As we prepare for mini-camp this week please make sure that you arrive with plenty of water and bring a lunch with you. We will be in the heat so you'll also need plenty of sunscreen. Our goal for minicamp is to get through most of the first song of our show.
9-12 outdoor rehearsal.
1-5 sectional rehearsals
Don't forget our new parents meeting on the 10th. I will be posting the handbook this week with info about camp.
We will have a meeting for all marching band parents on August 10th to go over items needed for Camp and for the season. If you are a new marching band parent please try to attend this meeting. The necessary forms required for marching band participation will be collected at this meeting. They are also available at www.pitmanband.org in the forms section.
Three forms are needed:
Medical Emergency Form
Medical History Form
Parent Permission Form (This one needs to be notarized)
If you need a hard copy please have your child pick them up at practice.
Band Camp is approaching. The cost of camp this year is 275.00 and includes a show t-shirt. Camp will be August 13-18th with the Parent Preview show being held at Davis field on the evening of the 18th when we return from camp. Camp is a very exciting time for all of us as it's where we learn the entire show we will be performing all fall.
Below are two google forms...please fill out one per child. There one form for instrumentalists and one just for guard as they both require different items.
If you need any assistance at all please let us know and we can definitely work with you.
We are starting the cinnamon roll fundraiser for all the students accounts. For every cinnamon roll sold your child will get 2.00 profit placed in their student account for use on any and all band related expenses. This is not limited to trips and can also be used to purchase any instrumental need, such as new instrument, mouthpieces, reeds...etc... It's a great way for the kids to get ahead and help themselves earn money.
The forms are available on our website...I also have hard copies if anyone needs them.
