Reminders and Info for this Friday!

Dear Band Family,

I hope everyone is well!  We have had a great camp and are looking forward to a strong finish over the next few days!  The visual and musical package is very demanding and the students have really pushed themselves.  The staff and I are thrilled with the progress and are excited to see them put this production together!

I wanted to pass along a few reminders and a couple of minor schedule changes due to HC announcing open house date/times in early September.

Upcoming Schedule Reminders

Friday, August 10th:

End of Camp potluck dinner in the cafeteria at 6 PM…I will release students from camp a few minutes early on Friday to prepare for dinner and the preview show.

The Raffle will be held at 6:30 PM in the cafeteria.

Following the potluck, we will host our annual Parent Preview Show in the lot (Students should have solid black shorts, HC band shirt…new members will receive their shirt soon, and tennis shoes/socks)
