Getting Ready for Band Camp

Hey everyone! Marching season is fast approaching and we have been working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready to go. We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back, rolling up our sleeves, and getting down to business.

We will send out more details on the logistics of camp next week, but for now there are a few things you can do to start getting yourself prepared:
  1. Get your forms ready. Please bring your printed, filled out forms to turn in on the first morning of practice (we will not be offering an electronic form submission option this year) - you must have all required forms filled out and signed before you will be allowed to take the field, so please plan accordingly. Visit the Registration page to find the forms you need (Step 2). In addition, please complete Step 1 immediately if you haven't already done so. More information on paying your fees (Step 3) will be available next week.
  2. Make sure you know the schedule. The first day of practice begins at 8am on Monday, August 1 for all marching band members (the leadership team will meet the Friday before as well). Here's our August band camp schedule and our marching season practice and competition schedule. You can also subscribe to our band calendar if you want to integrate it with your own Google calendar. Please note, since the school is under construction this summer, some times and locations may change. We will keep you posted.
  3. Parents, think about how you can help. Especially during marching season, getting the band off and rolling successfully takes a village (about 15 hours per student). We have some immediate needs during band camp, so please sign up to help with the first week below. In addition, we are still looking for people to join Booster teams - take a look and see where you can pitch in.
