Welcome to the Weekly Update! Now that our season is about to start, Mrs. Robinson will send out a “Weekly Update” on every Sunday from now until the end of the school year. These updates will include a brief outline of the week’s schedule, specific details to help prepare for the week’s events, and important upcoming dates to remember.
This week we have our Leadership Workshops and our Band Camp Kick-Off Meeting.
Here’s what you need to know for our upcoming events.
This Week’s Schedule:
Cut Time Accounts: If you have not yet accessed your Cut Time account, you should’ve received and invitation from Cut Time to create your username and password. Logging into Cut Time will allow you to see financial records towards band fees, make payments towards band fees, and update your contact information. Please contact Mrs. Robinson if you have any issues accessing your account.
Marching Pride Commitment Form (Past Due): There are still a few students who have not turned in their Commitment Forms. If we are missing your Commitment Form, you will be notified at the Kick-Off Meeting or during Band Camp. Majority of our students have turned in their commitment form. This was the form that was turned in with fees in May.
Marching Pride Band/Auxiliary Fee (Past Due): There are still a few students who have not finished paying off their fees. All remaining balances are due at the Kick-Off Meeting. Majority of our students have finished paying off their fees. Balances can be viewed in your Cut Time account.
Physical Exam Requirement: All students are required to complete a physical exam prior to Band Camp. We will accept the physical form from any healthcare provider, the CCPS Marching Band Physical Form, or the FHSAA Physical Form. VERY IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE IN SPORTS: If your student plans on participating in a sport at PRHS, please use the FHSAA Physical Form.
Required Band Forms: In addition to the physical, there are several other required forms due at the Kick-Off Meeting. These required band forms can all be found on the band website under “Students” --> “Band Camp 2022.”
Instrument Repair & Equipment: If you have not already done so, now is a great time to pick up your instrument and start practicing! Our trusted local vendors are Cadence Music and Christman Music. If needed, please be sure to get your instrument fixed and have all your needed supplies before band camp.
School Owned Instruments: Students who are using school owned instruments will receive these on the first day of band camp. We only provide the following school owned instruments for marching band: tenor sax, French horn/mellophone, baritone, tuba/sousaphone, and percussion.
Marching Pride Sponsors: We are reaching out to local businesses and contributors to the arts to help fund our program. Every gift matters and helps to provide our students with life-changing experiences. If you or a business you know of is interested in donating to the Marching Pride, please contact our Band Booster President Mr. Anthony Rowtie at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Robinson at email@example.com.
