Once the letter has been earned (15 points), each additional 5 points earned will generate a chevron to be worn on the left sleeve of the letter jacket.

Letters will be issued at the end of the Marching Band season and at the Spring Band Festival. Letter winners will be acknowledged in the Spring Band Festival programs.

Students are responsible for the purchase of letter jackets, patches, etc. Students will be given their band letter and chevrons free of charge. Students will continue to receive band ribbons, and these are to be worn opposite the letter on the varsity jacket.
