North Cobb High School Band 2016-2017



VOLUNTEER TRAINING

Who needs to attend?  Anyone planning on volunteering for the NCHS Marching Band (hospitality, chaperones, front line, 8th grade night, uniforms, etc) and you did not attend the meeting on the 21st.

When & Where? Tuesday, July 26th @ 7:30 PM in the Chorus Room which is located down the hall from the band room on the left.

Why should I attend? It is mandatory for all volunteers to receive important information from our directors before being around the students. You will also receive information from each committee about the role they play and how you can sign up to become part of their support team.

Medical forms were sent home with each student last week. Each student must have a notarized form on file in order to travel with the North Cobb Band which means anyone going to the DCI show must have a form on file by Saturday, July 30th.

We will have volunteers to notarize your form for free at the volunteer training on July 26th. You will need to sign the form in front of the person notarizing. Thank You! 


DCI SHOW - JULY 30th

The band will be attending the DCI show at the Georgia Dome on July 30th.

Departure time from school is 5:30 PM, returning at approximately 12:00 AM

This is a great show and lots of fun for everyone!



The cost will be $10 for chaperones and $25 for each parent/family member. A parent/family bus will be available at an additional $15 per seat.



Please click on the sign-up link below if you would like to purchase tickets for your family to attend the show. Please note that you will need to sign up for a ticket and a bus seat if you plan to ride the bus.  If we do not have enough parents sign up we will have to cancel the parent bus.



Payment for any tickets or seats requested must be received by Friday, July 29th. Please drop all payments into the gray payment box in the band room.





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.
