We had a great turnout at middle school pep band night!

Thanks to all who came, it was a awesome time!

middle school pep band night this Friday!

This Friday is middle school pep band night! While not required, it is an awesome experience for the younger students to be a part of the high school pep band!

Students should have at least Firework, Say Hey, Uptown Funk, and Happy from their lessons with Mr Gill. These will be the half time songs! The other pep band songs are located here

High school students will have all of the music and will share their music and help out the younger players! Don’t stress about knowing every single song perfectly, it is a fun, relaxed experience!

Hope to see you all there!

Here is a letter from Mr. Remy at the high school:


I hope that this finds you well! We are writing to invite all MDIRSS band students to join our high school pep band for ‘Middle School Pep Band Night’ on Friday, January 20th at Mount Desert Island High School! Interested students should arrive in the music room at 6pm, wearing green shirts. Students will play along for opening set, 1st and 2nd quarter and half-time. We estimate that half time will be over and students will be ready for pickup by 7:45pm. Please pickup students at the music room (parking lot nearest football field). If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me!

We are so PUMPED about this event and look forward to seeing you! Sincerely,

Michael Remy
