-First, congratulations to our new band officers!

-There will be an officer and section leader meeting immediately after school on Thursday to prepare for New Marchers Camp. The meeting will last about an hour and a half.
-New Marchers Camp is June 1 & 2, from 7:30-11 and 12:30-3 in the South stadium and band room. Wear comfortable outdoor clothing, your instrument, water, sunscreen and that good old mask! We will be learning fundamental marching skills and South's pregame and warm-up music. All percussionists, from all grades, will attend. It is amazing how much we learn in these two days! Instruments can be rented during this camp (30.00 for the summer) and hard copies of the music will be available.
-End of the year band picnic will be on June 2nd at Meadowbrook Park, 91st and Nall, from 6:30-8:30PM. This is just a fun get-together for everyone!
-freshmen bring drinks (single serving cans of pop or bottles of water) NOT 2 litre because of Covid restrictions.
-sophomores bring sweet stuff-individually wrapped please-little muffins or small packs of cookies, etc.
-juniors bring salty stuff-individually wrapped please-like little bags of chips or pretzels, etc
-seniors (graduates)-bring the entertainment! Games, music, etc
-teachers-healthy stuff (what?)
-Evening of Jazz is Thursday, June 3rd in the courtyard at SMS. The Indian Woods jazz band kicks it off at 6:30, followed by the SMS jazz band, Southland Brass Band, and one more set by the South Jazz Band. Bring a lawn chair, maybe a picnic dinner! It will last about around 2 hours. All are invited and it is free! There will be some cool themed baskets that the sections have put together that will be sold in a silent auction.
-Finally, looking ahead, the full band camp is July 26-Aug 4 (freshmen band only comes to July 26&27). 7:30-11 and 12:30-3 are the hours. And THE MATTRESS SALE RETURNS! It will be on Sunday, Sept 12. If you need a new mattress, wait and buy it here. Top brands at discounted prices and the band and its members benefits! This is one of only 2 major fundraisers we do each year. The other is the annual 5k which has become a favorite tradition in our community!
