As an additional reminder - we have created a google form for the notification of absences. We know we are missing a few students this weekend due to the calendar change. Please use the following form for all absences moving forward:


I will also attach the list below as a PDF to this email if it’s easier to print as a checklist for your packing assistance:

  • Instrument and Accessories
  • Marching Shoes/Black Socks
  • Under Uniform (white shirt and shorts)
  • Cambridge shirt for bus ride on Friday (anything Cambridge is fine, our show shirt is great)
  • Personal Hygiene Items (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, others as needed) Sleepwear
  • “Bus Bag” (include any snacks, homework, games or movies, cell charger, water). Above “bus bag” can double as a show bag on Saturday and a beach bag on Sunday
  • Saturday “bus bag” should have musical items, sunscreen, water bottle, etc.
  • Beachwear for Sunday
  • Sunday “bus bag” should include change of clothes for bus ride, and all other bus items from Friday
  • Pack other clothes lightly as we won’t have much room in the bus bays after loading our uniforms and hat boxes.
  • Under-uniform and uniform will be all that is needed for Saturday - it’s all about the show that day
  • Sunscreen and bug spray will be good to add to the “bus bag” for Saturday and Sunday
  • Pillow for bus is a plus - so is a sweatshirt/jacket
  • Ryan Borger & Katie Groves
