    Hello, everyone!
    Look for the email sent, with everything you need to know about this year's band camp (taking place from August 19 through August 25). Please read it over, have your Marching Dodger read it over, and then have them read it over again!
    There are a few action items included in the packet:
    1. If you would like to order lunches, your form and payment must be submitted by August 9. Complete details are on the last sheet of the packet.
    2. Each section is responsible for fruit or dessert to accompany lunch on one of the full band camp days (August 22 through August 25). The date/food assignments are in the packet.
    3. Please block off the evening of August 18 (the night before band camp) for our fall restaurant fundraiser at Romanelli's.
    4. We'll be having our first parent caucus of the year on Thursday, August 22 at 8 pm (followed by an Ice Cream Social).
    5. We tentatively will be having a friends-and-family performance on the last night of band camp, Sunday, August 25. This will be followed with cake to celebrate the end of band camp.
    6. Read through the list of essentials (bug spray, sunscreen, etc,) For those students opting to use the dot book app, please bring a fully charged battery bank to each rehearsal and whatever cable the device requires for charging. Without a charged device, you won't be able to use the dot book app.
    Please let us know if you have any questions. We'll be sending out sign-up geniuses in the coming week for uniform fittings and band camp volunteering. 
    Thank you!
    We have a few volunteer tasks for band camp, and a sign-up genius will be going out. 
    We are in need of three or four parents that can assist with uniform fittings and minor alterations. We have a seamstress for major alterations, so even if you only have light sewing skills, your assistance is greatly appreciated. This is relatively low impact volunteer work that includes pre-band camp fittings and a couple of times during the year when we get the uniforms dry cleaned and back onto hangers.
    If you are able to assist, please email Mike Futter at michaelsfutter@mac.com. Thank you so much, in advance, for your help. This task can be a big job, but with a couple of additional people, it can become much more manageable. 
    Please let us know if you have any questions. Have a great week!
