Please welcome our new Assistant Band Director - Brendon Foley.

Mrs. Haenfler has taken a job in Mesa Public Schools and will no longer be at Highland HS. Brendon Foley is the new assistant and we are very excited to add him to our Highland Family. A little bit about Mr. Foley - He comes to us from the University of Connecticut, which is home for him. The past few years he has been a member of the Teach for America movement. He has also worked with the ASU Marching band and was a member of the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps and continued to serve as a tour administrator. You will start to see him very soon on campus. Please make sure to introduce yourself and make him feel welcome.

What's New in August?

Mini-Band Camp
Mini-Band Camps are super important and MANDATORY. So much of drill is learned during these camps. Our first mini-camp is August 23rd. Don't forget that all of the same heath-safety rules apply. Eat, Hydrate, Sun Protection, and Get to bed EARLY the night before.

Hair Braiding Clinic
Thanks to our new friend, Chris from C. Anthony Salon, we will have a fun clinic on how to properly braid our girls hair for shows and competitions. I know we have a lot of moms wanting to pitch in and help with hair braiding this year. I am envisioning a long line of TEN moms braiding all at the same time so we can get it done in record time. Chris will be available to do a clinic during the Mini-Band Camp at 3:00pm in the band room on the 23rd.
Please RSVP to Cami Jaworski at hhsbbpresident@gmail.com
so we know how many to expect. Also, if you have a daughter or friend NOT involved in the camp who you can bring along as your guinea pig, that would be great. It would be best if you can follow along on a real head of hair. You can also sign up to attend on Charms.
