June Camp!

posted Jun 25, 2017, 3:09 AM by Steven Johnson

Greetings Raiders,

 

We are excited to get started on our June camp…June 26-30 10am-7pm. We start right at 10am in their designated locations so we highly recommend an arrival time of 9:45 so that they are ready to go. Rehearsal ends at 7pm but they will need apprx. 10 minutes to return equipment to the correct locations. This week represents 25% of our marching season’s rehearsal schedule so it’s vital that we start on time and move fast. We have an ambitious plan for the week and we’re going to try to hit as many check boxes as possible.

 

Policy Update: Absences need to be communicated using absence request form or from a parent directly. You can copy the one in the back of your handbook, print out the one at www.RockledgeMusic.org/Members or have your student pick up hard copies in the band room and bring them home for you.

 

Parent Meeting – Tuesday – 6pm. Please plan for at least one parent to attend – preferably both if available. For the new parents we will be going over what your next four years are going to look like and how you can be involved to help out. For the returning parents we’re going to go over the RHS Band Parents’ Association and how, **with your help**, they will benefit you and your student. If you missed the registration day we will have forms for you to fill out.

 

Students will NOT be permitted to leave campus during lunch.

 

Please join Remind for smaller updates/notifications. To receive them via text message, send a message to 81010 with the text “@raiderregi” (no quotes). You can also download the Remind app and join a class by searching for the name @RaiderRegi.

 

We will be outside this week, in the sun! Plan to have a MINIMUM half gallon of water with you for when we are outside. Sunscreen. Hat. Sunglasses. Athletic attire. You will need it. We will not be sharing water with each other. Bring your own.

 

Weather forecast is not great for this week. Lots of rain in the forecast but reasonable mid-80s temperatures. Bring a light jacket. A drizzle or a light rain will not send us inside. Moderate to heavy rain or ANY chance of lightning and we are inside. Our inside rehearsal locations are building 2 and 3 (the music building and auditorium).

 

2nd Payment is due on June 30 (Friday). Updated invoices went out a few minutes ago. This is the first time we’re doing invoices electronically…..Check your spam folders… If you see a discrepancy, -OR- you didn’t receive an email, let me know. It was sent to the Parent/Guardian1 Email address. You have two options for this payment. Pay 1/3rd of your remaining balance June 30, or you can pay off your balance in full. If you need more time to make a payment please contact us and we’ll work with you.

 

Information for camp is at this link www.RockledgeMusic.org/members/band/band-camp . Most of this information is already in your handbook and guidebook, so if you read that, this is just a friendly reminder. If you have not received a copy of the handbook yet click here to view an electronic copy.

 

Hands-On Repair help needed….We have a drum major podium that needs a bit of TLC. It’s an older platform and while it works great it needs some TLC so we can count on it for many more years to come.

 

If this can be you…..PLEASE stop in and see me. We don’t have to do this project this week. This can be done any time in the month of July as well.

Please be advised that we have a very ambitious plan and subject to change due to program needs and weather conditions. We may not be able to do everything on here but we will try. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. This will be an intense week but will also lay the groundwork for a successful year. Please don’t hesitate to come early and see what we’re doing 😊!!!

 

Thank you!

Steven Johnson
