Things We Like
Great things about Summer Band Camp include doing amazing things as a team. Truck Crew leadership and Band Leadership scraped off the logos prepping our truck for a new wrap - thanks to Owenn Skulski (Junior) and Les Skulski (truck dad) for outstanding efforts., HHS Alum Terry Ellington from Magic Touch Detail came to polish it off... and our kids ate in style last week thanks to a sponsorship from Outback Steakhouse. It takes a village, Friends, and ours is strong!

Band Classes / Schedules
As we have told the marching band students, mistakes on the first draft of your schedule that you picked up this week are very common. Although your counselors aren't responsible for the mistakes, they are terrific about getting things right. I know this can be a little frustrating and stressful especially for the 9th graders. It may take a little time though - even into the first week of school for some people.
The band class schedule for the year is the same as it has been the past couple of years. If your band class is incorrect, please fill out a schedule mistake form at the school and put it in the proper basket. If you have questions and are not sure if your schedule is correct or not, ask a leadership team member or a director. Your class assignment is dictated by what you signed up for (Marching Band/Concert only and your audition (Symphonic band or wind Ensemble). Those results are posted in the band room.
All 9th graders in marching band have been given opportunities during lunch for an older band member to walk them through their schedule so they know where they are going.
A Day Classes
1A - Symphonic Band Percussion (except for Grant, DJ, Aiden, and Dallas)
2A - Symphonic Band Winds (Woodwinds and Brass and also including Grant, DJ, Aiden, and Dallas)

Band Preview Show and Uniform
Our marching band preview show will be Friday, August 5th in the evening. Exact Time and location are TBA. We originally had Milton Frank Stadium booked, but because of some renovations, we may have our preview show on our field at HHS.
Students wear their band polo, khaki shorts with belt, athletic shoes and short socks for the preview show and our first couple of football games. If you do not own a pair of khaki shorts, please get some ASAP.
