High School and 8th Grade Band Parents,

At the band banquet we discussed date possibilities for next school year.  With the possibility of an earlier start to the school year next year we know that the week we have normally have band camp will no longer work.  I want to thank all the parents who either filled out the written survey did the online survey.  The results were 87% in favor of July 30-August 3 and 13% for July 23-July 27.  Band camp will be July 30th-August 3 at Coopersville High School.   If those date propose a conflict for you child, please get it touch with us in the spring and we’ll make a plan to accommodate.
