Band Camp is Here!

Band camp is upon us!  August 10-14 from 7:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. every day!  Here are some things to keep in mind:
  • Wear comfortable clothing (same as for summer band).
  • Bring a water bottle.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Wear sturdy shoes.
  • Get plenty of sleep!
  • Eat a good breakfast every day.
  • Get a small (3 x 5) notebook for taking notes.
  • Get some kind of  folder for music and set sheets.  You can find and print your music under the 2015 Fall Marching Music tab on this blog.
  • The band boosters will provide dinner every night, but lunch only Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Be prepared to bring a lunch on Tuesday and Thursday or have money to buy something off campus.
  • The band boosters will be taking shoe orders on Tuesday of band camp.  Please check your marching shoes and decide if you need new ones.
It's going to be a great week!  Good luck Marching Grizzlies!

Still Looking for Volunteers!

Fall marching season is rapidly approaching.  There are still opportunities for parents to sign up for our committees and to bring food for band camp.  If you have not signed up for one of our committees especially, please take the time to do so now.  All volunteering opportunities can be found on the band blog under the "Volunteers" tab.  Make sure to mark which dates you are available to help.  As an added bonus, all parents who sign up to help on the equipment committee will receive free admission to the competition they sign up for.  Otherwise, you pay $5 admission.
