WSMA High School State Honors Music Project
It is necessary to set rules and guidelines in order to provide you with a safe and well-organized environment. A reminder that we are guests on campus. State Honors music students have a tradition of courtesy, neatness and respectful behavior and we ask your help in continuing this tradition. Be respectful of space, equipment and of others and be aware that there are students and adults attending other activities during our time at UWGB.
The administrative staff, section coaches and UWGB personnel expect your cooperation and sincere effort regarding the following:
|Nametag||Wear your nametag at all times as it identifies you on campus as a WSMA State Honors camp participant and it allows us to address you by name.|
|Keycard||Keep your keycard with you at all times as it is your meal ticket and dorm room key.|
|Driving During Camp||If you drive to camp, you must turn in your keys to the administrative team at orientation. Students are NOT allowed to drive or ride in any vehicles during camp. This is for your protection and safety. Keys will be kept in a locked and secure place until the final morning of camp.|
|Dorm Rooms||No room changes will be made at camp. It is imperative that we know exactly where you are in case of an emergency. Part of the camp experience is to make new friends.|
|Bed Check & Lights Out||Bed check and lights out times will be announced at the conclusion of each day’s activities. It is mandatory that students are in their room at these times.|
|Dorm Room Expectations||You are only allowed to be in your assigned dorm building.
When you leave your dorm room, make sure that:
|Daily Announcements||Students do not receive a camp schedule. Announcements will be made at the end of each rehearsal giving details about the next event.|
|Camp Motto||TO BE EARLY IS TO BE ON TIME,
TO BE ON TIME IS TO BE LATE,
TO BE LATE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
|Instrument Storage||Instruments and/or music must be left in your rehearsal space. These spaces will be locked when not in use.|
|Illness or Injury||Report any illness or injury to your section coach right away.|
|Part Assignments||Part assignments and chair placements are not written in stone. Changes may be made after auditions for reasons of balance, or at the conductor’s request. We ask you to accept these changes with a positive attitude, and remember, these changes are being made in the best interests of the ensemble, not to satisfy the wishes of the individual.|
|Talent Show||The talent show will be on the last night of camp. If you plan to perform, your act must consist of a talent other than the one that got you to camp. You can also form a group with other Honors students from your ensemble. Your act must be tasteful and appropriate for all ages.|
|WSMA and section coaches will be sending important information via email before and after camp. It is imperative that you check your email regularly.|
|Remind||All State Honors students will be asked to sign up for a Remind account. Section coaches will use this to communicate before, during and after camp.|
You MUST be a member of at least one of your school’s performing ensembles this coming fall in order to maintain your participation in the WSMA State Honors Music Project.
