PARENT MEETING THIS WEEK!!

There will be a mandatory meeting for all band and color guard parents on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00pm.

At this meeting you will have an opportunity to meet the band directors and camp staff as well as your booster board. You can also sign up for volunteer positions at the meeting.

Medical forms will be sent home with each student on Monday after practice. Parents, please complete the form without signature and bring it to the parent meeting on Tuesday evening July 19th. We will have volunteers to notarize your form for free. You will need to sign the form in front of the person notarizing. Thank You! 

(note: color guard forms have already been completed)



BAND CAMP ESSENTIALS

Parents, please help us help your children. Below is a list that will help keep your student safe and comfortable during band camp. They will be spending a great deal of time outside, so please dress for the heat. No jeans. PLEASE make sure they are well hydrated BEFORE they come and have eaten lunch PRIOR to coming to the school. We look forward to seeing everyone soon.


WATER BOTTLE - We will provide coolers to refill them throughout the day. THIS IS A BIG DEAL WITH THE TEMPERATURES WE ARE EXPERIENCING.


CLOSED TOED SHOES - no flip flops or sandals.


Also needed:


Comfortable, appropriate clothing

Hat/Visor & sunglasses

Sunscreen & bug spray

Pencil, music, instrument, reeds, valve oil, etc. to keep your instrument functioning.


DINNER - They will get a dinner break. Please send them with a sack meal or make arrangements to bring them something. Students cannot leave the school campus on break. It is important that everyone eat properly to avoid issues with heat and energy levels.



Band Camp Chaperones Needed!!!

We still have several slots open for chaperones (volunteers) during band camp. If you went through the chaperone training last year with Janeen Amason, you’re qualified. Even if the year happened a little quicker than you expected and you were never able to chaperone an event.

We will team you up with someone that knows the ropes and we’ll make sure you have a smooth entry into the world of serving our students. The primary focus for chaperones during camp is to make sure everyone stays hydrated and help out with any minor injuries.
Please click the link below to sign up. Bring a chair, water bottle, comfortable shoes and a smile. It’s going to be a great year!


*if this is your first time signing up - please leave us a note - thanks





Uniform Fitting Volunteers Needed


 

It's that time of year again! Time to get the NCHS Warrior Band looking sharp. We will be fitting the kids for uniforms during the first full week of band camp (July 18-22). There is no sewing and no prior experience required for helping out. This is a great way to get to meet lots of the kids at once so it’s perfect for brand new band parents as well as familiar faces.

If you would like to volunteer on the day your child will be fitted, take a look at the schedule below. Please consider signing up for as many spots as your schedule will allow. We have a very limited amount of time to get 200+ students fitted for their uniforms so that we can get them cleaned and prepped for the first game. 

Seniors will be fitted on Monday, July 18th
Juniors will be fitted on Tuesday, July 19th
Sophomores will be fitted on Wednesday, July 20th
Freshman A-L will be fitted on Thursday, July 21st
Freshman M-Z will be fitted on Friday, July 22nd

All time slots will be from 10:45 am - 1:00 pm.

Thank you in advance for your help! It is most appreciated!

Student Leadership Clinic

If your student is interested in growing as a leader and person, this clinic would be a great experience for them! Cost is $10 and that includes a pizza dinner. Students from all sixteen Cobb County high schools will be present representing their communities. This opportunity is open to anyone currently, or aspiring to be a leader in the North Cobb Band. We will collect the $10 and register them for it. Forms will be available in my office on Monday and $$ will be due by Friday the 22nd.
