Band Camp Wrap Up

What a successful week!


Opener: On the field with music!

Habanera: On the field with music!

Closer: Drill on the field, music is rockin'!


I am so proud of the hard work these kids put into the week. The music this year is not easy; the drill is not easy. However, this band took these challenges and pushed through to create a great show for our parents and community last Friday.


THANK YOU to all the parents that donated time, food, and supplies for our band members this week. We could not have had such a successful camp without your support!


Our next rehearsal is Tuesday, August 1st from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the high school. This is a mandatory rehearsal, so please plan accordingly! We can only improve our show if we have our students there! If you/your student have to be gone/late, you MUST email Mrs. R @ krosselit@homeoftheshamrocks.org. Please consult the marching band handbook regarding excused/unexcused absences.


We have a mandatory rehearsal EVERY Tuesday from 6:30pm-8:30pm through October. Please set aside these evenings for band. The only week we will not rehearse is Fair Week (August 15th). Head's up: we will rehearse the first day of school - Tuesday, September 5th.

OPEN BAND ROOM TUESDAY 4:30pm-6:30pm - Get your sectionals in! It's important!
