Boot Camp Reminder for YO Students and Parents

Dear YO Students and Parents,

It’s almost here! Our Annual Boot Camp starts Thursday at 2:00 pm and we’re looking forward to 100% participation! This is such a fun and educational way to jump start our season.

Students, please arrive by 2:00 pm to the AYSP building and don’t forget to bring the assigned pot luck item. And of course, bring a great attitude, your instrument and your music! It’s going to be a fantastic 2 days of music and getting to know each other! We have a great team this year.

Parents, we are having a YO Parent Meeting on Monday August 14 at 5:30 in Castro Hall. We will be talking about our outstanding program and the nuts and bolts of our upcoming season. Please make every effort to attend. I’m looking forward to seeing returning parents and very excited about meeting our new parents!!

One more thing, we need some parent volunteers to help our Parent Managers, Meredith and Rose, during our Boot Camp. We will need help as the students arrive (organizing the pot luck items) and during sectionals we will start to fit YO kiddos for their uniforms and T-Shirts. We will also need help on Friday morning during sectionals (again to get the rest of the students measured) and will also need volunteers to help with Friday’s lunch.

Being an AYSP parent volunteer is a great way to get involved in our program and our success depends on your generous help. Please e mail me if you’re interested and I’ll put you in touch with Meredith and Rose! We have lots of ways for parents to participate as a volunteer. (-:

Thank you all again and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
