We are looking forward to welcoming our 8th grade instrumental music families to the high school next year! We will be holding an informational night for you and your student on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the EAHS Instrumental Music Room. Enter through the main entrance of the high school. This meeting is for all 8th grade instrumental music students, including instrumentalists and color guard students.
The purpose of the meeting is to familiarize yourself with our high school music program. You will receive information regarding dates for next year, hear from current high school instrumental music students, discuss scheduling, learn about upcoming 8th grade evaluations, and opportunities for the 2020 – 2021 school year. More information is available on the 8th grade instrumental music flyer, which includes quotes from current high school students and pictures from this past year.

Due to weather, Meet the Band Night has been reschedule to Thursday, August 22 outside the instrumental music room at Easton Area High School.
IMA is providing a free dinner for family and friends. This night serves as a preview performance to showcase what our marching band students have been working on throughout band camp.
Volunteers and donations needed
Obviously, feeding 300 students and their families is no small undertaking, but we’re very excited to host everyone and showcase our hard-working students. We still are in need of volunteers to help prepare, grill, and serve the food, as well as donations for specific items.
