Since my earlier post, several parents came up with good questions that I would like to share with everyone.

Camp location – High School Band Room and Marching Band Field.   Both the Band Room and Rehearsal Field are next to each other so the students will be in one place.

Dates – Camp is for all High School Band Students on both days.  Only the uniform fitting is scheduled for a particular day according to the students class.

What to Bring – Instrument, Water Bottle and Sunblock.

Reminder – Marching Season Begins tomorrow!

Conflicts – Several parents have emailed me about conflicts with athletic practices this week and next.   We have a plan in place for many of them but we still need communication between the band directors and the coach.  I would like to work on a compromise plan where we split time.  If you could include the coach in your requests that can help as well.  Most coaches have been very flexible with their time, and I would like to do the same.

 

Pre-Camp (All Members) August 15 and 16 9am-11am

Leadership Meeting (Leadership Team Only) August 15 and 16 11am-12pm

Band Camp (All Members) August 21 – August 24

 

Uniform Fittings

August 15 Grade 9-10 12pm-3pm and 6pm to 9pm

August 16 Grades 11-12 12pm-3pm

 

(We do ask that you try to follow the times for each grade.  If a time does not work for your grade level, please come to one of the other fittings)

 

Uniform Help

Under the band booster section of the webpage we have a Sign Up Genius started to get parents involved in helping fit the uniforms.  We have 140 kids to fit so the more volunteers we have the more efficient we can be!

 

Mrs Borst and I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
