Our Kick-Off Meeting is about 3 weeks away and Band Camp will be here before you know it! Here’s some information to help you prepare for band camp:
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.
Band Calendar Access on Safari: If you are an iPhone user, you may have issues viewing the band calendar on the band website when using Safari. The issue seems to only appear when using Safari on a phone. We are trying to fix the issue, but until then, please use Google Chrome and/or sync the band calendar with your phone. Instructions are attached to this email.
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. Here is the direct link: https://www.prhsbands.org/band-camp-2022.html
Music: We will provide all students with hard copies of the music when they arrive at camp—but we will post the show music on the band website at a later date for any students who would like to get a head start on practicing.
Instrument Repair & Equipment: If you have not already done so, now is a great time to look for your band instrument! 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.
