We are so excited about the start of our 2022 marching band season here at Houston High School. We can’t wait to see everyone at our annual Ice Cream Social on Sunday (7/24) at 3:00pm, this is a great opportunity to meet folks and get a sneak peak of this year’s band.
We have a lot of important information for you so please read this message carefully.
Band Camp is Monday-Friday (July 25-29) from 8:00am-4:30pm. It is MANDATORY for all students wishing to take part in band at HHS.
All band members are REQUIRED to bring a half gallon (or bigger) water jug with them to camp every day. Something like this one from Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Reusable-Insulated-Water-Jug-Leakproof-Portable-85oz-Spout-Half-Gallon-Bottle-Camping-Picnics-Hiking-Sky-Blue/768427406
Lunch is provided by the Band Booster Hospitality Committee every day. If you have a food allergy or are a vegetarian, and you have not contacted Amy Eoff (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Holly Clark (email@example.com) please do so IMMEDIATELY.
Volunteers and Supplies are needed! Working at Band Camp is tons of fun and a great way to meet everyone. If it doesn’t work with your schedule, we also need supplies throughout the week to help keep the kids cool and well-fed. Please click on these sign up genius links to help out!

Section Leaders and upper class students need to make sure that your section has a tent ready to set up Monday morning. All students should bring camp chairs or something to sit on during breaks. Parents can provide extra water or even popsicles for the students in the section. Check with your section leader to be sure these items are covered.
Students who need marching instruments (mellophones, baritones, sousaphones, etc.) will be assigned those instruments on Monday morning by their section leader. Be sure to arrive no later than 7:40 if you need one of these instruments.
The weather is going to be very very hot next week. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water throughout the weekend and into next week. STUDENTS MUST WEAR HATS, T-SHIRTS, and SHORTS as well as TENNIS SHOES AT ALL TIMES. Bring sunscreen to apply multiple times throughout the day each day. Sunglasses are also highly encouraged.
Students must complete and print a signed Parent Consent and Emergency Contact Form with them on Monday morning. Give this to Mr. Taylor or Dr. Hagan when you arrive. The form can be found here: https://www.thehoustonband.com/forms
We are going to have a fantastic year here at The Houston Band!
