We have a huge week! Please go to the website and sign up for concessions positions. We are running concession for the Powder-Puff game tonight, we are running concessions for the JV game that is this Thursday and for the home game against Fort Meade. Students can volunteer with concessions for the Powder-Puff game and the JV game. We need these opportunities to be successful considering we lost a lot of money with the rain out last week! Please push your students to practice and make sure they are at rehearsal. We have our first competition in two weeks and we have a long way to go to be ready. I can not make the band successful if the students are not there.
The chocolate sale is over this Friday! Get your chocolate sold!!! Students can apply $30 per box sold towards their band fees. This will help mom and dad from spending money out of pocket The section that sales the most chocolate will win a 5 lb bar of chocolate (that’s one for the section to share) and there are individual awards for the top three student sellers.
We will be kicking off the Fan-Cloth fundraiser on Thursday the 29th at 7:00pm.
Please see the schedule below. Remember, students with perfect attendance at all rehearsals will receive a reward at the end of the year.
