After a Highly Successful Band Camp… What’s Next?

FullSizeRender_1What a tremendous past two weeks of camp! Extremely proud of our students, staff, and parents. Thank you to our parents who volunteered with providing waters, keeping our facilities tidy, providing food for staff, helping students with breakfast and lunch, and your moral support of your children! We couldn’t have been as successful without you. Thank you to our staff who taught our students both weeks, we have had a great start and I look forward to continue to build on what we have accomplished throughout the season. You guys are rock stars and I appreciate your dedication to our students!  Thank you to our students who pushed themselves during these extremely hot weeks. The preview performance that you provided on Friday night was fantastic! The skits were entertaining and the show was impressive! What an exciting start to our season!

Students: Please continue to hydrate daily. Although our practices will be shorter than they were these past few weeks, if you are not hydrated they could be tough. By being hydrated you will remain cool and be able to perform with optimal energy. We only have a few rehearsals left before our first football game. Let’s make the most of them as we prepare for exciting performances!

Please continue to check the website often and refer to the calendar as we have a busy season ahead. We will remind you often of what is upcoming, but it is everyone’s responsibility to make sure that you keep up with the schedule. Our success relies on everyone’s full participation.  Let’s continue to work diligently to make this year the best that it can be for our seniors, who have only one season left.  Let’s cherish every moment together and make it the best year possible!
