Uniform Details for Parents and Students

What uniform parts does my student need to provide for each performance? 
Items your student is responsible for bringing to and wearing in each show include: shako or beret if they need one; a Walton band, black dri-fit shirt; athletic shorts to be worn under their bibbers; plain black crew or knee-high socks; marching shoes; gloves if needed; wristbands if needed; hair supplies such as gel, bobby pins, etc. (note that all exposed nail polish and jewelry must be removed).

Everything students are bringing with them should be placed in a garment bag (Walton Band bags are available for purchase, but any standard garment bag will work) that is clearly labeled with their name and section. Garment bags should be delivered to the band room on your student’s way into school if they are not going home between school and a show.

Want a complete check list of what they need? 
Please click here for a checklist that can be used as your student gets ready for a show.

Wondering what a shako, gauntlet, or plume is?
Please click here for a Walton Band from A to Z list that explains these terms as well as many others you will hear through the marching season.

Help needed!
It takes many hands to ensure that our students and their uniforms will look their best for each performance. The uniform crew asks for volunteers to help get students into the proper uniform before each show and for help getting all the school-owned uniform pieces back in order after each show. Several times throughout the season we also need help washing the uniforms. This volunteer slot can be done at home around your schedule. Please visit our volunteer signup page to see a list of all current band volunteer needs.

Indianapolis Trip 2017

Here’s all of your information concerning the band’s trip to Bands of America Grand Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 8-12. All students are strongly encouraged to attend as this trip involves a competition, and it is very difficult for the marching band to put on its best show if students are missing.


Each form distributed in the trip commitment packet needs to be reviewed and completed per instructions on the form. If you misplace a form there’s a list of downloadable forms at the bottom of this page.


If you wish to pay by check simply follow instructions on the Trip Commitment Form.
