I hope everyone is having a relaxing and enjoyable summer! Plans for the upcoming school year are underway and I am very excited. Below are a few announcements so that everyone will be up to date.
If your name appears on the list that was emailed July 9 and you are NOT planning on marching this fall, let me know immediately!
Please fill out the emergency form on the band website (click here). You also need to bring a copy of your health insurance card and the field trip release with you to band camp. If your insurance has NOT changed since last summer, you do not need to send another copy of your card. All 3 of these items are due Wednesday, July 30th.
For band camp, each family should bring 1 case of water. Bring this with you Wednesday, July 30th.
6. Camp Schedule Reminder
Below is the schedule I sent via email on March 30. The only changes since then are the date of Picture Day and the times for Drumline camp.
Thurs., July 24 - 9:00-3:00 BandCouncil Only
Fri., July 25 - 12:00-3:00 Band Council Only
Wed., July 30 through Fri., Aug. 1 - 8:00-5:30 FULLBAND
During school, Wednesdays are still sacred band days. Exhaust every resource to be at school and after-school practices, especially on Wednesdays. We will continue to have after-school practices on Wednesdays and Thursdays until 5:00. If you have to make doctor appointments, etc. during school hours please schedule those for Tuesdays.
7. Sports Program Packets
Please remember to turn in your packet to Janet Lewis, Susan Acker, or the school office. Monday was the deadline. This is the extent of my knowledge on the subject. Please do not turn in anything to me for the sports program or pictures.
Just a reminder that we will finish painting the band room tomorrow (Thursday) at 3:00. It's looking great! Come earlier if you'd like -- I will be there after lunch. If you don't want to paint, I have a rack full of uniforms that still needs checking in and a stack of music that needs copying. Something for everyone! :)
Remember to practice your instrument! Halftime music and recordings are being posted to Members Only as I finish working on them. Password is still the same.
