Band Camp is going great! The band has already set the drill and music for the first football piece, 25 or 6 to 4 (Chicago) and they’re sounding awesome. They’ll be working on the dance feature, Free Ride (Edgar Winters Group) today to wrap up a great first week.
Be sure to thank everyone who works to make this a success! Hospitality has provided watermelons, Chaperones has ensured we have parent helpers at all times, and Uniforms has gotten everyone fitted with a uniform for the year. Our Secretary has worked to make sure everyone is in Charms and their paperwork is current and our Notary has been available several times to notarize required forms. Of course, we also rely on numerous parents. Remember all of these are volunteers!
And don’t forget that our band directors, staff members, and the kids all provide the hard work and talent to make the magic happen!
This is going to be a great year!
The BJHS Band Spirit Store is now open for business at https://bjhsbandstore.com/product-category/clothing/!
The Spirit Store has Band Camp section shorts, tee shirts, polos, and more. The store has shirts for the regular band, Color Guard, Dance Team, and Drumline too, so there is something for everyone. (Some parts of the store are still under construction, but we wanted to open up so students can start getting their Band Camp Shorts and Spirit Wear.)
Remember that the band program general fund gets a share of everything purchased at the Spirit Store, so everyone in the band benefits.
Just place your order online. You’ll receive a confirmation when the order is made and you’ll be notified by e-mail when your order is ready to be picked up at 5 Boys @ 151 Hughes Rd, Suite C, just down Hughes Rd from BJHS.
If you have any questions or suggestion for additional products, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
