Band Camp This Monday!

Happy Weekend! We start band Camp next Monday, July 24th, starting at 8am until 4pm. Camp runs from July 24th through July 27th and July 31st-August 1st. Please make sure you bring your emergency medical form notarized. YOU MUST HAVE THIS FORM NOTARIZED! Our front office staff has a Notary Public that will notarize for free. You can find the form on our band website under forms.

Make sure you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing: t-shirt, shorts, socks…SNEAKERS ONLY! Also, School Dress Code will apply so if you’re not sure, don’t wear it! Please bring a water jug. We will be in the gym for marching this week and in the band room/fine arts building for afternoon music rehearsals.

Make sure you have your instrument with you. Bring everything you think you’ll need! Percussionists bring any or all sticks/mallets with you. Anyone that will be using school instruments must be prepared to check the instrument out and fill out a county sign-out sheet, getting your parents or guardians to sign the form as well.

Finally, Lunch will be provided by the Boosters! If you have any kind of special dietary needs, please email me right away so we can do our best to handle these requests. With the boosters providing lunch, no one will be leaving campus during campus…NO EXCEPTIONS! If anyone needs to leave campus, it must be cleared with the parents/guardians and myself BEFORE leaving campus.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to email me at RonLaggKHS@Gmail.com. The school email can be iffy so I use the gmail account we have set up for this purpose.

Drum Corps Premier Tonight!

Attention All KHS Band Members! Tonight, the Drum Corps International CORPS PREMIER is at 8:30pm at the Cobb Lakeside Theaters. I plan to try and be there at 7:45 and going in at 8pm so I can get a good seat. Hope as many of you can attend! This is “The Best of the Best” in the marching music arts! Email me if you have any questions; you can check the schedule at the movie theater for cost and expected time it will end!

Guard Clinic Tuesday, 6/20/17 9am-4pm!

The Pride of Kathleen’s very own Inferno colorguard is having another guard clinic tomorrow, June 20th, from 9 AM until 4 PM. The clinic is free to attend and all band and current colorguard members should do their best to be helping to recruit to make our garden larger for next year! Questions? Email me at RonLaggKHS@Gmail.Com.

Thanks!

Schedule Change for this week!!!

ATTENTION!!! We are making a schedule change for this week. The Get Acquainted Rehearsal that was supposed to be on this Thursday, 7/22, has been moved to Tuesday, 07/20. This means that the rehearsal is TOMORROW NIGHT! 6-8:30pm in the band room at KHS, Building 33 which is in the Northwest Corner of the Campus. We are doing this because the Drum Corps International Corps Premier is Thursday evening and I want as many of the kids to go watch this as possible! These groups are considered STATE OF THE ART in the Marching Music Arts. Check your theater listings for times for this Thursday. Any questions, please email: RonLaggKHS@Gmail.Com.

Thanks!

Music Rehearsals for June

Just a subtle reminder that we have our first of two Get Acquainted Rehearsals Saturday, June 10th, from 9am until 12 noon. All old and new members are encouraged to attend! We have all the show music now And I would really like to read through all three pieces, especially the closer. All Leadership please make every effort to be at the band room at 8:30. I know about Gabby, Hunter and Josh. If you’re not going to be there, please email to let me know…not a text message or FB Messenger message!

The second music rehearsal will be Thursday, June 22nd from 6-8:30pm. Remember…it’s highly encouraged to be at at least one of the rehearsals.

Thanks!

Spring Concert!

Awesome concert last night! Thanks to everyone who made it happen! You keep surprising me when I least expect it…imagine the possibilities of the whole band practicing outside of rehearsal. It could be phenomenal and I’d have fewer nightmares! 😉 One more performance and we can start all the fun for next year!

Lakeland Derby Performance This Friday!

The Pride of Kathleen will once again be performing for the Lakeland Derby Festivities this Friday evening in Downtown Lakeland held at Lake Mirror. We will meet at the Lake Mirror Fire House at 6pm. The Band will perform sometime around 7-7:30pm. Once the band is done performing and ALL UNIFORMS and EQUIPMENT have been packed, the band will be dismissed. LEADERSHIP WILL NEED TO MEET BACK AT THE SCHOOL TO UNLOAD THE TRAILER!

Please wear your rehearsal uniforms to the event. IF YOU ARE NOT IN FULL REHEARSAL UNIFORM, YOU WILL NOT BE PERFORMING.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
