Sorry, for getting this out late but I have included information for next week as well. We do have a game this Friday which is also Middle School Band night. We will need to have plenty of parent volunteers for concessions and helping the middle school students have a great night. Please make sure we have 100% attendance at all practices! Our first competition is October 1st and we need every minute of rehearsal to be ready. When a student misses practice we have to reteach the material which slows down progress. Please be at practice!!!
Please keep working on the World’s Finest Chocolate sale so we can hit our goal of 440 boxes sold. The sale will end next Friday. Students can apply $30 per box sold towards their band fees. This will help mom and dad from spending money out of pocket. Students can turn in what they have sold but only when they have sold an entire box. With this being said, students should have at least paid for sprit uniforms, marching dry cleaning, and uniform rental. I have attached the band fees. We will be starting the Fan-Fan-cloth fundraiser as soon as we conclude of the chocolate sale which can be applied to the rest of the marching band fees. All marching fees should be paid at that point.
Please see the schedule below. Remember, students with perfect attendance at all rehearsals will receive a reward at the end of the year.
