Mini-Camp Update 5/25/21

I have two important updates to share with you this evening:

Like much of this this school year, I am passing along information as soon as I receive it, and then have to backtrack some or all of it shortly thereafter. The good news is that, if you went to the Level Up San Diego website and “expressed interest” in the MMS Instrumental Music Mini-Camp, you’ve taken the first step towards registration. The bad news is that no one is officially registered as of yet. On June 1st, those who have expressed interest will receive further information via email on how to complete the registration process. If you haven’t yet visited the website and “expressed interest” with your contact information, student’s name, and their student ID number, head to the post below for instructions on how to complete this process as soon as possible. It’s just as confusing to you as it is to me, but we’ll make it through with good communication, patience, and understanding.

Rehearsal times have been finalized for the mini-camp, and they are as follows…
Orchestra: 1:00 – 2:30 PM
Band: 2:30 – 4:00 PM
As you plan your child’s activities for the summer, please consider the following…

Orchestra families should plan to arrive at E.B. Scripps Elementary School 15 – 30 minutes prior to the start of the 1:00 PM rehearsal. Not only will students need the time to store their case and prep their instrument for rehearsal, but we will need help setting up the outdoor rehearsal area before the it begins so that we can start right at 1:00 PM (or at least very shortly thereafter).

Band families should also plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to the start of the 2:30 PM rehearsal. Percussionists should plan to arrive even earlier to assist with the set-up of percussion instruments and equipment. All band parents should also plan to pick up students between 4:15 and 4:30 PM as we will need help cleaning up the outdoor rehearsal area each day.
