Dear North Star Band Students and Parents,
Our season started off with a bang for this fall’s production of “Shades of Latin”! After a strong showing at last week’s Marching Band Kick-Off, directors and staff are geared up for our marching band camp in August. Don’t worry if you missed out. If you are receiving this letter, the directors have still included you as a member of the marching band and are looking forward to working with you!
Filling out forms is convenient for students, parents, and directors. Please follow these steps to get your student set up for marching band.
*Colorguard members do not have to do this, but keep reading*
Step 1: Go to your computer, open up your favorite web browser.
Step 2: Have your marching band student(s) nearby and a measuring tape so you can enter proper measurements for uniform.
Step 3: Complete this google doc CLICK HERE
Step 4: Complete the on-screen steps and instructions on or before Form Night. You will NOT be able to pay on the site, record your total here $_____. Either bring this amount to form night by check (written to North Star High School) or cash. If you are eligible for a fee waiver through the district, you can choose to print a form directly from the site. Please bring this form to form night. (*LPS Fee Waiver Form)
Step 5: After you fill out the online google form, return to the page and complete the LNS Band Medical Release Form (Download PDF Here) and Field Trip Permission Form (Download PDF Here). Please fill out (they are typeable) and bring these forms (and the fee waiver-if applicable) with you to Form Collection Night on Thursday, July 26 at 7pm. This meeting will start in the auditorium and end in the band room where we will pass out instruments, music, and lockers. This allows students to be fully prepared for camp.
**If you are unable to attend that evening please mail the forms/payment to Mr. Albright at North Star High School prior to July 26. It is crucial for the success of the band to have all forms in prior to band camp for organization purposes!
Freshman members and leadership will report to camp on Friday, July 27 from 1-4pm and all members have camp July 30 - August 3. Hours for Camp will be 8:00 a.m. - noon and 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. each day. Lunch will be provided at no cost on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during band camp by our Performing Arts Booster parents. Students will organize lunch for Wednesday, August 3.
Band Camp Exhibition- Friday, August 3rd at 7:00 p.m. on the marching field, parents, friends and families welcome to come and support!
We will see everyone soon, have a great summer and don’t forget to practice!
