Band Camp Reminders

All payments must be submitted by the start of pre-camp. Medical forms must be turned in to Mr Grom by the first practice attended. Students who have not been fitted for uniform and/or shoes please see Mr. Grom.
Parents, please remember the parent orientation on Sunday, August 12th at 1:00 pm. It’s a good opportunity to meet the other parents and learn how you can help the students through the year.
 If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact Mr. Grom at:  330-861-9491 (cell) 330-794-4132 (work)
Band camp is one of the most important weeks of the marching band season. We learn our show, develop our marching and playing skills and, most importantly, get to know one another.
Although camp is at Ellet, students and staff are to be isolated during the day and so we ask there be no visitors. We all need to learn to rely on each other and focus on performing together.
