Eagle FANS Camp...

Friday July 29th is Eagle FANS Camp at the High School from 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM. This camp is an orientation day for new students.

Mr. Duren has ok'ed students to leave at 10 am to participate in this camp. Students are expected to arrive at the normal time for band camp that morning and then be dismissed. The entire band (including freshman) will be expected to return to school at 12:30 to play at a pep rally that day at 1:15pm. Parents are asked not to attend the pep rally.
  • Band students need to wear their white polo and khaki shorts for the pep rally. If you do not have your polo then make sure your student wears a white shirt.
  • Starlettes will be wearing their pep rally dresses.
  • Majorettes will get info from Emily regarding which one of their matching camp outfits or pep rally outfit.
  • Color Guard will wear all black if the pep rally outfit has not arrived by then.


High School Registration...

Tuesday and Thursday afternoon will be the Senior and Sophomore school registration days. Your student is still expected to be at band camp. Try to get their registration started when the doors open, this should give plenty of time for the students to get to band camp on time.


Band Camp...

Congratulations you made it through your first week of band camp. Now on to week #2.

This week band camp is predicted to be very hot and muggy, please make sure your student brings plenty of water for band camp. Water is not provided. It is very important to encourage your student to stay hydrated during camp time. Our directors will be giving ample opportunity for every student to take water breaks. Encourage your student to take advantage of this as well as seek some shade during the break time. Also you may want to consider sending a hand towel with your student so that they can pour cold water on it and place the towel around the back of their neck. Any little tricks you can think of for your student to stay cool. If you have any questions regarding camp please do not hesitate to ask.
