REMINDER TO MARCHING BAND STUDENTS – SIGN UP FOR YOUR UNIFORM FITTING APPOINTMENT
Marchers (does not apply to Colorguard):
We're getting ready for next season already. This year we are doing uniform fittings a little differently. We will start in July and hold them in conjunction with the Wednesday practices. Each date is assigned to a grade (seniors get to go first etc). You can sign up for any appointment slot assigned to your grade. If you are unable to make your grade's date, you can sign up for a later date. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, the uniform parents reserve the right to have you reschedule. No drop-ins will be allowed unless there is a free appointment slot.
Students may sign up at:
BAND CAMP PACKETS – GET THEM IN!!!!
If you still have not received your band camp packet, please stop by the band room between 1 and 5 Monday thru Friday to pick one up. Or, there are extra band camp packets on my front porch at 1150 W. Knickerbocker Dr., Sunnyvale, 94087 available for pick up at any time.
Remember, there is a $75 late fee if band camp forms and payment are not returned by July 8th!
Please check with anyone that you know who’s in marching band to make sure they have received their packets and pass on the information. I may not have their email addresses so they aren’t receiving this blast.
