2021 FVHS Marching Band Registration Introduction (pg. 1)
Thank you for choosing to become a Marching Bengal! The Marching Bengals have been one of the most visible, active and accomplished groups at Fuquay-Varina High School for more than 40 years. The Marching Bengals provide each of its members with unique opportunity to join other hardworking young people in pursuit of excellence in performance and positive character development.

Marching Band at FVHS is a co-curricular activity. Students must be enrolled in either Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble to participate in the Marching Bengals unless they are in Color Guard. Color Guard members are not required to be in a band class, though they may choose to do so if they have been in middle/high school band classes.

Complete and submit this form to begin your child's registration for the 2021 Fuquay-Varina High School Marching Bengals. Parents, your child's registration for marching band is not complete until you complete steps 1-3. Your child is NOT in marching band until all 3 steps are done.

Step 1: Mr. Edwards has confirmed that your child is enrolled in band class (except for color guard members who do not play an instrument)

Step 2: You complete this online registration form.

Step 3: The BBFV Treasurer has received your first assessment payment.

You may pay more than the first payment amount if you like. The payment amount is based on your child's experience level in marching band. There is a different cost for new members versus veteran members. In addition, siblings and students on scholarship have different assessment rates. Page 3 has more information about the specific assessment amounts.

This year's marching band registration is taking place during a period of uncertainty, but also in a period of optimism as our community and nation grapples with COVID-19. We know that families may be affected by the economic disruptions caused by COVID-19. Don't let financial limitations be the reason you don't sign up your child for marching band!

Contact Mr. Edwards at mfedwards@wcpss.net or Band Booster Treasurer Jeff Hovey @ jeffreyhovey@hotmail.com if you have concerns about the cost of marching band. We offer scholarship opportunities to families in need. We offer fundraising opportunities, although our normal fundraising schedule has already been changed by COVID-19-related closures in our state. There are additional options we can consider. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns at all about the financial piece of marching band.

Later this spring I will email you a few forms required by WCPSS. You will enter your email address(es) later in this form. Please be sure the address(es) are accurate so that I can get these forms to you. Your child cannot participate in band camp or other marching band activities unless I have these forms completed with your signature.

I will list dates for band camp and rehearsals before the start of the school year. Please save these dates on your family calendar. We are moving forward with plans for a full rehearsal and performance schedule though there is still uncertainty about exactly what the summer and fall will look like.

Plan about 20-30 minutes to complete the entire registration. The goal is that when you hit "submit" at the end of the form, your child's online registration is 100% complete. Please complete the registration in one sitting. The process is rather lengthy but if done correctly I won't need to come back to you later for other information.

You CANNOT edit this form after you submit it. I understand that having to complete all this a second time to fix a typo in an email address or phone number would be a big hassle. Take great care to read questions thoroughly and enter all information accurately the first time.
