THIS WEEK IN BAND
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend after Band Camp. To say that camp was successful would be an understatement. Not only was your performance incredible, but you have set yourselves up to be successful because of your focus, maturity, and leadership. Lets keep this going throughout the entire season.
Here is your week at a glance.
Tomorrow we will have rehearsal from 6-9pm. Be prepared to split off into small groups for basics, part 1 music and part 2 music. Please make sure you are at rehearsal at least 10 minutes early so we can start on time.
This Tuesday is the National Night Out. It will start at 5pm. If students can start getting here at 5:30. We will be able to perform some music for the people who come out for the event. After we are finished playing you will have the rest of the night to enjoy the festivities.
On Wednesday there is a Dayton Dragons game. If you are signed up, please make sure you are there by 5pm. If you would like to sign up here is the link to the sign-up genius.

If you are not working the game, there is an opportunity to watch a few Drum Corps at Soaring Sounds in Centerville. Tickets are $25-$40. You can find all the information at this website.
Lineup, times, venue and ticket info for the Soaring Sounds
This is professional marching band at its finest.
We will have rehearsal out on the field the entire time. Reviewing sets from part 1 and finishing the rest of part 1 drill. Please make sure you are there early so we can start on time!
Friday, Saturday, & Sunday:
This weekend we do have Dragons Games. So far there is only one person signed up for Friday and Saturday and nobody signed up for Sunday. These games are huge fundraisers so that we can bring in the kind of instructors that have for band camp, for the season, and a big part of how we are able to afford transportation for games and competitions.
Please consider signing up for a game! Thank you in advance.
We had a fantastic week this past week. Please do not forget that determination and drive that you had. Continue to push because this season has only just begun. I look forward to seeing everyone, well rested and ready to continue to create a fantastic show.
See you all tomorrow!
Mr. Alex Lindon
Walter E. Stebbins High School Director of Bands
Another reminder is to make sure that you are getting your band fees in. These fees have an enormous impact on the band season as well as band camp. It is the entire reason that we can have such a fun and exciting year. If you need to set up a payment plan, please contact our treasurer at email@example.com
School Concession Stand
Another big fundraiser for the Music Boosters is the school concession stand. This stand is run during the school Volleyball, Wrestling and Basketball games. These games start at 4:30 pm and wrestling varies a bit. There are anywhere from 1-4 events a week. It takes about 30 mins to get things prepped (1 hour if you serve Mac and cheese and to warm the bag of nacho cheese). We usually get out at night 9-9:30.
We need a few parents who can help manage this stand. If you are interested at all and would like more information, please contact myself or our booster president at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are available, please sign up for these games. Not only will they help with band fees, but this is the biggest fundraiser of the ENTIRE YEAR. Most of our profits for the music program come from this fundraiser. Music Program Fees will go up if we can not support the Dayton Dragons Concessions Stand. In 2021 we received $25,000 in funds from working the Dayton Dragons Stand, which is what enables Stebbins to have a music program at the level that we all love! Please everyone do your part to help continue our group's tradition and lets get these Dayton Dragons signups filled.
Here are the dates for the Dragons games.
July: 7/22, 7/23, 7/24
August: 8/3, 8/5, 8/6, 8/7, 8/10, 8/12, 8/13, 8/14, 8/31
September: 9/2, 9/3, 9/4
We need more people to help. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
