Yesterday’s Kick-Off Meeting was a huge success! Hopefully, we were able to provide all of you with the information you needed to feel prepared for this week. It’s hard to believe that band camp starts tomorrow!
We’d like to thank our student officers, Band Booster Board, and all parent volunteers who helped run the Kick-Off Meeting. We were especially impressed with our officers who finished their 2 days of training yesterday. So far, this year is off to a great start, and we can’t wait for tomorrow!
Here’s what you need to know for our upcoming events.
This Week’s Schedule:
Student Drop-off, Pick-up, and Student Parking: Just a reminder, student drop-off and pick-up is by the flagpole at the main entrance. All students who drive, will park in the Student Parking Lot. Please do not park, drop-off, or pick-up in the Faculty Parking Lot. Thank you for your cooperation.
Band Camp Essentials: In addition to a bagged lunch, all students need to be prepared with the following items for band camp:
o A ½ gallon jug full of water
o Instrument/Auxiliary Equipment
o 1-inch binder with plastic sheet protectors
o A pencil
o Snacks for short breaks (pretzels, fruit, granola, etc.)
o Gym shoes & socks
VERY IMPORTANT Required Band Forms (Past Due): Several individuals only turned in a physical at yesterday’s Kick-Off Meeting. There are 4-5 required forms in addition to the physical. These required forms can be found on the band website. Here is the direct link: https://www.prhsbands.org/band-camp-2022.html. Please turn in your required forms to the Band Boosters when you arrive for band camp. The Band Boosters will in the Band Office. It is very important that all required forms are turned in prior to Band Camp. The hard deadline for these required forms is FRIDAY, JULY 29TH. After this deadline, students who are still missing forms will NOT be allowed to attend any rehearsals or performances until all required forms have been received. Please inform Mrs. Robinson if your student is scheduled to have their physical after July 29th.
Make-up Kick-Off Meeting (Mon. 7/25): We are holding a make-up meeting on Monday, July 25th at 5:00pm in the band room. Please plan on attending if you were not at yesterday’s meeting. In addition to giving information for band camp, students and parents ordered shoes, meals, and other items at the Kick-Off Meeting. Some of these orders are time sensitive.
Poppin’ Popcorn Fundraiser (Due Sat. 8/13): The Band Boosters have started their first fundraiser of the year, Poppin’ Popcorn. This fundraiser is 100% online. Instructions on how to get started are attached to this email. We are asking that all students aim to sell at least 3 items. The fundraiser will end on Saturday, August 13th. If you have any questions concerning our fundraisers, please contact Band Booster Vice President, Mrs. Sandra Llorca at Sandra.email@example.com.
Donations: We are asking all families to provide at least one of the following items as a donation. These are all items that are used by our students throughout the school year. Donations will be collected in the Band Office throughout Band Camp. Thank you to those who have already donated items!
Instrument Repair & Equipment: Our trusted local vendors are Cadence Music and Christman Music. Both vendors can drop off orders at PRHS.
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.
