Food During Band Camp:
Breakfast: Make sure you eat a sufficient breakfast every morning, including whole grain (complex carbohydrates) and protein. Band Camp requires a lot of stamina, so make sure your body is fueled well. One bowl of cheerios or one slice of toast with jam will NOT be enough to carry you through lunch.
Lunch: YOU MUST BRING A LUNCH AND SNACK FROM HOME.
Dinner: For your convenience, the Band Parents provide dinner in the cafeteria every day during band camp. All meals come with a bag of chips, cookies and choice of soda or water. You can order a double-portion on any day for additional cost. Pay for these meals at registration night.
Or, if you prefer you can bring a bagged dinner from home every day.Readiness checklist for Band Camp and Gunkie Day:
School starts: Monday August 12, 2013.
After-school band rehearsals during marching season:
Words to the SHS Alma Mater
Hail to thee our alma mater

Lift your voices
Sing your praises
Over hills and dale
Hail to thee our alma mater,
Seminole High all hail.
