Band and Guard Camp! Sign up now!

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I cordially invite your child to attend the Kaiser High School Band & Color Guard Camp. I’m Anthony J. Allmond, the Band Director at Kaiser, and I’m very excited about being apart of providing your child with an educational experience that will impact them for a lifetime. Kaiser’s band and color guard has enjoyed phenomenal success in its 23rd year of performing and looking forward to greater accomplishments.


Band & Color Guard Camp is very important, because it prepares students for the challenges of the upcoming football season and competitive events that they will be attending. It also allows the band to become a cohesive unit and gain confidence in their abilities. We will be performing at some competitions this year and doing halftime at the home football games.


Band Camp will be held at Kaiser High School on July 15th – July 23rd. It will begin at 8:00am and end at 2:45pm daily excluding weekends. Because of the significance of Band Camp it is mandatory that every student who is signed up for Band & Color Guard attend Band Camp. We will be having a Booster meeting TBA. We will need every parent’s help in making this club’s efforts successful. We will be discussing, parent monetary contributions, fund–raising, the band schedule, and other issues important to our organization. Please plan on attending this important meeting to insure that this will be a rewarding experience for both you and your child. I’m very much looking forward to meeting you and working with your child for the duration of their time at Kaiser High School.

Musically Yours,
Anthony J. Allmond

Letter to Seniors

Dear Seniors,

How odd you must be feeling right now. 50% of you is ECSTATIC that you are graduating. The other 50% is SAD that it is happening with such little Pomp and Circumstance (a little director humor there). Honestly, I am feeling a little victimized myself. I am sad that I don't get to be by your side and celebrate YOU! Yes, celebrate YOU! Not just as a musician but as the young person I adore.

Please know that this is NOT our finé. It is is just a brief intermission. Trust me when I say we will see each other again, and we will celebrate you.

For now, stay healthy, keep a positive attitude, and remember that your academic achievement has been diminished one bit by this pandemic, just the party. YOU DID IT, and the pandemic can never take that away from you!

I will be in touch as more information becomes available about how and when we can get together. Until then CONGRATULATIONS!

Your high school music teacher,

Anthony J. Allmond

Instrumental Music Director Kaiser High School
