The 2019 Band Camp Newsletter, available here, has a handy Packing List on page 7. (Late breaking news, Wittenberg has confirmed that the pool will be open and available for our use - so pack that suit and towel!) While you're reading the Newsletter, you might also want to stop by page 8 and review Camp Rules and Expectations with your student. Lots of other helpful camp info contained within those pages as well. Check it out!
AND SO IT BEGINS!
Hard to believe, but it's time to kick off the 2019-20 season of the Pride of Grandview Heights, the GHHS Marching Band. Daily pre camp rehearsals begin on Mon July 15, and the students head off to Band Camp on Sunday, July 21. For more details, check the blog or Band Camp pages of this web site. Welcome back, Bobcats!
IT'S DECAL DRIVE TIME!
Decal Drive this year is on Sunday, July 28. This is the largest fundraiser for the band program. Funds raised benefit all Grandview Heights band students with reduced camp costs, instruments & repairs, uniform dry cleaning, music rights, and much more.
Many, many parent volunteers are needed. Please visit the sigunupgenius to help out.
The Decal Drive is mandatory for all GHHS Marching Band members. Student groups ride in vehicles driven by parents to designated routes and collect donations in exchange for a window cling Decal. If residents aren't home, students leave a donation request and envelope in their door.
Students should plan to check in at 5:45pm at Edison Commons. Wear summer uniforms (navy shorts and white pollo) with sneakers. Students do NOT have to wear marching shoes, but no flip flops, please. Pizza will be provided before the students head out, and they will be done by 8:00pm.

Interested in donating to the Grandview Heights Band program?
Running a band program is an expensive endeavor. The Band Parents Association works all year to raise money to support Grandview Heights band students in grades 5-12. The funds are used to subsidize the cost of high school band camp, purchase uniforms and instruments, and fund scholarships, among any other things. Want to help?
