Band Camp ... What to Expect Week 2!!!!

Hello Marching Band Parents (Band, Dance & Guard)!!

Well Week 1 is done and it was GREAT!!!  

Once again, I would like to thank all who donated water and freeze pops for the bandies!  The kids and staff are very grateful to have both during and after a sun-filled day out on the field.  Still have a ton of both so none needed at this point.

Here is what to expect for Week 2 ... 

1.  Friday, August 22nd, is the Hampton Beach Trip.  Please complete, sign and return permission form no later than Wednesday, the 20th.  A hard copy of the form was given out to all bandies after dismissal Friday.  If you need a copy please email me ( and I'll zip one out to you.  We need an accurate count for Wednesday to confirm how many buses are needed.  No forms will be accepted Friday morning.

2. The entrance driveway to BHS is being completed this week and there will not be any access off of Cambridge Street to the school Thursdayand Friday.  So ... stay tuned ... for alternative instructions.  Parking needs to be in the Faculty Parking Lot across from Cafeteria!

3.  Tuesday, August 19th, is Freshmen Orientation.  All freshmen and mentors are excused from Band Camp that morning.  They go directly to orientation at 9 am and they MUST check in with Alyssa Dew upon returning to Band Camp when orientation is over (between 10:30 and 11:00).  This way they are sure to receive credit for the whole day and not be marked tardy or absent.

4.  Uniform Black Shoes (and black crew socks) .... every bandie (band, guard, dance) needs black shoes (and socks) to wear with his/her uniform.  Our first performance is Friday, September 5th, at home vs Billerica!!  If your bandie isn't sure what kind of shoes to get, please have them speak with their section leaders or captains. 

5.  Last but definitely not least ... SUNSCREEN every day regardless of clouds or sun ... they need to have it with them to reapply after lunch!!!!!!!!

We have a great group of kids this year!!!!  Can't wait for you to see all the hard work they are putting into the halftime show on Sept 5th!!!!
