07-FourthParade02 cropped.jpgWe have three rehearsals remaining for marching band and color guard, before we start Band Camp on August 7th. Remember, Band Camp runs from 12 noon – 8 p.m. August 7th – 11th AND August 14th – 18th.

At Thursday rehearsals, students get a sneak peek at our show music (all four movements!), lear some marching basics (bring water and comfortable clothes), and play some of our favorite football game pep tunes.

(FYI, Percussion students meet with Andy on Mondays 1-4 p.m.)

These rehearsals are not mandatory, but if you are in town, then we expect students to come to the rehearsals and get a head start on the season. Also, if you haven’t registered and paid your donation for the marching season, please do so soon. Click HERE to register. We have plenty of options for paying, and hope that we can have money in our program to pay our coaches for band camp and the season.

We are hoping/expecting all students to pay $250 for Band Camp (scholarships are available…no student will be left out!), and $550 for the rest of marching season. This includes $50 for meals at all competitions. If you can pay the complete $800 for the season, or more, we gladly accept contributions via our registration form, via our monthly contribution plan, or at any time during the school year. If you are able to sponsor other students it helps us tremendously because we need everyone, students/staff/parents to be successful.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Director Kevin McKeown at komckeown@smmusd.org.
