2017 BAND CAMP INFORMATION

MIAMI HIGH SCHOOL WARDOG BAND

2017-2018 School Year

 

Wardog Band Members and Family,

Greeting Band Family!!! I hope to find that each of you has had an amazing summer of fun, relaxation and a time to reset for another year. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this year. I am rested and back on track and ready to knock another season out of the park. Below will be all the information you need to know for band camp. Please block these dates on your calendars, as they are very important and mandatory by all MHS Band members for the 2017 Fall Season.

Also, here is the new Remind information for this fall. This is the easiest way to get information out quickly and efficiently, so please add this to your phone, both students and parents. If you could make sure that you have a document reader on your phone that will alleviate missed information. The Remind code is 81010 in the Recipient text box and the Code is @a4cdg67 to send as a text. Please do this ASAP, so you don’t miss anything important.

Aug. 9thth we have some important activities involved and all band members will be asked to attend. Those activities will run from 6:00-8:00pm.

 

Aug. 10th we will have a new ceremony that will take place. More details to follow. Keep late evening (9:00pm and after open)

 

Aug 11th, we will have our Family Picnic and Kick-off Concert in the MAC at MHS. Picnic will begin at 5:30 for all band members and their families and the concert will be free and open to the public beginning at 6:30pm. We will need parents available to serve and clean up before concert begins.

 

The MHS Band staff is very excited about the upcoming season and can’t wait to get started. See you in a couple of weeks!!!!

Mrs. Harris

 

 

P.S. Don’t forget that band fees are due during band camp and not later than the first week of school. Contracts will come home the first day of camp.

 

We have a band fee of $150 that takes care of all the students required t-shirts/shorts etc. This fee includes all the meals for our marching season, as well as supplies like reeds, valve oil and laundry expenses for the uniforms. We do the fee this way, so you just have to take care of it one time and we don’t repeatedly ask for money. We would like this paid by the first week of school.
