Band Camp starts Monday, August 7th from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM. In order for our students to have the most success they need to be prepared. Simple things like eating breakfast and staying hydrated will keep band camp as a fun memory. Be sure to check the “Band Camp Survival Guide” (attached) for what to bring, how to dress, and other helpful hints.
Drill books are due the first day of Band Camp. A drill book is a 1-1.5” binder that will hold all of the materials the students will need for the season (i.e. Drill, Music, Exercises, etc.). The students will need to have the binder and plenty of plastic sheet protectors (at least 50) by the first day of camp. Any questions feel free to contact Mr. Hughes.
BAND CAMP PARENT VOLUNTEERS
PARENTS - We URGENTLY need YOUR help to make our 2017 Band Camp a success.
We need volunteers for the Volunteer/Medical Tent. The CPMC offers volunteers throughout band camp to assist Mr. Hughes with various tasks, water and Gatorade for band members and medical support when needed. If you are in the medical field (RN, LPN, EMT, etc...) we need YOU!! Also, we need parent volunteers even if you don't have any medical experience.

2016 Band T-Shirts - Better late than never
Over the past several months we've heard from many students/parents/guardians that they're disappointed that band shirts for the 2016 season were never printed up. Not only is the shirt a great way to remember the season, but the cost is included in the band membership dues. So we're going to print shirts with the 2016 show design and provide one for every student who was a member of the 2016 band. The art work is taken from the image used on the dog tags that were handed out at the band banquet. Click for more
PARENTS MEET & GREET: Wednesday, July 26th at 6:00 PM, We will have a Meet & Greet outside the band room for all parents wanting to learn more about the CPMC and the Marching Band. This is a great time, especially for parents/guardians new to the band, to talk with seasoned parents of band students, ask questions, understand band camp better and learn what volunteer opportunities you can be involved in. We have a great time and light snacks will be served. Involvement is the only way we can make this busy organization work. Don’t sit back and watch, we need you!
We have band practice every Monday and Wednesday 6 – 9 PM, with the exception of the first 2 weeks in July and then band camp. Make every effort to be at practice. If you cannot attend, please let your section leader know and contact Mr. Hughes either by e-mail or a written note. firstname.lastname@example.org.
