Instrument Pickup & Staiatus (Stai Hiatus until August 1st)

For those of you who made an arrangement to pickup an instrument from me this summer: Concert instruments will be available for pickup August 1st & 2nd from 12:00-4:15pm. The other option will be on August 11th.

With MCLA, Mini-Camp #1, SYBC, and Robin Hood Festival now in the books, Mr. Stai will be away from electronics and the school until August 1st and won’t be able to respond until sometime thereafter. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Robin Hood Parade Additional Info

All Members – Here are two photos of 1) the line-up staging area for the parade and 2) the parade route. Once the parade is over at St. Francis you are dismissed. Please hand your hats to Mr. Stai before walking back to beginning of parade route(or wherever you are headed once dismissed).

Parents who are picking up their kids/band members after the parade – Membership is dismissed once we reach St. Francis. From there we will walk back to the start of the parade route. Once the parade is over, you are responsible for your child as I’ll be heading to SHS immediately following the parade to let band members return equipment.

Borrowing Equipment? All percussion and marching instruments that are being borrowed from SHS must be returned to SHS by 12:30pm immediately after the parade.

Parade help? I have a few people committed to walking the parade route with us as a safety precautionary. We have room for more that want to join in.

All other useful information has already been shared and is located at https://sherwoodbands.org/robin-hood-festival-parade-band/

Robin Hood Parade Help

Hello! Mr. Stai is looking for some non-musical assistance with the Robin Hood Parade on Saturday.

Last year I had a few people walking with us for first aid purposes as a precautionary “just in case”. We have quite a few young band members and it would be good to have a few adults on hand with water and first aid kits. Please email bstai@sherwood.k12.or.us if you are interested in walking the parade with us. The more the merrier!

SMB WW & Brass Minicamp Thursday & Friday 9:00-4:00

Sherwood Marching Band Woodwind & Brass Members, Remember we have our first SMB (Sherwood Marching Band) mini-camp/workshop this Thursday & Friday from 9am – 4pm. Meet in the SHS Band Room. We will do music from 9-12 and then stretching and movement from 1-4. There will be a one hour lunch break on both days. Bring your instrument, marching shoes, water, lunch, & sunscreen.

Recruit! Even though we’ve started up, we still have colorguard & marching spots to fill if you know of anyone interested in joining what is going to be another incredible marching season. See you soon!

Interested in joining the Robin Hood Festival Marching Band?

Interested in joining the Robin Hood Festival Marching Band? Please email Mr. Stai bstai@sherwood.k12.or.us your name, instrument, and T shirt size (Adult or Ladies sizes available).

The Robin Hood Festival Marching Band is an excellent opportunity for all community members to participate in a musical marching ensemble and share their music making with the Sherwood community. We believe that we should have as many community members involved as possible; our motto is “the more the merrier”.

This year we will be playing two songs: “Rock That!/September” and “Emblems of America”.

T-shirts and hats will be provided.  This year we are rolling out a brand new design for our T-shirts, so everyone will need one; please e-mail your size to bstai@sherwood.k12.or.us.  We ask that you wear a khaki-colored type of shorts or pants, your favorite athletic shoes, and then we will have t-shirts and hats for you.

The parade is Saturday, July 15th in Sherwood. Call time will be announced at rehearsal.

Rehearsals will held in the Sherwood High School Band Room at 6:30pm on Monday, July 10th, Wednesday, July 12th,  and Friday July 14th. Please plan on attending at least 2 of these rehearsals.

Sherwood High School is located at 16956 SW Meinecke Rd, Sherwood, OR 97140

Help – Looking for video of Concert & Bowmen Bands

Dear Parents & Students, we are applying to various activities for our Spring Break trip at Disneyland and need video of Concert & Bowmen Bands. Does anyone have video they can share with me via dropbox or googledrive? Ideally this would be from our April 20th performances at West Linn HS. The next most ideal video would be from the April concert we had in the PAC. Please contact Mr. Stai at bstai@sherwood.k12.or.us if you can help us out. Thank you!
