STEELE KNIGHT BAND
Welcome to the Steele Band website. It is the goal of the directors for this website to be another way for students, parents, community, and supporters of the Knight Band to receive information regarding the Steele band program. Within this website, you will find current and future events. In addition, you will find links to other music sites that may help you to find new ways to foster stronger musical appreciation at home and in our community.
The best way to reach a director is through email:
Mr. Deater - firstname.lastname@example.org (Director of Bands)
Ms. Beasley - email@example.com (Assistant Director of Bands/Director of Jazz Studies)
Mr. Hisatake - firstname.lastname@example.org (Assistant Director of Bands/Director of Percussion)
Ms. Guerra - email@example.com (Guard Sponsor)

Marching Band Shoes
All Wind and Percussion students (everyone except Colorguard) are required to have a specific shoe for the marching band uniform. The shoe we use is called the Super Drillmaster (black) and is a specially designed shoe for the purpose of the marching band activity. While there are other shoes on the market, this is the shoe we use so that all students are uniformly outfitted. Parents and students may also notice there is a shoe called the Drillmaster. This is NOT the correct shoe. Please only purchase the Super Drillmaster in black. We have experienced that the Super Drillmaster lasts longer while having an upgraded design to the heel to assist in marching. Since the need for this shoe varies from person-to-person and year-to-year, it is the student's responsibility to purchase this shoe on their own as the need arises (foot growth, wear and tear, losing the shoe, etc.). Parents may purchase the shoe anywhere they are able to find this specific shoe; however, as a convenience, I am listing some websites to assist parents and students in finding the shoe. You will most likely not find this shoe anywhere locally, so please plan ahead when making the decision to order. When shopping, please research the cost of shipping, as this varies for each business.
The Band Room
The BAND App (Announcements & Events)
We use the Band App to send quick notifications to our members and parents. We need all students/parents to join the band app so you can receive information. Please follow the directions below to join.
1) click the following invitation/link:
2) follow the instructions to sign up
3) You're in!!!
One of the biggest differences with the Band App, is the opportunity for two-way communication. However, you will be receiving notifications from everyone's response unless you do the following:
1) In the app, click the 3 horizontal lines on the bottom right of your screen
2) Click "Notifications"
3) Click on "Comments"
4) Select "Tagged Comments Only"
By following these instructions, you will still receive the reminders, but will not get additional notifications for comments from the entire band.
Please download the "Band App" today and get set up so you can continue to receive reminders and information. The drum majors will no longer be sending anything through Remind.
