MUSIC CAMP RECAP
This past week we welcomed our newest program members joining our winds, percussion, colorguard, and the start of our newest section, the Field Dance Company. With the start of summer right around the corner, it was enjoyable to get all the students together, allow them to get to know each other, and begin working for the 2019 fall. If there are any new members whose parents were unable to attend the BAND 101 meeting, PLEASE COMPLETE THIS FORM so that we can get some basic information from you regarding your student.
SUMMER BAND PACKET
In the Summer Band Packet, you will find the following:
•Summer Band Checklist with everything your student need to do over the next 8 weeks. There are 56 days until we will all be together again and we need each student to show up prepared on July 28th. Following this list will help your student do that.
•NISD Physical Paperwork for BAND. This is the paper you need to take to your primary care physician when your student completes their physical. Please make sure I get this by the date listed on the Summer Band Checklist
