We will be short on Instructors this year as Ray McGraw got in called in on a Special assignment just last week (he could tell you but then he'd have to kill you ;) So I'll be working with brass, Laura Vallad will be working with woodwinds, and Brandon Patrick Brown will be working with percussion.
We'll have a short "Expectations" meeting at 8 am Monday in the band room and then heading right out to basics at 8:30 am. Make sure to bring your music, any meds you need for the day (that are yours) and give them to chaperones when you arrive.
A checklist for Monday:
Extra pair of socks (it gets wet on the field in the morning)
music (all 3 tunes)
Whatever ingredient(s) you need to bring for dinners
If you have not turned in your band camp form, health form, and money you need to bring those items with you Monday (there are still quite a few of you who haven't turned those in), please.
And there will be some things moved around in the kitchen and commons and I know the custodians are working hard to get things ready for the school year (and they are overworked anyways!) so we need to work around that unfortunately (same deal with the library as the main part is taken up with Technology projects Mr. Wolgast is working on).
There will be some surprises that come up (as always) so we need to be flexible but focused. I'm looking forward to having a great week with you guys, so get some rest this weekend and get ready for a fun and productive week!
