Upcoming dates and opportunities

Want to be a Steinbrenner Legend for the 2017-2018 school year? Come to auditions May 1-4, 6-8pm in the Martinez Middle School Gym. No experience necessary….just the desire to learn how to dance and toss flags, rifles, and sabres!  Futher info – contact Kathy Thal at ksquared@gte.net

Interested in “beating your own drum”? Or any other percussion instrument? Percussion auditions are May 2nd – 4th from 5 – 7pm in the Steinbrenner High School band room.  Further info – contact Jason Allgair at jason.allgair@sdhc.k12.fl.us

Incoming parent orientation and information meeting will be held on May 23rd at 6pm in the Steinbrenner High School auditorium. Students are not required to attend as it’s exam week, but at this meeting you will receive an overview of the FABULOUS band program, the expectations as well as time for a Q & A session. Great opportunity to get set up for success for the next year!!  Further info – contact Jason Allgair at jason.allgair@sdhc.k12.fl.us

First day – WHAT DO I NEED

It’s the FIRST DAY!!  It’s exciting and crazy, but please don’t forget that we also have our first marching band practice!

NEED TO BRING TO SCHOOL:  instrument, music, practice clothes (either change into or wear), and camelbak.  Practice is from 3:30 to 6:30pm – YOU MUST HAVE A RIDE HOME!  Be hydrated (that means drink lots of water, not coke!) and if you haven’t purchased from Charms, bring a snack for after school.  You will be glad you did!

If you have any questions, ASK!

LET’S GO MWB!

Band Camp drop off / parking

BAND CAMP DROP OFF AND PARKING – WHAT TO DO:

Turn into the front entrance of the school and proceed to the Bus Circle.

If you have already paid for band camp ($60), ALL of your forms are complete (please check the list found in Charms to confirm) AND the health form is notarized, you will simply drive through the designated check-in area, drop off your forms, your student, and 1 case of water (or $10).

If any of those things are incomplete, you will park in the bus circle and come to the registration tent to complete forms / pay for band camp / get health form notarized, and turn in / buy water for $10.

Only staff and parent volunteers may park in the red zone. Students who are driving themselves to band camp may park in the blue areas.

Parent Volunteers: Please report to the Patio/Volunteer HQ on time. This week, we will be serving approximately 700 people each day. Please park in the red zone. If you have any questions before then, contact Ivana Vergara, our volunteer coordinator, before your scheduled time.

Let’s get EXCITED! Band camp is HERE!!! Go MWB!
