We have our first away game this week! Please go to the website and sign up for a chaperoning position if you are interested in going. Please push your students to practice and make sure they are at rehearsal.
The chocolate sale is still going strong! Please keep working on the World’s Finest Chocolate sale so we can hit our goal of 440 boxes sold. Students can apply $30 per box sold towards their band fees. This will help mom and dad from spending money out of pocket. We have ordered the 2nd delivery of chocolate anticipating the success of this fundraiser. Students can turn in what they have sold but only when they have sold an entire box. Then they will be issued more chocolate. The section that sales the most chocolate will win a 5lb chocolate (that’s one for the section to share) and there are individual awards for the top three student sellers.
Please see the schedule below. Remember, students with perfect attendance at all rehearsals will receive a reward at the end of the year.

Pepsi Wars is still going… The section that donates the most cans of soda and bottle water will get to choose their bus first. We will sign up for busses this Friday during the school day after the winning section has signed up. Only donate: regular Pepsi, diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Serra Mist, small bottles of Gator Aid, water (16oz), and Dr. Pepper. The goal is to collect enough Pepsi to supply the concession stand for the entire season. We need to see soda coming in this week! Thank you!!
