  • Hair braiders - there will be a hair braiding class on Tuesday, August 15 from 6:15 - 7:15 pm in the band room.  Before each performance and competition, those marchers with long hair must have it braided a certain way.  Come learn how to do this.  It's really not hard and is a great way to get to know the kids!
  • Our first football game performance will be on Friday, August 18.  There are many ways to volunteer - on the field and off.  You can see all areas & sign up here: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?s=hlndazhsb&v=3589642.  If you sign up to help with anything DURING the game, you will get into the game for free!  Even if you don't sign up to help before or during the game, plan on attending to support not only our awesome band but our football team as well - GO HAWKS!
  • Mini-camp will be on Saturday, August 19.  To sign up to help (pretty much same as during band camp), click here: https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?s=hlndazhsb&v=3589645
    • We are also asking for some fruit and ice to be donated at the start of mini-camp.  Our ice maker is wonderful but with the football game the night before, we aren't sure it will be able to make enough overnight.  Just want to have some extra bags on hand.  To sign up for any of these items, click here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/70A0E45A5A82B0-minicamp

Have a wonderful week!
