Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2017 Superhero Run a success. We had a great turn out from community members both running and supporting their friends and family in the race. We ended up raising almost $9,000 which will be split between the Davidson Band and Orphan World Relief. This money will be put to good use to secure the education and well being of children near and far. Another huge thank you to all the volunteers, parents, students, donors/sponsors, and leadership members from all across Central Ohio that made this event possible.
We ask that every student/parent of a student who will be participating in band at the high school next year completes the above medical form. Even if a student is “concert band only”, this form is very absolutely necessary for any travel we might do as a band. Please note that there are sections regarding insurance and health concerns that we will be sure to protect and keep private.
At the very end of this form, we have included a section regarding parent involvement. Please consider these opportunities seriously- without the amazing support of our families, we would not be able to do many of the things we do at the level we do them! Know that putting your name in at this time is not binding, but merely shows us that you are interested in learning more about how to help the band program in that way.
Please have this form submitted by Wednesday, May 17th.
This is one of the most important documents we release with regards to planning for the upcoming season. Attendance at ALL of these dates is a major part of our success and is essential to the functioning of our rehearsals. Please check the dates that are listed in this form VERY CAREFULLY and add them all to your family and personal calendars. There are dates that pertain to both the 4th of July parade and all of our Band Camp events. Also please note that these dates sometimes apply to specific portions of the band, so pay close attention to the descriptions for each date.
Also- please note that we are asking you to choose the dates only if you can NOT attend. Checking none of the boxes will indicate that you are available for every date and is ideal!
Please have this form submitted by Wednesday, May 10th.
Congratulations to the following students for receiving the Handshue Scholarship, which provides funds to help offset the costs of private music lessons. These students applied and were selected based upon their service to the band, level of need, and materials provided through the application process. Thank you to all who applied and our sincerest congratulations to:
Lexi Garvey, Junior
Paige Kingsley, Freshman
Tristan Miller, Freshman
Our Calendar of Events has been updated with the events for the remainder of the year and some of the dates for next fall. Please take a moment to mark your calendars and come support the band. Also, please check back frequently as we will continue to make this calendar as comprehensive as we can. Events such as all our Concert Band concerts, Booster Meetings, and other band related activities will be updated as that information becomes known.
