Band Update – 7/1/19

Hi! It’s July all ready!!!

Wow! It got hot fast!!! We didn’t really have the time to get adjusted and used to the heat. We’ve been preaching the need for the kids to be drinking water, water, and more water as well as eating healthy (fruit, veggies, lean protein) and getting outside for a bit each day. Especially this week and leading up to band camp please help with reminders at home!!! We had a lot of kids with soda and energy drinks in their hands yesterday – now is not the time for that – we need to be hydrating with water. Thanks for the help!

Just a reminder – we need the Medical Information Form by the parades at the end of the month – please get those in! We usually have a notary at rehearsal! All forms are at the bottom of this update.

Here’s the week:
