Hey Band! (hey, what?)
It's supposed to be close to 100 degrees Tuesday. Ouch.

To make it more tolerable, Mr. Mister will be out on the field. Also, rehearsal will end at 4pm, and McKee's pool will be open for swimming and hot dogs from 5 - 7. Directions available at Band Camp.

Yay Band!

How Are YOU Getting Ready For Marching Band??

Band Camp is in less than two weeks - yay! Now's the time to make sure you're physically ready. Here are some things you can do:
  • If you've been sitting around, get out and walk every day for 30 minutes
  • If you've been somewhat active, run/walk every day for 30 minutes
  • If you've been active, work running into your routine
  • Make sure to eat a good balance of food, incorporating carbs, proteins, and healthy fats
  • Phase out soda and "energy" drinks - go for water and the occasional Gatorade
  • And make sure you and your equipment are good friends - your lips/hands/shoulders/legs/back will thank you!

Check out this kid...

We're Talking About Disneyland!

Irving and McKee are making calendar plans, and we need some information about Spring Break week and the Disney trip. We realized our preferred weekend for the trip includes Easter Sunday. We need to know RIGHT AWAY if this would be a problem for you and cause you to not be able to participate in the Disney trip. Please click on the VolunteerSpot link below and respond if you CAN NOT particpate in the Disney trip in 2016 if we are gone over Easter weekend.

Want more information on the trip? Potential cost? What you would be doing? Where we stay? How we get there?

All of that information will be available at the Band Camp picnic Friday August 28. Yay!
