Band News Year of Elvis

11 Aug

There’s just 1.5 days left in band camp!!  Time flies when you’re having fun!!  It’s crunch time to get the new marching show ready to go, please show up on time, eat a good breakfast and hydrate.  You need to be out there listening to Mr. Goff and learning all the new music if you want to perform on Saturday night.

For freshman and freshman parents; Fresh fins is at 9am this Friday morning 8/11. It is about one and a half hours long.  If you would like your student to attend, they must be able to get caught up on what they missed to be able to perform on Saturday.  As an alternative, there is a new student/parent meeting the following Monday night 8/14 and they will go over the same information and a locker can be purchased then also.  Mr. Goff will be able to get each freshman band student their schedule for them.
