We had a great first week of band camp! The students worked hard, learned a lot, and had the chance to meet new people and make new friends. Hopefully everyone was able to get some rest this weekend because we’re looking forward to starting the drill for our show this week!
Don’t forget that this week is Spirit Week at band camp! Every day has a theme, and we hope that everyone will participate and show their school spirit.
The Band Boosters are holding their Parent Volunteer Meeting on Tuesday night at 7:00pm in the band room. All parents who are interested in volunteering should attend.
Senior Banner Pictures will be taken on Wednesday starting at 8:00am. All orders are due by Tuesday.
Don’t forget that our rehearsal times change on Thursday since all teachers go back to school and have meetings during the day. Please refer to the schedule provided below for details.
