I hope the end of the school year is wrapping up well for everyone! I just wanted to send a few quick reminders!
June Mini-Camp - Tuesday-Thursday this week - 6-9
Our June Mini-Camp is scheduled for this week. We will rehearse Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening from 6-9. Wind players, please plan on bringing your instruments. Front Ensemble and Wind Players will be receiving the first draft of the Marching Band show, as well as additional warmups and such. I highly recommend a 1 inch 3-ring binder and sheet protectors for your music and eventually drill, to ensure it survives the entire season.
In addition, please dress properly for rehearsal. Avoid wearing jeans, wear loose fitting clothing to allow for movement, and most importantly, ATHLETIC-STYLE SNEAKERS. I highly discourage canvas shoes like Converse. They do NOT offer proper support. Wearing properly athletic shoes will ensure a safe and success season with less risk of any injury as they offer proper support.
Volunteer Spot Sign-up
Thank you to the parents and family members who have already signed up for our Volunteer Spot signup program. As mentioned at our full orientation last week, we are in need of many volunteers to make for a safe and successful season for our band. In order to do so, we need your help as often as possible! In less than one week, 15% of the available opportunities have already been filled. With your help, we can fill even more well in advance of the season. To volunteer, click this link: http://vols.pt/EBDsah A reminder, if you wish the chaperone on the buses or in the stands, you do need clearances. If you wish to volunteer to help carry pit equipment or work in the concession stand, you do not.
Remind Text Service
Please take a moment, if you have not done so to text @bsmb2016 to 81010 from your cell phone to sign up for text updates. These will be used if weather changes plans, or if we have travel delays throughout the season. This is a totally free service, and absolutely a huge help to the upcoming season should scheduling change take place.
Our band is on Facebook! You can find the page by visiting: http://www.facebook.com/groups/bigspringbands/ to request access. This page is available to ALL current band members and families and is a closed group.
The final link today is our band website, http://www.bigspringbands.net which is in the process of being completely updated. The most important element on the site is the calendar, which is complete for the ENTIRE season. All dates for Marching Band are loaded on there all the way through Championships in November.
See everyone Tuesday evening. Remember to bring your Contact Form and Medical Form with you if you have not turned it in. Other forms are also accepted should you be ready to submit them as well. If you have any questions, please let me know!
