We hope this letter finds you enjoying a wonderful summer. This is a very exciting time for us as we are getting ready for this year’s marching band show.
The primary purpose of this letter is to inform you about the camps that are coming up in the month of July. Please place this information on your calendars at home to avoid conflicts with rehearsals and performances. All rehearsals will take place at the Coffee High School Band Room.
The CHS Band Camps are designed to prepare the Band, Percussion, and Color Guard for fall athletic and competitive field shows. Our camps are also designed to train students in the skills of musical and visual performance, including outdoor Drum Corps-style precision marching.
Please understand that THESE CAMPS ARE MANDATORY for all students who wish to participate in fall performances. Students are expected to attend every day for the six days of camp. If you have a conflict that requires special consideration, please contact Mr. Myers via email at email@example.com or call the band room at (912) 389-6584. Email is more likely to be received quickly. You may also text in an emergency to (912) 393-5662.
The football band fee for this year is $150 per student. A portion of this fee will go directly into the band Booster Uniform Account for the next time we have to purchase new uniforms. This fee may be paid on the first day of camp. Please make checks out to Coffee High Band. This will cover music arrangements, instructional equipment and materials, non-school instructors’ salaries, uniform rental and cleaning costs, a flip folder, a band notebook, this year’s band t-shirt, and your band windbreaker (for first time members). We will gladly work with anyone on a payment plan; however that needs to be something discussed before camp begins.$150.00
