Congratulations ORHS War Eagle Band!
We are about to complete an AMAZING June Camp. We are so excited at the early excitement and progress that the 2015-2016 ORHS band is making. The “new” Freshman class has done an outstanding job of learning a lot of information in a very short time. The upperclassmen are proving to be a strong group of leaders. Having said that we are predicting and absolutely INCREDIBLE year!
Here are a few final thoughts before we officially break for summer:
#1- Be sure that you get your child’s physical done and the district form completed before August 1. You can obtain the necessary form by going to: http://athletics.conroeisd.net/Pre_ParticipationForm.pdf
You may bring your form on August 1 to turn in. YOU MUST HAVE THIS FORM COMPLETED IN ORDER TO PRACTICE IN AUGUST!!!!!!!!!
#2- Band Hall will be open on Tuesdays, June 16, June 23 and June 30 from 9am to noon if you
want to work on your summer band assignment. Contact your section leader for specifics
#3- July Camp for select sections:
– Sunday/Monday July 19/20 Student Leadership Camp in New Braunfels
– July 29 – August 1 – Percussion and Color Guard Camp 9am – 4pm
#4- August Camp (see schedule that is attached)
We are back on August 1 from 9am – 2pm ( all band students will have their summer music
audition this day) Remember it is all of the opener music for memory!
That is all….we will periodically be checking emails throughout the summer. And I will be sending out our First email of year in late July so be looking for that.
On behalf of the ORHS band staff we would like to wish everyone a happy, restful and fun summer! Please take the time to be with your family and friends. Enjoy your time off…..safe traveling for those taking vacation time (bring us back a postcard) and maybe even practice a little!
