Jag Band Update 6/5/23

Hey folks,
Happy first official Monday of break! We have a ton of things to celebrate – students, you got to meet your entire section and hopefully many more outside your section; you moved your body in ways you probably never have before; you probably stood on your feet longer than you have in months; you were receptive to new information; you were vulnerable when we asked you to be; and most importantly, you persevered through the soreness, and the pain which made you STRONGER than last week. Congratulations on wrapping up your first camp of the 2023 season.
Seniors – can you believe you just experienced your first “last” of your high school band career? Last movement camp ✔️ 😢
Now everyone – you need to commit to move every day. If that means walking the dog in the morning, cool; if that means doing a yoga routine, cool; if that means lifting weights, cool; if that means going on a run, cool. Commit to move all summer.

Students – Go Move/Workout 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️💪👟

Do a little bit every day. Walk the dog, go for a jog, lift weights, do push-ups/sit-ups/pull-ups, just move so your body is ready for marching band. 


That’s all for now. See most of you tomorrow and have a great week!
