Band Camp 2018

Good evening everyone!
I pray that your summers have been great! Last week, we got approval for our marching band camp this year. It will be held M 8/20-F 8/24, from 5p-7:30p. Please see the attached letter for details. We will be mailing hard copies to incoming 9th graders, but feel free to forward, as well. Students, please pre-register on the website. It only takes 30 seconds to complete.
Thank you, and enjoy the remainder of your summer!

Marching Band Mini-Camp

Mini-Camp was finally approved this afternoon because of delays relating to repairs on our hallway. We will hold camp for the marching band from Mon 8/28Th 8/31 from 5-8pm. Attire will be solid back shorts, plain white t-shirt, and athletic shoes each day. I was able to get some plain black shorts for my son from Modell’s for $8, but I’m guessing you can probably find some even cheaper at Walmart or Forman Mills. Right now, we are only set up for musicians; I will advise if the flags and/or dancers need to report once i hear back from their coaches. Please share this information with new students who you may know are coming to Parkdale, and let me know if you have any questions.

SLC members need to be enrolled to our SLC group on Remind.

Thanks, and enjoy the rest of your vacations. (I’m sure I’m forgetting something.)
