The Band Stand:
The Band Boosters runs its own concession stand, known as the Band Stand on the visitor side at all home games. We ask that one parent of each student sign up for one shift in the Band Stand at our home football games. As a chaperone or concession volunteer, you pay no admission to the game. We need workers for the concession stand for each home game.

We have numerous students that participate in marching band as well as are enrolled in the IB program and/or other activities such as NJROTC, sports, etc. It IS possible to participate in both/all. Please let us know if you would like to speak to a student that participates in marching as well as IB, NJROTC, etc and we can put you in touch!
