Band Camp is quickly approaching and we need parent help to make camp safe and successful. Currently we have openings for volunteers to serve as overnight Cabin Chaperons and Sunday Set Up help. Here is a document outlining the expectations of Cabin Chaperons and Sunday Set Up. To sign up, please visit the SignUp Genius Link below.
rSchool Today and Physical Forms
All students participating in sports and activities at St. Charles West must register with our activities portal called rSchool Today. This is the portal our activities department uses to organize student data such as emergency contact information, medical insurance information, student athlete medical records and updated student physical information. Marching Band students are considered Student Athletes and must register and have an up to date physical completed. Physicals are good for 2 years. You only have to register once for all sports and activities you plan to participate in this coming school year. Below is the link to rSchool Today as well as a parent guide document and the official MSHSAA Physical Form. This information is also available at www.scwestband.org Parents, please have your students registration completed by July 31st.
