Your student should attend with you and plan to stay for their first full rehearsal from 3PM-5PM.
They will need to wear proper attire (tshirt, shorts, socks and tennis shoes (hats, bandannas, and sunglasses also help)). Also be sure to pack extra shoes and socks during the week (the first pair can get wet marching on the grass in the morning), sunscreen, water bottle (we have water available for them to fill up). Snacks and water will be available during the day.
They should eat a light breakfast (we don't want someone passing out on the field), and be drinking plenty of water today, tonight, tomorrow, etc. so that they are well hydrated BEFORE they get out in the heat. They will also be served a good lunch each day.
Band Camp is 8AM-6PM every day. If your on time, your late! So best to have them their at least 15 minutes ahead of time so they can get their equipment and get to the field.
There are parent volunteers there helping during the day with lunch, handing out snacks, first aid, water breaks, etc. If you have not signed up to help please consider signing up tomorrow at the meeting. You don't have to do a whole day, just do what you can, it is a great way to meet other parents and see how hard your student is working! See Debbie Oliver to sign up.
There will be a performance on Friday night to show you all they have learned during the week (you will be AMAZED!). Invite your family and friends to come out and see a little of The Band of Silver's half time show before the first game.
The Band Booster Board has been working hard to get things ready for this week and are looking forward to meeting all of you and having you become a part of this great team. We don't ask you to do everything but please volunteer to do something. If everyone does a little we can accomplish so much. We have lots of things to choose from (concessions, chaperones, fundraisers, committees, etc.) and you will have the opportunity to sign up tomorrow at the meeting.
