WONDERFUL KICKOFF TO OUR 2022 MARCHING BAND SEASON DURING MINI BAND CAMP!

We couldn’t be more excited for the beginning of this year’s marching band season!  Mini Band Camp was a productive and fun start to what is certain to be an incredible adventure ahead this year.  The students worked hard throughout the week and it was fun to see all the progress they made in just a few short days during the parent preview performance.  We are also grateful that we were able to bring back the band socials this year so the kids could spend a little time with old friends and make some new ones early on in the season.  We hope you enjoy your time off this summer and look forward to seeing the percussionists and guard later in June and everyone else in July.

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE SHOW REVEAL AND VOLUNTEER FAIR FRIDAY NIGHT!

Thank you to all who were able to join us for the 2022 show reveal and volunteer fair.  Our students had a busy week kicking off the new season.  It was great to see so many familiar faces and we welcome the new additions to the Mason Band family.   Thank you to our committee chairs for sharing information about how they support the band.  For those who were not able to come out to the volunteer fair, you can learn more by contacting our chairpersons for information about their committee.

MARCHING BAND REGISTRATION NEXT STEPS

Important Upcoming Dates for Marching Band Registration:

Past Due

Physicals must be current in Final Forms 

  • Physicals are considered ‘current’ 13 months post exam date. This allows 1 month extra given many insurances require 12 months minimum between appointments 
  • If your student had a physical in the last year, you can download the form from Final Forms and have their doctor fill it out based on their prior appointment.
  • New appointments will be needed for anyone who hasn’t had a physical in the last year. If you need to schedule quickly, many local clinics such as Dayton Children's Express Mason and CVS Minute Clinic offer same day appointments.
