    Norton Competition 10/10 -
    Information for the Norton Competition has been posted here! 
    Congrats! -
    Cheers for the Amherst Marching Comets as they Placed second in their division (and overall) at the University of Akron Band Competition.  The Marching Comets then went on to be awarded GRAND CHAMPION at the Revere High School show later that evening.  Our next competition is at Norton High School on October 10th.  Details should come out sometime this week. 
    Senior Recognition Night -
    This is an invitation for Senior Recognition Night with the Amherst Marching Comets on FRIDAY, October 23rd.  We will honor the seniors of our Marching Comets on the football field during PREGAME of the Amherst vs. Westlake Football game.  Please download the invitation with RSVP information to be turned in ASAP.  You can get the invitation by clicking here. 
    Competition Information -
    We don't normally get information for competitions sooner than 2 weeks before the show.  This is because of deadlines with OMEA and show sponsors waiting until the last minute to add or delete a performing ensemble.  If you are interested in knowing ahead of time, please refer to last year's competition PDFs to get a "feel" for what the day will be like.  We will always get information out to you as we get information in from the show sponsor.  We ask students to keep the entire day open so that there are no conflicts with competitions. 
    Downloads and Facebook -
    We are posting a lot of information on our facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/amherstmarchingcomets  We have also posted many drill charts and other important documents in the band camp PDF page.  Always check both areas for needed information.

    A note for all parents wanting to Chaperone for the Amherst Program

    There is a new online application process for Chaperoning for the Amherst Schools.  We will require all 2015 chaperones to fill out an application online even if you have had one from the past.  Having it done online will make it accessible to all administration, will be easier to track expiration dates, and will eliminate the need for hand to hand passing along with photocopying extras.    At this time, you WILL NOT need a background check unless it is an overnight stay.    This is for all chaperones traveling on the buses for games and competitions.  You can find the page by clicking on the link below.  If you are a full time volunteer coach of the band, you may also click below to find your online application

    You may find the application here.
