Band Update 8/1/17


Week 2! We’re having a great week, but we’re getting TIRED… please continue to encourage rest at home!!!

*If your child needs to miss any amount of camp for any reason, please let us know! We’re having a small “no call, no show” problem. During the school year this will result in sitting out on performances.
No one should miss band camp for registration – you can register during lunch (12-1:30pm) or after camp – registration goes until 7pm!

Here’s what we’ve got going on:

  • It’s time to order Spiritwear!!! Order forms went home yesterday, but please see the following for information.

  • Here’s the lunch plans for the rest of the week (there will be a vegetarian option too):
    • Wednesday, 8/2 – lunch provided by Vern Van Hoy – catered in by a local golf course
    • Thursday, 8/3 – lunch provided by ABOB – walking tacos!

Camp will run 8am-5pm Monday – Wednesday. Thursday will change – we’ll get out early to get cleaned up for the parent performance! Here’s the information on that:

  • This Thursday, 8/3 – Camp 8am – 3pm, AHS. Lunch is being provided by ABOB (Walking Tacos!!!). Camp will dismiss at 3pm so students can go home and shower for the parent performance.
    • 5:30pm – Meet at Public School Stadium (West) – students meet down by the trailer.
    • Dress: Blue ‘Echoes off the river’ show shirt, khaki shorts, long black socks, black marching shoes.
    • 6:30pm – Parent Performance Begins! Please invite anyone who is interested! We’re ready to show you what we’ve put together so far!
    • After the parent performance: Ice Cream Social at Shiver’s – let’s meet up for some ice cream to celebrate  a successful band camp! Thursday, August 3, we can meet at Shiver’s Frozen Custard from 7-9pm. Proceeds from that time frame will go to ABOB! You do have to park and order (drive thru doesn’t count) – the 100 staff will be heading that way after the parent performance – meet us there!
  • Mark your calendars! We have two Dine Out for ABOB events coming up!
    • Shiver’s – August 3 – 7-10pm. We’ll have a cool treat after the parent performance! We only receive proceeds from patio orders (no drive thru). No flyer – just order!
