New Prairie Bands
Welcome to the homepage of the New Prairie Bands! This website will serve as a means of communication between the band department, parents, students and visitors. Please use the links above to access information as needed.
Congratulations to 4 of our students for being selected to the prestigious IMEA All-State Honor band that will perform under the direction of Col. Michael Colburn, former Marine Band director/current Butler University Director of Bands -- Moriah Carmel (Trumpet), Taylor Chlebowski (Baritone Sax), Jordan Piscitelli (Alternate Trumpet) and Amber Yussum (Clarinet)!!

Congrats on a great season Marching Cougars! Scholastic State Finalist -- a first in NPBands history!
Please use the absence form (provided in a link below) to help communicate to Mr. Teykl any time a student needs to miss an after-school rehearsal or performance for any reason. I appreciate having at least 2 weeks notice for all of these conflicts. A parent e-mail directly to Mr. Teykl, with all of the information required on the form, also works to excuse your son/daughter as well. Thank you for your help and communication with this!
