Band Camp Volunteers

We hope everyone is enjoying the summer and has OHS Band Camp on the schedule. Band Camp starts on July 17th for Freshman, New Members and Leadership from Noon to 3 p.m. on Thursday July 23 and Noon to 4 p.m. Friday July 24 with our Registration for ALL members at 6:00 and Mandatory Parent Meeting at 7:00 on July 23rd. Full Band Camp for new and returning members is scheduled for the weeks of July 27th and August 3rd.

Camp is Monday through Friday noon to 9p.m. We are in need of chaperones and donations. Now is a great time to get involved! OHS Band is made up of incredible students and staff, and we have the most amazing and fun group of parents and volunteers. A key to the success of the OHS Band Program is the involvement of the parents and boosters. PLEASE consider joining us for band camp or any of the committees listed on the website.

If you could please go to the new sign-up sheet and fill in the times you would be available to help.

Sign up sheet can be found here.

If a slot you are interested in volunteering for fills up please send me an email – we always like to have back up. And remember parents are always welcome to watch from the stands and any rehearsal!

Foreign Exchange Students – Host Families Needed

We are seeking host families for our 15 Inbound foreign exchange students for the class of 2015-2016 academic year.  Families host for about three months as our students change families during their stay.  These students have dreamed of living in America since they were young, and you can help make their dreams come true.  As a host family, you provide room and board and are welcoming and supportive to a student arriving from another country who wants to learn our culture and language.  Rotarians, Counselors, and Coordinators will help in these areas and will provide you with support and guidance if needed.

If interested, please contact Harold Davis.

Volunteers!

The OHS Band Booster organization is a well-oiled machine.  This does not happen without YOU, our parents, coming together to support our band and color guard students. Please consider joining one of our committees for 2015-2016. We are especially in need of volunteers to chair our Fundraising, Publicity, Spirit committees and CDL drivers.  We are always looking for parents to help out during football season in concessions as this is the largest fundraiser for the band and it is the driving engine that keeps our band fees lower than nearly every other school. We also need an army of parents to work band camp July 30-August 14.  Signups for band camp shifts will be at both the Spring Showcase and at the Band Banquet. If you have an interest or questions please contact Michele at president@oviedoband.com.
