Updates and Drum Corps
Tuesday, July 12th, 2016
Good afternoon! I apologize for the confusion between dates and times on events for this week and post-camp. The information was being edited by two people in different files and I messed it ALL UP. I THINK I have it corrected now.
On Thursday, percussion will start at 1 p.m.
Earlier this afternoon I received a phone call from another Georgia Band Director. The Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps has had a problem with their host facility for the early morning tomorrow and throughout the day, they asked if we could host them.
Thanks to the generosity of our faculty, staff, and administration, we are going to be able to host them! They will be working in the stadium after 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.
If your student has ever been interested in drum corps or if you or them want to see the best of the best, the Crossmen are a fantastic group to get to see work so up close. I am encouraging all area directors and staff and students to attend.
Students should dress accordingly and wear sunscreen and pack snacks and drinks if they plan to stay a while. I recommend coming at night when its cool and they’re doing more show runs.
When I have a schedule for their day, I will send it out. Be sure to look them up on facebook and instagram and show them your support.
We are getting to host TWO World Class top 12 corps this summer! This is a big deal for our kids and our program, and though short notice due to their emergency, I hope those who can come for some or all of the day can come out and learn and enjoy this opportunity!
We will host the Blue Stars July 28 and 29 while we are also in camp. We will be building our camp schedule around opportunities to watch them rehearse, but we will still be having camp on those days and attending the DCI show that Friday night.
Our parent meeting is scheduled for Thursday evening at 6 p.m. in the band room where we will have student/parent camp orientation.
We hope you and your student will attend to make sure they are prepared and know what to expect. Its also a good time to learn how our communications and Charms work. It should last 45 minutes.
Thanks and have a great day!
