Important information from Miss Latham:
I look forward to seeing you all in just a couple of days.
The Saturday band camp check in of past years has been REPLACED by the grade level meetings occurring during the week. That means the only students/parents who need to show up on Saturday are the Freshmen. It also means all students will need to submit any and all remaining band camp paperwork at their scheduled grade level meeting.
Forms can be found here: http://gulllakecs.org/Page/742
Also, the band trailer will be loaded on Friday. All students need to be sure their instrument is at the school on Friday so it can be loaded!
Volunteers are needed to help fit uniforms this week. Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially on Saturday for the freshmen fittings. The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, July 23, 8am to 12pm* Senior Fitting
*Note: The fitting for returning Band Students may not take the entire 4 hrs of pre-camp.

Band camp room assignments have been posted. Per Miss Latham: “We had some issues with the room lists, so please be patient with us. As the website says, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME WITH CHANGES TO ROOMS unless you are not on the list, we will take care of changes at pre-camp next week.”

SPIRIT DAYS! Optional but FUN! Show us your spirit:
-Band camp chaperone meeting is tomorrow, 6:00, at The Crew restaurant at the corner of Sprinkle and Cork St. All confirmed chaperones need to attend this important meeting regarding chaperoning duties and responsibilitie
-Drum line and pit music is now posted on Miss Lathams GLCS website, as well as well as more audio files.
-Time to sign up for concession stand time slots! All parents of band students 6th grade and up are encouraged to volunteer at the concession stand at the football field. This is one of our major fundraisers and there are many time slots to fill during fall sporting events. In addition, parents earn money toward their student’s trip account for every hour worked. The trip fund can be used for band camp and the Disney trip. Gull Lake Band students benefit greatly from the money earned by the concession stand, and its an easy way for busy parents to help support our band program! Please see the “concession stand” document for information on signing up. You may contact Kathleen directly to sign up for time slots.
Here are some details on upcoming band happenings:

A note from Miss Latham:
Wow, Only 20 days until we leave for band camp. The music for all brass and woodwinds is on my website. PLEASE check my website for updates to my Google Calendar (I will be able to see on my homepage how many visitors check my site out : ) and other information. You will need to find your appropriate part ie. 1st, 2nd or 3rd, on the “marching Parts” document then go to Wicked part 1, 2, 3 and 4 to find your music. Yes, the files include scores as well as all individual parts, so please do this carefully. If you would like to hear the music, I have included mp3 tracks of our arrangements. NOW IT IS TIME TO PRACTICE!!!!!!
July 4th Water Bearers Needed!!
The Richland 4th of July parade is fast approaching!
On July 3rd there is parade practice from 9:00-12:00 at the high school.
On July 4th students are to meet at the football field at 9:30 AM. The parade starts at 11:00. All incoming Freshman through alumni are invited to participate in this parade. We would love to have parents walk the parade route with the band as well and help keep the marchers hydrated.
Uniform for the parade will be a plain white t-shirt, dark athletic shorts (black is preferred) athletic shoes and socks. Parents should wear any Gull Lake apparel.
The parade ends at the Gracespring Bible Church parking lot, and students can leave from there as soon as their part in the parade is done. Transportation back to the school is not provided.
This is a really fun event and all band members, alumni, and parents are encouraged to participate. Have a safe and fun 4th of July holiday!
