August 14th Band Parent Meeting Minutes
Went over Friday night schedule:
~ Kids stay after school, eat around 4:30pm, dress & play at halftime. Should be done around 10-10:30pm, when game is over and band room is straightened & cleaned up.
~ ‘Uniform’ for this Friday is Navy uniform shirt and choice of jeans, denim or khaki shorts (dress code length). Shirts must be tucked in and a belt. Tennis shoes or sneakers are ok.
Still have volunteer slots available for Friday night. Should receive communication from Leads if you have volunteered as to where to meet, time, etc.
~Food crew to arrive at 4:15
~Pit crew to meet by picnic table before the start of the game
Mini Camp on Saturday 8/18 8am-5pm
