Have you considered purchasing a Letter Jacket for your band student? This is the best way to display the band patches collected during your student's years with the FC band. At the end of each school year, your student will receive a chevron and other patches indicating involvement in Marching Band, Jazz, Pep, Indoor Percussion, Wind Ensemble and a few others. You'll also have the opportunity to purchase show patches and BOA Competition patches throughout the year. Find out more about Letter Jackets at the bottom of the Marching Band page.
