SUMMER BAND WEEK 4
August 17th - August 21st


Hello - 

Week four is here! Before we look ahead and talk about this week, we wanted to reflect on the past three weeks and thank the community of parents, students and staff who worked together to make the past three weeks safe and successful for our band students. Moving forward, we will continue to implement our protocols and help ensure your student is safe during their time spent on campus! 

Going into week four it is important to note that the next two weeks will only be half days for those coming to campus (7:30-11:30am) for in-person instruction. It is also important to note that all full band activities will take place outside and follow all social distancing measures. We have many exciting activities planned these next two weeks.

We have GREAT guest clinicians coming in who will undoubtedly help elevate our band program and energize our students as we push into the final weeks of our 2020 summer band camp! It should be also noted that a lot of instruction will be shared while these guests are out and missing a rehearsal can make staying up to speed difficult for some students. 

Following rehearsals, all students will be expected to return home immediately to allow time for them to eat lunch and be ready for their designated virtual master class instruction. 


WANT TO JOIN US?:
If you are a student who was has not been on campus these past two weeks but feel you may want to return to campus starting this week, please know that we would love to have you! By no means is there a pressure to return to campus but we want you to know that we are ready to start teaching you as soon as you and your families are comfortable returning to campus.

HHS BAND - HEALTH SCREENING FORM
Booster Announcement 

It has been great to see so many of our band kids at the school these past several weeks, rehearsing music and perfecting marching techniques! As we prepare for the upcoming school year, things will look different in the classroom AND for our marching band but we look forward to making this a fantastic one! Boosters will continue to look for ways to raise funds for the band program, and as those opportunities arise, we will get that information to you.  We do have an exciting opportunity for a new fundraiser and will announce this at our first general booster meeting of the ‘20-‘21 school year. 
 
The first general booster meeting will take place via ZOOM, on Tuesday September 1st @ 6:30pm.  (We will send out the meeting link the week prior.) In the meantime, please visit the booster store, on the band website, to join the boosters and to purchase the NEW show shirt for our 2020 marching show…  “Moving Forward.” See shirt info below! 

 
I look forward to seeing your faces on my screen in a few weeks, until then, please stay safe!
 
Much love,
Lesley Allen
