Freshman Orientation will be Wed. August 7th for new marching band members

Dear Band Family,

I hope all are well! The kids are off to another great start to week 2 in camp and are making great progress with their training!
I wanted to pass along some information for our 9th-grade members as soon as possible. The good folks at Henry Clay just confirmed that they would like all new 9th-grade marching band members to attend Freshman Orientation next Wednesday, August 7th in the morning. Our 9th-grade students should attend orientation next Wed. morning and then eat lunch at 12 and be back with us for the afternoon session from 1:00 PM until 6:00 PM. This will allow all of our new students to attend that day together regardless of what date is listed on the letter sent home. This will be important as our 9th-grade students will only miss one morning of camp instead of two while we will be learning drill to prepare for our end of camp Parent Preview Show on Fri. evening August 9th.
Thanks to all parents who attended the emergency meeting yesterday! Thank you for your patience in finding a space to meet as we are still preparing the building for the start of school. I would encourage all parents to attend the first official band parent meeting on Monday, August 19th at 7:00 PM in the band room. We have many exciting opportunities planned for the year and need as much parent involvement as possible to make the program operate! I look forward to working with each of you this year. It has been a joy already working with your children!
Thanks to all for your effort and support!
