Marching Band Camp 2016 information

We are just a couple of weeks away from the start of our journey together. We, the staff, are so excited to get to work with your kids this year.

Below you will find the following:

  • an updated camp schedule
  • an updated band schedule (summer and fall)
  • the fee structure and worksheet (you will need to print this off and send it with your son/daughter to band camp on Tuesday, July 26th, with a check made payable to LSWHS or cash)

Please notice that we changed the time of the performance/meeting to 4:30pm on Friday, July 29th. We will have much to do and show you that afternoon. Hope you can get off work a little early and join us.

All new members (regardless of grade level) should report to Rookie Camp on Friday, July 22nd at 8am in the band room at LSWHS. We will be finished 12pm.

All other members of the band should report to Camp on Monday, July 25th, at 8am in the PAC at LSWHS. We will be finished at 4pm each day that week.

Drumline Camp 2016

If you have a son/daughter in the drumline at LSWHS, our Drumline Camp is coming in just 9 days!
Just for some points of clarification, there are two sub-sections within the drumline, the "battery" (snare, tenors, bass) and the "frontline" (mallets, piano, auxiliary percussion).

Battery will start camp on Sunday, July 17th at LSHS at noon. You will need to check in by 11:45am, so maybe you can go to church early that day 🙂
Below, you will see a schedule of events for this 2-day camp put on by the Blue Devils (a drum and bugle corps) In addition, there are two forms toward the end of the packet that you need to have filled out and brought to registration before the first session begins. You do NOT need to fill out the registration form, as I have already done so for you.
Please review the schedule so you are aware of time commitments.
This camp will conclude Monday night with a trip to see the DCI competition in Warrensburg. Transportation will be provided by the school district (stay tuned for more information about this)
The battery will then continue it’s camp at LSWHS on Tuesday morning from 8am to 3pm and continue through Friday. There will be a short lunch break, but you are to bring your lunch. NO STUDENTS are permitted to leave campus for lunch.

The attachment below is ONLY for battery members.

Frontline will start camp on Monday, July 18th at LSWHS from 8am to 3pm and continue through Friday. There will be a short lunch break, but you are to bring your lunch. NO STUDENTS are permitted to leave campus for lunch.
In addition, students will be attending the DCI competition in Warrensburg on Monday evening. Transportation will be provided by the school district (stay tuned for more information about this)

Fees for this camp will be collected during band camp the following week, so no need to bring money.


Summer 2013

Greetings and welcome to the 2013 Titan Pride Marching Band,

Mr. Harrel and I are in full swing of preparing for this summer and fall. Here are some items of interest to you as you enter into next year.

Marching Band Camp
All members of the band (woodwinds, brass, percussion, colorguard) are to be at camp at the end of July. Please make sure it is in your calendar now. We have changed the way we will do camp this year. We have gone with a more intense schedule per day, but less days. So, if you had already put these dates in your calendar, please read THIS attachment and make necessary adjustments. It is now July 29 to Aug 1.
2013 Marching Band Camp

Fall Marching Band Schedule
The dates on this calendar include all REQUIRED events outside of the school day. The student’s grade is determined, in the fall, primarily by attendance at these events. Please place them in your calendar now. You’ll notice we have scheduled five Saturday competitions. We will NOT be going to all five. We are currently working out some scheduling conflicts before we decide which one’s we will attend, but wanted you to have all five on your calendar as possibilities.

Drumline Camp
This camp is for the full drumline (battery and frontline). This is an intense week of working on fundamental development, exercises, show music, and comradery. Please make sure your student is in attendance if they play a percussion instrument.
2013 Drumline Summer Schedule

Hosting the Bluecoats Drum Corps
On July 11th, from 6am to 6pm, we will be hosting a DCI (Drum Corps International) group called the Bluecoats. This is a great oppotunity for our kids and families to observe the intensity and dedication it takes to be a successful marching band. We expect all students to attend and observe at least two hours of rehearsal on that day in Titan Stadium. More information to come at a later date.

Physical Exams
ALL members of the marching band MUST have a physical exam done before July 15th (drumline) and July 29th (woodwinds and brass). The physical exam MUST have been performed after February 1st, 2013 and MUST be on the attached form. This can be handed in to the front office at LSW anytime this summer. Please make sure this is done before your son/daughter’s first day of camp, it is NECESSARY!

If I don’t get to speak to you until camp, have a great summer!
