With less than two weeks until the start of school, the Chemic Marching Band has kicked it up several notches with the start of band camp! A lot of information has been passed along to parents over the past few weeks. If parents have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the wonderful music reps. They put in countless volunteer hours and can generally answer your questions. If they don’t know, they’ll ask the director or one of the assistants. The last thing we want is to overwhelm you with information! That said… here’s some more information
