New Marching Documents Added

Posted by Mr. H on Jul 30, 2003 - 04:56 AM  •  Filed under: highschool
Today, I have added two documents to the PDF Documents area of the Downloads section. These documents are long explanations of how to march and how to figure out where one should go on the field. They are very exhaustive and intended mainly for those that will instruct other students (e.g. Section leader, adult staff, etc.) but I place them here so that anyone who is interested can check them out at their leisure. Enjoy. :-) (They are called Marching Tech Document and Drill Tech Document).

Camp Departure Discrepancy Explained

Posted by Mr. H on Jul 22, 2003 - 02:40 PM  •  Filed under: highschool
There is a discrepancy in the information that was sent home to High School Band members over the course of the last year. You may have caught it - I just did today.

In the registration packet for camp it said that we would be leaving school on Sunday, August 3 at 1:00 PM.

In the most recent letter and almost all other communication I stated that we would depart from the school on Sunday, August 3 at 12:00 Noon.

Confusion is likely and understandable. So, this is the final word:


Sorry for any confusion!
