Oak Mountain High School Drum-A-Thon Week 2011

The Drum-A-Thon will occur on the week of July 18th-22nd. The Drum Line will rehearse extensive hours throughout the week and perform on Friday the 22nd for anyone interested in seeing the progress from this event. This is a fund raiser to help percussion students purchase mallets, sticks, and other items that will be needed during marching season. A downloadable pledge form is available here.


Band Camp Update

WATER, WATER, WATER!! Send plenty of water with your student. One small bottle of water will not be enough. Your student needs a water container capable of holding a sufficient amount of water. They can also bring a snack.

Students are on the band field for the majority of practice. Please send bug spray and sun screen with them or have them put it on before they arrive.

Students should wear comfortable, lightweight clothes...i.e. gym shorts, light colored t-shirts. Tennis shoes MUST to be worn when at practice.

It is IMPORTANT for all band members to be at practice every day. One day missed for a student could mean a loss of a world of information that they have to catch up on. Remember band camp is required and if your student needs to miss for any reason, please let the directors know.


Rain and band camp...

Clounds Thunder RainIn the event of rain during band camp, band camp still takes place. The students use every available space within the school to practice.
