Uniform: CKMS BAND POLO SHIRT, students can wear whatever they want on the bottom but it must be appropriate. No short shorts, rips or inappropriate words/symbols. If their polo shirt no longer fits, please bring their old one and exchange for a new one.
Large Instrument Players: Please bring their home instrument. They can use either their home instrument or in-school one, but they will be cleaning instruments during the following week so we want them to have it here on campus already.
