58th Cary Band Day: Thank you, results and scores…

The Cary High School Marching Band and Band Boosters wish to thank everyone that helped make the 58th Cary Band Day a memorable edition! This event could not have been a success without the many talented students and instructors, adjudicators, the 400+ volunteers, staff of Cary High school, parents, family, spectators, Cary Band Alumni and the Town of Cary staff.

The results can be found here.

The scores can be found here.

Important 58th Cary Band Day parking and event information

The Cary Band Day planning team has been working to alleviate the parking concerns of past years by partnering with the Town of Cary to provide FREE “door to door” remote parking service. The Town of Cary will be providing GoCary (formally C-Tran) shuttles from two parking locations: White Plains Methodist Church and Greenwood Forest Baptist Church, both of which are within about a mile of the event. The dedicated shuttle loop will run every 15 minutes with a drop off very near the main gate for the field. Please see this map for full details. As in years past, we ask that you please help us maintain positive relationships with our business neighbors and avoid using their customer parking. Plus doing so might result in your car being towed. These areas to avoid include the Barnes and Noble shopping center, Harris Teeter, Cary Towne Mall, and the Village Square.

Band Camp Registration

Band Camp begins Monday August 1. Registration will open at 7:30am before band camp begins at 8:00am.

All band members will need to check in at the registration tables when they arrive. Below is a list of forms that need to be completed/turned in that morning. We will also ask each student’s t-shirt size.

Arriving at registration with completed forms will make the registration process much faster.

You can download the forms by clicking here. The forms are also available on Charms. Go to “Handouts & Files” –> 2016 Marching Band Forms.

Or just click here.

Below is a list of forms, and who should complete them.

WCPSS Parental Consent for Travel (ALL STUDENTS)

WCPSS Privacy Release (ALL STUDENTS)

Financial Obligation (ALL STUDENTS)

WCPSS Medication Form (Any student taking any medication, OTC or prescription during camp or a trip)

Marching Uniform Care (New marchers/pit or returning members who wish to change their cleaning agreement)

Insurance Form: (ALL STUDENTS) WCPSS requires that each student have accident insurance. Having health insurance meets this requirement. Each student should bring a copy of his or her health insurance card, both front & back. If you cannot make a copy of the card ahead of time, there will be a copier on-site, but having a copy already made will expedite the registration process. If you do not have health insurance, accident insurance can be purchased through a company that WCPSS has contracted with. More information can be found here.

Financial Aid Application Completed applications should be turned in to the band director, Mr Minick.
