Fall Camp Recap

We had a wonderful fall marching camp this year. An amazing amount of growth was shown in all students and we are in a great place going into the first week of school. Don’t forget that marching band starts the first day of school at 6:45AM!

Pep Rehearsals Next Week

All band students are invited to the pep band rehearsals on Monday 8/15 and Wednesday 8/17 from 9-11AM. The band will be playing at the opening school assembly, so we need to get all band students up to speed on the fight song and pep music. Please bring your instrument and learn from the upperclassmen! Marching band students: remember your uniform on Wednesday for pictures for the sports program.

Band Sponsorships

Students were given information on fundraising sponsorships for the band for the 2016-17 school year. We are looking for individual, family, and local business donations to help with our budget. The form is here: Sponsor Letter. All sponsor forms need to be returned by Friday, August 26.

First Booster Meeting

All families are invited to our first booster meeting on Thursday 8/25. We need to get a coalition of parents together to help with events this year. Snacks and juice will be provided. Marching band parents, bring schedules so we can coordinate who will be traveling with us to competitions.

CHARMS

Please look on CHARMs to make sure all information is still up to date and correct (including your current account balance!). You can log in through a link on www.highlandband.com under STUDENTS. School code is highlandhighband.
