Dear G-A Band Parents and Students, I hope you are having a great summer! I am excited to see everyone LATER THIS WEEK for the start of Band Camp 2023! We have a great year in store and I am eager to get started. Here are some important reminders for Band Camp. Dates: Thursday, July 27 - Leadership Training for section leaders and drum majors Friday, July 28 - Freshman Orientation for new members with section leaders and drum majors (9am-5pm) and Percussion Sectional (1-5pm) Saturday, July 29 - Full Band (9am-5pm) Monday-Friday, July 31-August 4 - Full Band (9am-5pm) Report Time: Plan to arrive in the band room each day between 8:30-8:45 so you are ready to begin at 9:00! Go to the outside band room door, located on the side of the building by the football practice field (look for the band trailer). Stop at the check-in table each day when you arrive. Lunch: Our lunch break is noon to 1pm each day. Plan to bring a lunch to eat in the cafeteria OR you may eat off campus. What to Bring: Instrument Music, Flip Folder, Lyre (If you ordered a flip folder and/or lyre, you will get it at band camp.) Pencils, Highlighters for marking music and drill Lunch, Refillable Water Bottle Sunscreen What to Wear: Comfortable athletic clothing (t-shirt, shorts). All attire must be school appropriate! Tennis shoes or Drillmaster shoes and socks. No flip-flops, sandals, crocs, etc. Hat, Sunglasses Attendance Policy: All students in high school band are required to attend band camp in preparation for the upcoming school year. A typical day of band camp includes learning music, basic marching fundamentals, and drill for the pregame and halftime shows (plus plenty of fun with friends). It is critical for students to be present for this instruction. The learning that takes place at camp prepares us for the start of the school year and cannot be replicated later. Please note that work conflicts, babysitting, and driver's training are not excused absences. Students should clear the dates for band camp with their summer jobs as soon as possible! If you need a ride to or from band camp, make arrangements with a friend or contact Mr. Walker. In the event of illness during band camp, a parent or guardian should contact Mr. Walker as soon as possible. As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to the start of a great year! Go Rams! Mr. Walker

G-A Families, As you may have heard, today there was an incident in which one of our G-A buses was rear-ended by another, while trying to exit our MS parking lot to drive students home at the end of the day. Unfortunately, a parent vehicle did not yield for the bus, and our driver had to slam on its brakes to avoid hitting the parent vehicle. That caused the bus behind it to run into the rear end of the other bus. First responders did arrive. All students were removed from the buses and taken into our gym where students could be checked out for any injuries. Five students were checked for injuries by first responders, but all went home. Only the bus driver of the first bus will seek medical attention. We appreciate the middle school staff, our drivers, and our local responders for being so quick and efficient in ensuring everyone's safety prior to taking our children home for the day.
