Newbie Parent Information - Helpful tips

Welcome Newbie Parents!

We would like to welcome all new parents and students to the Mater Dei Band family. Whether you are transitioning from a middle school band program or transferring into Mater Dei from elsewhere, entering the Mater Dei High School band program can be intimidating and overwhelming. Our goal is to assist you in this transition process with all the dynamic moving parts as the school year progresses.

Please take a minute and read through the helpful tips and FAQs. We would love to see you at our monthly booster meetings, every second Tuesday of each month.
