Summer Band 2017

All 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band students need to attend summer band camp.  Failure to do so will result in the student being behind when the school year begins.


SUMMER BAND CAMP WILL BE JULY 31st - AUGUST 4th IN THE OAK HILL HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM.  Please note the times for the various sections!


Wednesday, July 26th - Friday, July 28th - Office Time and Preparation

Students will need their instrument reeds, sticks, music, essential elements book and a water bottle.


Each student will need a lyre and music flip folder for their particular instrument.  These may be purchased at any music store or online.


The Collins Middle School Marching Band will be participating at four home football games and 2 or 3 parades.  The band uniform will be required of each student.  The CMS Band Uniform consists of black bants, black socks, back tennis shoes, and a CMS Band shirt.  The band shirt ordering information will be given out during band camp.  The band shirt will cost around $30.00 if you want to start saving some money.  Dates for the above said events will be given out as soon as I know.


As I begin preparing for next year, I am excited with the potential this 2017-2018 band will have.  I can't wait to see what is in store for Collins Middle School Band.  Support these students and please make sure they practice over the summer.


Have a great summer and I will seee you on monday, July 31st!


Thank you,


Evangeline Bickford

CMS Band Director
