Dear Marching Band Family, We are off to a great start in camp! The winds, guard, and percussion are all working hard making great progress for the first week! We are super excited as we begin the early stages of putting our production together! Parents, please remember it is a process where we work to get ourselves in shape and develop both visually and musically. It takes time and patience. Please keep encouraging your children as we will daily. Quitting is not an option and leads to bad life habits. They ALL CAN do it!
Just a calendar reminder, we are fitting ALL new members for marching shoes tomorrow (Thurs. July 26). The shoe cost for new members is included in the new member fee, but we need to make sure every new student gets measured tomorrow.
For returning members who need new black marching shoes, please be sure to get measured tomorrow and have $35 in cash or check (made out to HCBB). We will ONLY order returning members new shoes if we receive $35 tomorrow.
We will also measure ALL guard members for jazz shoes.
Thanks to all for your commitment to the HC Band Program! It takes a village and we need every student, staff member, and parent on board to make this a great experience!
As always, please continue communicating and let me know how I can help.
Sincerely, Bill Kite Director of Bands Henry Clay High School
