Good afternoon Marching Raiders!
We are gearing up for band camp which means there are activities galore. I wanted to call out a few key items coming and encourage all to sync their calendars with charms to stay up to date as the year progresses. Syncing your calendar can be done on your phone but is easiest done through the desktop version of google calendar for android. Directions can be found on the banner of the charms calendar.
Music is out on charms for the band to see and start practicing. Instructions on how to view are in the news section on charms. Mr. Craig wants everyone to focus on the three warm-ups first to be ready to go for camp.
7/18 – Rookie Camp Starts. 830am-1130am
7/19 – Mr. Proctor Meet and Greet. 5-7pm, Lower Commons Ryle HS
7/19-7/21 – Uniform Fittings. Check charms for when you should arrive. Parent Volunteers needed
7/24 – Full Band Camp Starts!
8/4 – Friends and Family Preview and Picnic. 6-8pm
Lastly, making sure our band is successful takes a village of parents, family and friends. We need volunteers for every facet of the Marching Band season. There are many ways to help – band camp, competitions, Ryle Tournament of Bands, bingo, concessions the end of season banquet, and more. We are also always in need of dontated goods. Take some time to review the volunteer section on charms to see how you can help make the band a success!
