Camp Starts Tomorrow

Dear Parents & Students,
Just some quick reminders about band camp starting tomorrow:

  • Students should bring a sack lunch each day.  We will take a lunch break from 11-12.
  • We will begin at 7am each day on the band practice pad (located next to the baseball field)
  • After August 1st, students are required to have a physical on file.  If they do not have a physical on file, they are still responsible for attending all rehearsals but will have to sit out when we are working on marching.  I have attached the physical form we are required to use if you still need to take care of this.
  • Required equipment EACH day for band:
    • Athletic Shoes
    • Cool, lightweight clothing (no long pants)
    • Sunscreen
    • Camelbak (these will be distributed to new members at the beginning of our 1st rehearsal)
    • Pencil (inside rehearsals only… at first)
  • Recommended equipment for outside rehearsals:
    • Hat
    • Sunglasses
  • Students will be required to bring a flip folder with all their music to every rehearsal (indoors and out) beginning Friday, August 2nd.  Students are responsible for attaching a string to their folder so that it can hang from their shoulder, as well as attaching a pencil to that string.  Flip folders may be purchased before or after rehearsals from a member of our Student Leadership Team setup in the main hallway outside the band hall.  Folders are $5, and extra pages are $0.50 each.  10 extra pages is a good place to start, bringing the total to $10.

We can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow!  It’s going to be a fantastic season!
