Band Camp Kickoff Picnic!

EVERYONE IS INVITED – all Band Families and Parents/siblings!  On Sunday, July 31st, we’ll kick off our week of full band camp with a Picnic for all of our Band Family! This will be the first time we’ve had the picnic portion of the evening since pre-covid… Hooray!!!

  • The picnic is 5-6 PM at BVN, North of the building (outdoors), in the area between the Baseball field and east football field (the FB field with the track/adjacent to Lamar).  Bring lawn chairs and come enjoy the dinner and meet other band families!
  • at 6 PM, the Marching Mustangs will have their first full ensemble rehearsal of camp, on the east FB Field.  This rehearsal was initially scheduled 6-8 PM, but we’ll finish by or before 7:30 PM.
  • PARENTS:  Also at 6 PM, we invite all of our 1st time band parents to spend a little time with our Mustang Band Booster Parent board.  Our Band Parents are WONDERFUL, and just like the amazing community of students in the band, the band parents are also an outstanding and supportive group.  This is not really a “meeting” – but a more relaxed time to meet our parent leaders and get to know a little about our band and the wonderful people in our extended band family.
  • To pull of this picnic, we’re asking for donations from lots of band families!  CLICK HERE to sign up.
    • Families of Senior Band Members:  Bring hamburger and/or hot dog buns, or chips.
    • Families of Junior Band Members:  Bring hamburger/hot dog dressings (ketchup, mustard, relish, etc).
    • Families of Sophomore Band Members:  Bring a side dish.  Thank you for remembering that we have students with nut allergies, so please avoid nuts.
    • Families of Freshman Band Members:  bring desserts.  Definitely no nuts here (if you’re getting cookies – chocolate chip is the way to go!).   There are also LOTS of nut-safe/nut-free cookies and similar out there.  If you plan to bring those, please indicate it on the sign-up.
