Volunteer Needs:

We are need of immediate volunteers for this week’s away football game and performance dinner. There is a spot for EVERYONE! Our band goal is for each family to get at least 5 volunteer experiences throughout the year and we’d love for you to consider this Friday to be one of those events. If you are not able to donate your time, please consider donating a few items for the performance dinner this week! Please check out the openings for this week at our volunteer link here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c44afa923a5f9ce9-202220


On Saturday, September 10th (THIS SAT) we will be working on further construction of the props from 11:30 - 2:30pm. We will need help with the painting, sawing, dressing, and completion of the props on Saturday. If you are free at all during this time, please consider stopping by to help for a couple of hours! We are excited to get the show completely on the field!

Football Game Day Sheet/Flip Folders:

The game day sheet for this week’s away football game vs. West Forsyth is attached to this email! Please take a moment to go over the events for the day. With the excitement of the day it is easy to miss small details, so I have tried to include all that you may need to know. Pre-Game meal for this game is hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, vegetarian pasta salad, fruit, chips and dessert.

Attire for Winds and Percussion will be the traditional uniform. This includes their WHITE Under Uniform Shirts show shirt, NAVY Under Uniform shorts, and black marching shoes. Colorguard attire will be their Pep uniform.

*Flip Folders for football games are required for winds and percussion students.

Absence/Tardy/Early Departure Form:

We understand that absences, tardies, and early departures will occur throughout the season. We have released our schedule to each family as soon as possible to alleviate the need for a student to miss a rehearsal/performance, however, if the need arises, early communication is essential. Absences that are not an emergency must be recorded 2 weeks in advanced to be considered excused and planned tardies/early departures must have 2 days notice. Completion of the form does not constitute an excused absence. Examples of excused absences would be sickness, COVID-19 quarantines, or COVID related symptoms, deaths, or other pre-discussed events. Unexcused absences will result in students needing to make up the performance experience, or could result in loss of performance opportunities.

Please fill out this form for all absences/tardies/early departures: https://form.jotform.com/Treasurer_Band/cambridge-band-tardyabsence-form
