Student Leadership Camp and Special Drumline Performance
Our Student Leadership Team is a crucial part of our marching band at OG! These students have applied for this position and have been accepted based on their past performance ability as well as potential as leaders. During this part of camp, these students will be discussing skills, tips/tricks, etc. at how to become leaders as well as learn about this season’s sections and will create a unified plan for the camp and season. It is critical that each member of the leadership team be present to make sure they receive this training and make sure their voice is heard for the season.
On Thursday, August 3rd, the entire Administration of Davidson County Schools (County Office personnel as well as all school Principals and Assistant Principals) will be finishing their final day of training. As this will have been held at OGHS, we have been asked to provide some musical entertainment for their final meeting. I would love to have all of our drumline members and some other selected students make this happen for our school leadership. An email has been sent to those involved and it is my hope that we can provide some great music for them!
Camp Registration, Info Meeting & Reception
Beginning at 5:30pm on August, 6th (Sunday) we will have our staggered registration, followed by a full info session in the auditorium and a brief reception afterwards in our cafeteria. During registration, any fees may be paid, items may be ordered and those that have selected the specific plan may sign-up for volunteer opportunities. The full information session will have the introduction of staff, student leadership, Band Booster Board Members and we will be sharing tons of information about camp as well as the season. Bring questions! Following the meeting, we will have a reception/season kick-off celebration in the cafeteria. Cake squares, snacks and drinks will be available and this will be a great time for everyone to meet and get to
know each other!
