Weekly update: 8/19-8/23

Please take a moment to review next week’s schedule; between Kennywood and the first game there may be questions. As I mentioned before, if you ever have any questions, please email me.

Monday – Band Camp

  • 3-9 PM @ HS
  • Students will receive their two show shirts at practice; they are to wear one to Kennywood on Tuesday
  • Hoagie Pick Up: HS Cafeteria between 3-5 PM
  • We will have the 2nd of the three mandatory meetings: 7:30 PM in the HS auditorium – all parents must attend one of these meetings.

Tuesday – Kennywood Day

Report Time – 8:45 AM @ HS

Students and chaperones are to wear the show shirt that they received on Monday. Students and chaperones do not need to purchase a ticket. 

  • To help organize, students should bring two bags: one bag for things they need to carry throughout the park during the day; they will need money for lunch.  The other small bag they will leave on the bus.  It needs to have the blue Mars Band shirts (please do not wear the PIMBA Champ shirt), khaki shorts, white socks, and tennis shoes.  Students will have time to change after dinner
  • The Boosters will supply dinner to the students: hoagies, chips, and a bottle of water. We will not have any other food choicesIf your student needs to eat something else they will need to pack or bring money to purchase dinner
  • It is helpful if students have a portable charger; many phones die throughout the day and we will use Remind to communicate with them – all parents and students should be on Remind
  • Parents that are not chaperoning throughout the day – you will need to purchase a ticket to come into the park.

  • Students will be transported back to the HS after the game – please plan to pick up your student at the HS, not at the stadium
  • Chaperones and concession workers – please pick up your lanyard behind the HS.  Lisa Kumpfmiller will be there to distribute
