Band begins at 8:00am on Monday, July 12. Students should report to the band room with their instruments, music, and a pencil. There is no staggered report times and all students should enter through the band room doors (#6). Masks are NOT required. Rehearsal will end at 12:00pm.
Other things to consider for a successful first day:
Students should wear comfortable, athletic-type clothing. We will be outside for a good part of the day. Long pants, jeans etc. are not appropriate for summer marching band.
Students must wear tennis shoes.
Consider wearing a hat and sunglasses. Students may also want to bring sunscreen.
Students must bring their own water. Water bottles should be labeled with your name and we never share water. We will take plenty of group water breaks and students are always permitted to go to the sideline for a quick drink.
Eat a healthy breakfast. The students earn Phys. Ed credit for a reason…although we have a GREAT time together, much of what we do can be strenuous and is most likely in the sun and heat. Take care of yourself prior to arriving in the morning.
Rehearsals will be from 8:00am-12:00pm Monday-Friday for the first two weeks.
