Marching Band Camp starts in another week!! Band camp starts on July 17th and goes until July 28th. We will be providing a snack everyday during camp at 10:00 in the morning. If you would like to volunteer your time please feel free to meet around 9:50 up on the practice field. From set up to tear down the whole process takes no longer than 30 minutes.
If you would like to donate snacks…please feel free to do so!!! We greatly appreciate any donations for the kids!! You can send them with your kids in the morning if you would like….just label that it is for band camp and have your kiddo put it in the band room, and Julie or myself will grab them!! We need goldfish, cheez its, pretzels, animal crackers, grapes, clementines, Popsicles (freeze pops) etc….they will eat anything really!! PLEASE MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS PEANUT FREE!!!!The bulk size items work best, then we can put them in individual baggies (which baggies would be a great donation too…snack size)!!!
Please remember to send your kid with a lunch…as this is just a snack that is provided
I will also be sending out a sign up genius for the pizza party at the end of band camp which will be on Friday July 28th during dinner break…a sign up genius and more info on that to follow.

The FHHS Drumline includes members from all three district high schools, including FHN musicians August Wise, Addy Bradbury, Lizzy Hale, Brooke Kolath, Brian Cannon, Jayden Jaeger, along with instructors and FHN graduates Katie Busby and Mike Cernicek.
Congratulations on this fantastic achievement!
Parents and Students,
I wanted to share some information on some upcoming events.
Friday: Basketball Band will need to meet at 6:45am to get set up for a morning pep rally in the commons. At 8:00am they will be released to set up for our Pep Assembly that begins at 8:30am. The assembly will last about 30 minutes. BBall band has a double header in the evening. I am asking for a 4pm call time so that I can treat them to some pre-game Ice Cream!
Wednesday Feb 15th: The Women’s game as been moved to Pattonville so there is NO BBALL BAND. Parent/teacher conferences will be that evening.
Thursday Feb 16th: On the calendar we have a concert on this day. I had originally planned to continue with this night but do to scheduling and the needs of our ensembles this date will be moved. I will post when I have a replacement date for this event. The event will be a Woodwind Choir, Brass Choir, and Percussion Ensemble concert on the stage. We will then split into two rooms. (WW and Perc) (Brass) We will have the solos and ensembles perform in these rooms to prepare for S&E contest. Depending on the date, It will either help prepare them for the District or the State level contest. If I can’t get a date that is before district, I will personally work with the kids to make sure they understand the process and get the nerves out.
Be sure to join us for the Winter Guard parent performance on this date. I hear there is a surprise in store for me.
Thank you again for your patience with the schedule. Please remember, I am working with a schedule not set by me. I have already begun a working calendar for next year and will have all of next years dates to you before school lets out in May.(Minus opportunities that are added throughout the year.)
More info coming soon.
