We hope everyone has had an enjoyable and relaxing summer so far!  Here are some upcoming events and items that need your attention:

1.  A reminder that uniform fittings are July 12th and 14th in the band room.  Please be sure you have ordered your Black Drillmaster band shoes.  Rookies:  You will want to wear these during the first week or so of Marching Band to break them in.  This will help avoid blisters during the parade.

2.  Leadership Retreat:  Details to come soon.  We are waiting to see if the river levels rise before we book our canoe trip. We would like to paddle down the river, not carry our canoes for 8 miles. We do need a parent volunteer who would be willing to bring a grill to grill burgers and hot dogs for the retreat.  Please contact Mr. Smith if you are able.

3.  If you have lost touch with your instrument, now is a great time to reconnect with it and reintroduce yourself.  The better you sound on July 18th the more pleasant your life will be.

4.  Practice!
