Hello to our 2019 band seniors, section leaders and class representatives!

"It's beginning to feel a lot like BAND CAMP!"  100 degrees, sticky, hazy...ya gotta luv it!
It all starts MONDAY!  GET LIT!  

I will be at school at NOON on Monday, 7/22 if you want to come in early and begin copying music for your section.  

NEW for WIND SECTION-LEADERS:  At 2:00pm, Dr. Parker and John will lead a session on teaching marching basics.  Many upperclassmen have suggested such a meeting in the past and I think it will be a great idea to get everyone on the same page and refresh good teaching methods.

At 3:00pm we will have our first LEADERSHIP MEETING.  It would be a good idea to bring a notebook and perhaps a folder to store handouts.  In addition to discussing leadership and good teaching practice, we'll be covering the activities that occur in pre-camp and band camp.  We'll give you a break between 5:00-6:15pm to catch dinner, and then it's time for PRE-CAMP!

PRE-CAMP is 6:30-10:00pm Monday-Thursday.  YOU will do the majority of teaching during this time so the afternoon sessions are very important as they will prepare you for this experience.

I am so excited to see all of you again and to get a brand new season started!  Our goal--as always--will be to make this year the BEST YEAR we have enjoyed at Athens Drive.  Whether the weather is cold or HOT, you're gonna luv this year A LOT!  😊 

See ya soon!
