attending a Phillies game
  • Concerts
  • Family Vacations/outings – without previous discussion/notification
  • Social Events i.e. Shopping, parties, etc.

If a student wishes to leave an event such as a competition early, a note must be provided in advance in order for that student to be released. 

HYDRATION: This has been a HUGE issue.  Please drink enough fluids during the day to avoid heat related issues during rehearsals and performances.  This is critical during the warmer days that we have been experiencing.  Drink enough fluids at home, before school and during lunch. If you bring a parent note to the nurse, you may also drink water during the school day. Mr. Payung highly recommends this!
