Parents – Please see that your student starts exercising in the heat NOW!! It is imperative that all students get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast and hydrate in advance. Please send your student to camp with a good lunch and a refillable water bottle. Don’t forget sneakers, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. They will be outside, and it will be hot!!! Please wear comfortable clothing! Again IT WILL BE HOT!
Wait . . . . . . There’s more!
We have an amazing Band, amazing students and amazing instructors – but without our amazing parent volunteers . . . well, there’s a lot that just wouldn’t happen. So we need YOU to volunteer!! If you are already a CCPS volunteer, please check out our Website and sign up to help! Most of our Fall Events are already posted and many of you have signed up!! Thank YOU!! But we have many open spaces!!! This is a GREAT WAY to meet other Band Parents and make new friends and see old friends!! Please sign up today!!
Instructor Lunches – To show our appreciation to the ladies and gentlemen who are out there in the heat teaching our students during band camp, we have always provided lunch. This could be lunch for 8-12 people. If you are interested in this great offering, but need more information, please contact Cori or Liz – we’d be glad to answer any questions!
Band Family Cook Out – Come On you Masters of the Grill!!! We need your skill to grill for our Annual Band Family Cook Out after the Band Camp performance on Friday, August 12th. Check out the Website for available jobs!!
Mandatory Volunteer Meeting – Tuesday, August 9th at 7pm in the Band Room.
Be There or Get eaten by a Shark!
Almost done . . . .Fundraising
The Bigger and Better we are – The more we Cost! Ain’t that the truth!
We have several fundraising opportunities – and we consider them opportunities because the more money we raise through fundraising, they less money we have to pay out of our pockets! We work very hard to keep our Band Fees low – and that is good for everyone!
