Band Fees Due!

Half of the band fee is due Thursday July 9, 2015. The final installment of the fee is due the first day of Band Camp Monday July 27, 2015.

Band Fees can be paid in cash, check, money order, & CREDIT CARD.  A small fee of 2.8% will be assessed each time a credit card is used to pay any payments due to the band. 

Band Camp

Band Camp will be held the week of July 27th. All Marching Band members are to wear appropriate clothing and hats.  Lunch will be provided by the Band Parent Association, and the menu will be posted in the band room.  We do ask that all band members provide a water cooler for when we are working on the band field.  All band members should also eat breakfast prior to reporting to camp each morning.

Medical Forms

Every student and parent who will be travelling with the G.W. Band during the 2015-2016 school year must complete a Band Medical Form, regardless of whether they are a returning or new member.  These forms must be completed, notarized by a Notary Public, and turned in to the Band Office by July 31, 2015.

You can find a Notary Public at any bank/credit union or law office.  We will also arrange to have a Notary available at the end of most July practices (Including Band Camp).

**This is very important because we can not take care of your child if something happens to them while they are with the band on a trip.  This form also serves as the permission slip to travel with the band the entire school year.**
