You can tell that the V. F. W. Puxico Homecoming is almost here because it is time to gear up for Puxico Band Camp! 8-12th grade band students can find the schedule for the first week of band camp below. The Puxico Marching Band will have 2 weeks of band camp that stretches from July 22-August 2. The bands’ very first performance will be prior to the beginning of school, so it is essential that all 8th grade and HS band students attend band camp. The Puxico Band will perform in the Puxico Homecoming Parade on Saturday, August 17. The Puxico R-8 School District will host a Director’s Reception on Wednesday, July 24. We invite all of our 6-12 grade band students, and their parents, to drop in for a refreshment and to meet the directors. During band camp, the Puxico Band Boosters will provide lunch for the students. Please message the Puxico Band Booster Facebook group to volunteer, to participate this year with the band boosters, or to make a donation. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 https://www.facebook.com/groups/276113843194599/ Band students should have their physicals completed prior to band camp and bring the necessary form with you on day 1.
