The forms I sent home have a front and a back to complete. If you know that your student will not be participating, please email to let me know that, so I will not try to collect a form from them.

Optional Band Camp Meals Being Offered

When you review the Summer Band Camp schedule you'll note that there are 4 days (Tu 7/22, Th 7/24, M 7/28 and Tu 7/29) when our students will be in camp for 3 sessions daily (7-11:30a, 1-3p, and 4:30-8:30p). We are offering, on those 4 days only, the option of purchasing a lunch for your student. This is an effort to help those parents who may not be able to take a lunch to their student or who would prefer not to pack one or take their student out. (ALL students will still have the option of leaving the school to go out or home for lunch, or can bring a lunch from home.)

If you are interested in this option, we will have order forms available at the Spring concerts for Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band (Thursday, May 8th in the PAC) as well as at the OMMS Spring Concert a week later at OMMS. The lunch will include 2 plain Zaxby's Nibblers, chips, cookies, and a choice of a can of Coke or Sprite or a bottled water, for $5/meal. You will either choose to purchase a 4-meal plan or pass on this option. Payment of $20, in cash or check made payable to OMHS Band Boosters, must accompany the completed order form.

If you miss the concert, we will also be making order forms available on the website and you will have until the last day of school (5/23) to turn in your $20 and order form. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact Janet Adwell or Kristin Emerson.
