Drum Majors attend Spirit Camp

Congratulations to 2017 Drum Majors Ansley, Ty, Juan and Katie on a great week of learning at Spirit Camp 2017! The drum majors spent the week on the beautiful campus of Huntingdon College at the annual band leadership camp. Spirit Camp was founded in 1979 as a fundraiser for the Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps. The camp was one of the first of it's kind to offer high school students an opportunity learn the leadership tools to be effective leaders in their marching bands. The camp has always had a direct connection to the Sprayberry Band as the camp was founded by Freddy and Lynda Martin. Director Emeritus Dan Martin was an integral part of the camp at the beginning and continues to teach today. Both Mr. Esserwein and Mr. Ellis served on the drum major staff of Spirit Camp. Mr. Ellis is currently co-caption head of the drum major caption of the camp.  

Congratulations to Juan Jimenez for earning a most improved drum major award and to Katie Schoeffner for making finals in the conducting competition!

Thanks for making us proud!

We have a new "TWIB"

Hello everyone,

We have a new "This Week In Band" email client! As you may already know, TWIB is our weekly email newsletter for all band activities for the week. Each issue is sent every Sunday evening and will contain very important information for students and parents regarding band rehearsals, performances, fundraisers and band booster news. The new client will give us an opportunity to create custom emails in a much easier format along with giving students and parents more email options. 

There will also be occasional emails related to booster activities and announcements. 

The first of the new "TWIB" was sent out this week. If you did not receive the new and updated newsletter try checking your SPAM folders, promotional tabs, or email filters. If not, simply try signing up from the website

If you would like to be removed from the mailing list, scroll to the bottom of the email and unsubscribe. 

TWIB is intended for Sprayberry Band students, parents, and families. 

-T. Ellis

New Website Launch!

BOG Family we are proud to announce a new website! We decided this Winter to move sprayberryband.com to a new web host which will provide us with more tools to keep our community more informed on all the amazing things the BOG is doing throughout the year. 

The site can now be easily updated by multiple administrators at once which will give directors and boosters and chance to keep the programs up-to-date. There is also a robust media and social media component that extends far beyond sprayberryband.com. 

Stay tuned for more features to be introduced over the Summer and Fall!
