The MIB team works because of the supportive parents who make it happen.

Most Common Missing Items/Mistakes in Registration Paperwork

  • Missing copy of insurance card- front and back
  • Not circling t-shirt size for show shirt on the Uniform Agreement
  • Do you want your student to ride on the bus? Then check the “District Bus” box AND the Commercial Charter box on the Parent Permission form.  (Jazz Band, Color Guard and Winter Drumline Students should also check the box “Private Auto Driven by Parent”.)

If you have any questions about registration, please contact me, Elaine Cheng, at vpres@eldoradoband.com.
