Any shirt designs (show AND sections) must be submitted to Mr. Knight by Thursday, July 20. Submitting a design is optional, but many students like to submit ideas. We will vote on a show design at Band Camp. While every student will receive a complimentary show shirt in August to wear at competitions, some sections like to create their own section shirts to wear at school and other approved events. These section shirts are 100% optional, but many students & parents like to buy them. They usually cost between $10-13.

Section leaders and upperclassmen should discuss a design with their section. Mr. Knight wants ONE design per section by Thursday, July 20 if sections want section shirts. Please keep designs to 1 color front/back if you want individual names on the back. Non-personalized shirts can be up to 2 colors front/1 color back. This will keep costs down and streamline prices for everyone. NO STUDENT SHOULD COLLECT MONEY OR PLACE ANY ORDERS. We want to streamline the merchandise process and ensure proper handing of money through the NPPA.

Keep your eyes peeled for a merchandise order form coming in late July! This will be your opportunity to buy your section's shirt, NPPA polos, and any other merchandise for students, family, and fans!
