May 29/30- Varsity band marching rehearsal, 4-8PM in the stadium. Bring instruments, but we will not be playing. Remember to wear marching shoes and a gallon water container. Boosters will provide a light dinner.
Please view/print the 2019 summer/fall band calendar. As lettering requirements will be altered somewhat, please email me with any issues attending band camp, especially the 7 days of varsity camp (or varsity drumline camp, if applicable). There will be a greater weight given to marching band camp than in the past. As a father of three, I completely understand the importance of family vacations. Having said that, we typically learn a significant portion of the show during band camp. If we don’t have 98%+ of the band, it takes valuable rehearsal time to get caught up.
We are also collecting dietary restriction needs for next year. Please email me if we need to be aware of anything regarding feeding your child at marching band functions.
Drumline members, please check for an email regarding summer drumline sectionals in the next few days. These are not required, but are highly recommended to get the year off to a great start. It’s especially helpful for incoming freshmen to learn the ropes and start memorizing warm ups before band camp starts. Sectionals are in the North band room, from 5:30-7:00 PM, and are on the following days: June 19, June 26, July 10, July 17.
As we are moving away from CharmsOffice and more to Skyward based communication, it’s possible we may not have access to email over the summer. So we will use a new Remind code for communication over the summer. Please sign up for the following classes:
Text any of the codes to 81010
