Uniform fitting

Uniform fitting for sophomores, juniors and seniors who do not have the required marching uniform will be held in the band hallway Aug. 5-8 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The required marching shoes, which cost $35, also will be sized, so bring socks; payment for the shoes will be collected when the shoes are distributed in September. There are a few used shoes available for $10 (paid immediately), first come, first served. Please make every effort to get your uniform during these times, as there will be limited fitting times available once the school year begins; plus, the earlier you get your uniform, the greater the size selection.  In September, freshmen will pay for the MHS band t-shirt, which serves as part of their marching uniform and as the pep band uniform.

Concert and Old Abe bands must have marching uniforms for the Sept 13 football game. Freshman and Eagle bands need their marching uniforms for the Homecoming parade on Sept. 27.

Uniform care

The marching uniforms are only two years old, and each one costs more than $500. Students and parents, please work together to protect our investment by taking proper care of the uniform:

  • Please make sure to wear uniform with the sleeves and pants hemlines at lengths appropriate for you. The sleeves accordion snap so the white hem still shows, and the pants legs fold up and snap. You may simply tack with a couple stitches or lightly steam the pants hem on a cool setting to keep hem in place. Stepping on the hem will ruin the pants for future students and may result in a fine for the student who damaged the uniform.
  • After wearing, allow uniform to dry in a well-ventilated area. Please do NOT leave the uniform in a car or garage!
  • Once dry, hang uniform neatly in a clean, dry area in the provided garment bag.
  • If the uniform gets dirty before the student is done with band, professionally dry clean it (at your expense) at Gilbertson’s Cleaners & Tailors, 2128 Sherwin Ave.
  • Hats should be stored in the provided hat box. Return plumes to the plume carrier after each use.
