Show Shirt Required Information and Additional Orders


Every student needs to fill out the required information at the top of this form.  You will input your size here for your band shirt that will be worn under the band uniform at every performance, as well as other dates throughout the year, and is included with the price of your student's Fair Share payment.  All students in Marching Band should complete this form, including members of the Color Guard and Dance Team.

Additionally, you may choose to order a spare shirt or shirts for other members of your family.  There is a picture showing your options and the shirts can be ordered below.  Checks for these shirts should be written out to HBA and sent to practice for Mr. Himmler or mailed to Trisha Webb at 2536 Wickline Road, Gibsonia, PA 15044.
