Another successful band camp!

As band camp comes to a close, we have a few announcements. It is supposed to be really nice tomorrow (Friday) morning, so we are going to take our group photo! All members of the band – instrumentalists, drumline, dance team, majorettes, colorguard, managers and honor guard – should arrive for band camp at the normal time of 8 AM and prepare to take the photo. We will be in full uniform for all groups (polos for managers and honor guard) and will take the photo in the HS courtyard. The morning is when the light is best, so we will take the photo as soon as everyone is dressed.

We will take SECTION photos separately, over the next couple of weeks. The group photo needs to be taken this week, because we need to submit it for the football game printed program.

We will have our section competition tomorrow at 9:30 AM. Everyone is invited to join us! See who will win the coveted Golden Drillmaster!

Tomorrow is the day that everyone needs to bring their own lunch. We will have fruit, granola bars and other items that have been available during the week, but the “main course” is up to each student. If this presents a hardship to anybody, please contact Mrs. West.

Our Kennywood trip is Saturday, and if you would like to pick up your son or daughter after the parade – instead of having them ride the bus back to the school – please fill out the transportation form available at www.gsbands.org/transportation.pdf and turn it in to Mrs. West NO LATER than 3 PM tomorrow. We will not take any transportation forms on Saturday. Report time on Saturday is 9 AM. We will feed them lunch at 1 PM, and our parade is at 8 PM. We will be back at the school around 11 PM. Mrs. West will send a Remind message when we get onto Route 30 to confirm that time, but plan to be at the HS at 11 PM.

We are really proud of how well our students have done over the last few weeks, and it is going to be really fun to perform for the whole community. Thank you for all of your support!
