The Marching Cardinals have been rehearsing all summer long on Wednesday nights, and now it is time to get the whole band together! We are so excited to kick-off our 2018 August band camps! This post has some information and reminders for both new and returning students.
When & Where
Rehearsal starts every day at 9:00am. You should stop by the band room for any instructions, drop off your lunch/cases/sun screen, and then head out to Dorais Field (football field). We rehearse from 9am-12pm, and then from 1pm-5pm. During the hour lunch break you can stay on campus and eat (if you bring a lunch) or leave and pick something up at home/Jimmy Johns/etc.
What to Bring
How the Day Looks

What am I forgetting?
Is your travel permission slip/medical information filled out?
Did you pay your band fee?
Did you attend the code meeting or watch the code video?
Did you complete your Activities Office registration and $20 fee?
Did you work on memorizing the music over the summer?
Did you sign up for text message reminders for important updates?
