Good morning Band Families,
Your student has made it through band camp and hopefully has had an amazing experience and a new appreciation for what it means to be in the Emerald Regiment Marching Band! For our new families, when you see what your kids are doing at the Parent Preview (Aug 24) you will also have a new appreciation for just how hard they are working. As a parent I love watching the show and seeing them all work together as a team. They are learning an important life skill that will serve them well throughout high school, college, and their future.
Next week marks the beginning of night camp and Saturday camp. Students will practice throughout the season on Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. Please sync the bands calendar with your personal calendar so you can stay on top of these dates. If you have any technical issues you’d like help with, you can respond to this email (please don’t reply all) and Annette will be happy to help you out.
SPIRIT WEAR Online store will be closing at 11:59pm on 8/4 (Sun) and WILL NOT be able to be re-opened. Please use the link below to order before the deadline. https://bvsw-band-2019.itemorder.com/sale
