Weekly News - July 14, 2019
**This is a long one, with a lot of important info, so please read the entire newsletter! They get shorter after Band Camp, I promise!
We had a great turnout yesterday at our marching field clean up event! Good to see everyone, new families and returning. It was a great start to the season! Thanks to all who helped out!
First, let's talk about our Volunteer needs in the next few weeks. We have committees that need YOUR help during Band Camp.
- Uniform Fitting is a biggie in the spotlight and needs the most help. With 180 students to fit for uniforms, we need 8 volunteers each day around the lunch hour. Click HERE to sign up!
- Band Camp Social Events need chaperones for a variety of events. Go visit the Volunteers Page to sign up to help.
Next Up for our new families, you received an email from our Board Secretary with instructions on accessing Charms, our payment and communication portal. If you haven't gotten in yet, please do so today. Take a few minutes and update the really important fields: Student Email, and Cell Phone, Parent Email and Cell Phone, and if you want to add other adults that need to be kept in the loop, please do. Reach out if you need help.
With everyone now in Charms, a heads up that the first Band Statement will be going out later today in email. Refer to the FAQ page and the Student Account Policy page for details - All your questions are there.
Last topic this week on Band Camp. Our Section Leaders have training this coming Thursday and Friday. Then next week, we kick off Band Camp officially with our Freshmen on Monday July 22nd.
We also have our first family social event. Plan to join us for a short evening dinner to get to know our Band Community:
