REMINDERS

PARENTS: BECOME A MEMBER OF THE VALLEY CENTER INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC BAND AIDE !!

The overall success of the VC Instrumental Music Program doesn’t just happen. It takes the involvement and support of parents and others interested in promoting instrumental music in our schools.  The Valley Center Instrumental Music BAND AIDE support all schools in the Valley Center School District by volunteering for special events and fundraising.

To connect with the BAND AIDE, please attend our fun, informal meetings! It is during these meetings that we discuss and decide how best to help the Instrumental Music Department at all levels. Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month in the high school band room of VCHS.
 
The next scheduled parent event is TBA.
 
The Band Aide is open to all VCHS/ VCMS/ & VCIS BAND PARENTS who would like to be more involved with their student's experience as part of the VC Band Program. Meeting minutes from each month is located in the Student/Parent Information Section of the Band Website.

These two weeks afford us an opportunity to accomplish what would take approximately twenty-two days, or over five weeks, on our regular rehearsal schedule. Therefore, it is imperative that no time be wasted and that students come to the camp prepared.  Attendance is mandatory. The band camp dates are now scheduled and will be discussed with the students in March before Spring Break. Grades are given for Camp.

If you have any conflicts, they should be communicated to us by May.  Please contact us immediately to discuss any unforeseen or non-communicated conflicts for any of the dates involved in any of the camps.
