FRESHMAN Orientation – On August 9th, all band freshman will attend the GRC Freshman Academy orientation session. Students will be dismissed from band at 11am to get cleaned up and eat. At 11:30, they will attend orientation until 2pm. All band students will attend the 11:30 session, even if they are supposed to be in the first group. This has already been worked out with the freshman teachers.

Last, it is very common for students to be nervous about band camp or even get cold feet about participating. This is normal. Put your kid in the car and get them to band – We will take care of them!
