Band Camp Information

Parents and Students,

I hope you all are having a great summer break.  This year is going to be a great year for our FHS Marching Jaguars! I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about the schedule for band camp. 

July 25th- July 28th PRE CAMP
- Guard, Percussion, Student Leaders and First Year Marchers 8am-3pm
- ALL STUDENTS 1pm-3pm

July 31st - August 4th BAND CAMP WEEK 1
- ALL STUDENTS 8am-6pm

August 7th- August 11th BAND CAMP WEEK 2
- ALL STUDENTS 8am-8pm

All students will be rehearsing Mondays.Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3pm-6pm Starting August 10th until the end of marching season. 

All students should bring a bag lunch each day.  The band boosters will be providing dinner the week of August 7th. No student will be allowed to leave campus for lunch or dinner. 

There will be a band parent meeting on Tuesday, August 1 at 6:00 PM in the band room. This will be your chance to learn about the marching season, fundraising, band dues, and ways to volunteer. 

In preparation of band camp, the boosters need your help. The band students will consume hundreds of bottles of water and sports drinks because it is always HOT during camp. Please start asking for donations from local businesses or purchase items when on sale. Donations can be dropped off in the band room starting the first day of band camp. We will take donations during all 3 weeks of camp. We currently have 80 band members on the roster. 

Thank you for supporting the Forestview band program! If you have any questions please email Mr. Gibson at njgibson@gaston.k12.nc.us

Graduation June 10th

Graduation June 10th

WE WILL NOT BE REHEARSING ON JUNE 9th 

Graduation is mandatory of all band members.  

All band students are to report to the band room at 8am to get their instrument and head straight to the stadium for the performance. 
The graduation ceremony starts at 9am and typically lasts an hour. 

The graduation performance is half of the final exam grade.  If a student is not there they will receive a maximum score of 50% on the Final exam.  I have spoken to some students who were responsible and let me know of any conflicts in advance. If there is a conflict with being at graduation a note will be required on why the student will be absent.  

All current band students in grade 9-11 have to score a 70% or higher on their final exam to come to the band camps over the summer and be in the class next school year. 

If you have any questions please email Mr. Gibson. njgibson@gaston.k12.nc.us
