We had a great first week of band camp! The students learned how to march, they learned new music/choreography, and they learned a good chunk of field drill for their show! The students also had the opportunity to meet new people and do some team bonding activities. Every morning we started the day with a 15–20-minute workout. On Thursday, Ms. Sieja led us through a Zumba class, which was challenging but a lot of fun!
Please be reminded that the times for band camp vary this week. Please refer to the schedule provided below.
Please don’t forget that all band camp forms are now past due. Students will not be allowed to attend band camp without turning in their emergency form, student travel authorization, consent and liability, and media release form. Physicals are also past due and should be submitted ASAP. Please be sure to turn in your medication authorization form if your student requires medication while attending band camp. More information is provided below.
This week is Spirit Week for the Marching Pride! Themes are listed below. All students are encouraged to participate, but please remember that all attire needs to school appropriate, and attire cannot impede the student’s ability to play their instrument, perform their choreo, or march their drill. If you have any questions related to Spirit Week, please contact your Section Leader, Captain, or Drum Major.
Here’s what you need to know for our upcoming events.
