Happy Friday to you all-
I hope that this finds you well andlooking forward to the weekend. This upcoming week we have our Festival AwardsConcert. This is one of my favorite concerts of the year. This year, we havethe concert a couple of weeks before our festival dates. This will allow us the opportunity to replicatenervous we will have during festival. For those of you that don’t know, Festivalis basically our state testing. Not onlydo we get the opportunity to perform, we are tested on our ability to sightread. Sight-reading is basically a popquiz. Everything we have been working onfor the past X number of years is put to test. I encourage you to join us in the sight-reading room. Once we are done performing on the stage, wehead into one of the band rooms. Please join us in there.

Day two complete-
This band camp is off to a great start! The kids are doing great, the atmosphere is great, the parent volunteers are great, and the spirit throughout the program is great!
On Thursday, we will be having our first booster meeting of the year. This is an opportunity to learn how to get more involved in our program, get details on the season and met other parents/friends of our program. We will also be kicking off our first fundraiser of the year, THE MATTRESS FUNDRAISER. Frank from Custom Fundraising will be here to give you more information about the fundraiser. Without doing anything other than showing up, we will receive a cash donation for every adult in the room. This is the easiest way to help support of program. The booster meeting will start at 7pm and then you can come watch the end of rehearsal.
The second annual Lip Dub event will take place on Saturday, August 10th at 7:30 in the GPAC. Please come watch the students (and boosters if you are brave enough) sing and dance their way into our hearts. I promise you will laugh!!!
Tuesday, August 13th will be the Parent Preview and Potluck dinner. That night we will play through some of the music from the show as well as our Fight Song, Alma Mater, and Star-Spangled Banner. There will also be an opportunity for you to get involved by learning how to march, spin a flag, or play some percussion. After the festivities, each section will have a potluck to cap the end of band camp. This also provides another opportunity for you to met some of the other parents in our program as well as have some fun.
We hope you can make it to some of the future events, starting with the booster meeting on Thursday at 7pm in the band room.
Thank you for all of your support.
