Look for more information from Mr. Arsenault later this Spring, however to help you plan your summer holidays around the Band Camp, we try to share the dates as early as possible.
The ABRHS Band Camp at the High School is critical (and fun!) as the students learn the new show & new students learn how to march and the entire band gels as “the Greatest Band in the Land”.
2019 Summer Band Camp Dates:
Monday, August 12th to Friday, August 16th, 2019
Camp runs ~ 9 AM to 9 PM with lunch and dinner breaks.
(ABFOM provides Dinner on Monday and hosts the Friday Party)
REMINDER – All CORI forms must be renewed this year!
This is a reminder that everyone will need to have a new CORI Form completed this year.
If you had your form updated after January 1st 2018, then your form is good for the new 3 year period. All others need to be updated for the new 3 year cycle- no exceptions.
The absolute BEST TIME to get your CORI updated is NOW before school is in summer recess.
Simply stop by the AB High School front office – open from ~7 am to ~4 pm (or any other school in the AB School district) with a government issued Photo Identification document such as drivers’ license, passport, state Identification, etc. and complete the Form
CORI’s do not transfer between entities such as your church, and your employment, to the AB school district however the CORI for ABFOM is good across the entire AB School district.
We will need volunteers for Band & Chorus Camp including new freshmen parents, so do not delay. During the summer, the office has previously been open from ~7 am to 2 pm.
New Graduates – if you are 18, and you are thinking to help volunteer at Band Camp, please complete the CORI form now as well. We love to have our Student Volunteers but we must follow the school, state and Federal laws.
