Thank you for everyone's support in making our Half Day Band Camp a huge success! Our Band members achieved a great deal of success this past week, setting themselves for another great week! Students should continue to get plenty of rest, hydrate, and take care of themselves in between rehearsals, which will allow for everyone to be their best at all times.
Full Day Band Camp Schedule (July 24-28):
Schedule is 9:00a-1:00p and 3:30-9:00p, Monday - Thursday. Students are highly encouraged to go home during the afternoon break to rest and change clothes, but may remain at the school, if absolutely necessary.
Our Friday rehearsal schedule is from 9:00a-1:00p. Our Parent Preview performance will take place in the Football Stadium at 6:00p later that evening. Details regarding the Parent Preview performance are listed below this message.
There will be NO lunch break during the morning rehearsal block (9a-1p each day). Students should eat during the afternoon break (1:00-3:30p). If staying at the school, students should bring a lunch with them when they arrive in the morning, or take advantage of the free hot lunch provided by the school cafeteria.
Dinner will be served to the students Monday through Thursday at 5:15p. Your fair share contribution covers this for our band students, so thank you for continuing to get a monthly payment in! The weekly Dinner Menu is found HERE
Students may provide their own dinner if they do not want to eat the meal that is being provided.
Parent Preview Performance - 6:00p in the Pace HS stadium (rain plan is TBA)
Call time for students will be 5:15p, dressed in khaki/tan shorts and their 2023 Band t-shirt (they will receive this later this week). Sunglasses are permitted, but no hats please.
All parents, friends, family and alumni are encouraged to come see and hear the beginning of our 2023 production “It’s Not What You Think”.

If you have not yet made your monthly payment towards your student’s Fair Share, please do so as soon as possible. These payments help provide the dinners for the students this week, band staff, facility maintenance, t-shirts, music, marching drill, uniforms, etc. You may submit this in any of the following ways:
Cash turned in at the band office
Check made out to “Pace High School Band” (can be delivered in person or via mail)
Online Credit Card Payment via Ludus (please note of the added charge for using this online payment platform): https://www.pacehighband.com/online-payments
Please note: there is NOT a way to pay directly on CHARMS, as it is simply a way to view your student’s individual balance, band calendar, and communication updates.
Please Note: Ms. Donahoo is actively working on updating all accounts on CHARMS. If you have made any payments for the 23-24 season, you should see that reflected in your account this coming week as well as any credits or discounts that may apply.
We look forward to seeing our Band members tomorrow morning & all of our parents, friends and family at our Preview Performance this upcoming Friday!
