Week of July 23, 2017

Band Camp Week!

Our intensive band camp week begins tomorrow (Monday)! We have had some successful pre-camp rehearsals that have set us up for an excellent and productive week.


Rehearsal begins at 8am and ends at 5pm. Students should bring the following:

1. Sunscreen (we will have some on hand, but a personal bottle is best!)

2. Hat/headcovering

3. Sunglasses

4. Athletic shoes and a couple pairs of socks

5. Medical Form (if not already turned in). Extras available Monday morning. Or, download it from our handbook.

6. Lime Green shoe/folio form (handed out at pre-camp rehearsals). Extras available Monday morning.

7. $80 for marching fee (if not already paid). Fee goes up to $100 on Tuesday - pay early for the deal!

8. Excellent attitude!


Friday, students will need to bring/wear a pair of khaki/tan pants for our community performance. They can be shorts, pants, or capris. If your student needs help getting these clothes, please email Mrs. Rosselit ASAP. Our performance will be at 6pm on Friday, July 28th at Sylvester Football Field. Please come out and see the culmination of our week-long practice!
