We are in need of bakers for Prism. We sell your sweet treats following each performance. All proceeds benefit the band. Please donate individually wrapped goods to our bake sale. We typically sell each item for $1. This has been a very successful fundraiser in years past. Items can be dropped off just before each performance. We can’t take items any earlier in the week. We don’t will the entire Ant population at GCHS to enjoy your treats! Please drop me an email letting me know you are bringing something and when email@example.com.
We are also in need of more volunteers to help with each of our performances. We try to schedule everyone so that if they work the back of the house for 1 performance, they will work the front of the house for another performance. If everyone volunteers for 2 events you still get to see the full show at least once. Click here to choose which performance and sign up.
In addition to the bake sale we are also hosting a silent auction. Each section within the band has put together baskets for you to bid on. Look for pictures coming this week of what is available. You may be able to enjoy a concert and knock out some of your holiday shopping all in one night.
Here’s what else is going on for volunteers:
Wednesday, November 15th – Girls varsity basketball preseason classic vs Palmetto Ridge. We are in need of 2 parent/student teams to work this event. 6:30PM – 8:30PM $25 student credit for each student/parent team. Click here to sign up.

San Antonio: At this time all payments should be submitted. We are in the process of posting all received payments to our financial account. Charms will be updated later in the month. Please be patient as we are updating hundreds of accounts. We are volunteers and do have full time jobs that needed to pay our bills. If your account is past due please remit payment immediately. Chaperones please start making payments on your trip. Indicate your name on the check or in Paypal.
At this time all valid student id’s should have been turned in. We still have quite a few outstanding. Mr. Goff and Mr. McGuire have been given a list of those outstanding and will be speaking with you. Please turn in a copy of your valid state id, driver license or passport immediately. These were due by Oct 1.
Students should be preparing their room assignments and groups for the San Antonio trip. These forms are due in full by 12/1. Someone take the lead in your group and make sure the forms continue to move from person to person. If you are not in a group or have made room assignments by 12/1 one will be assigned to you. See attached forms. These are also available in hard copy in the bandroom.
Please review the band calendar for upcoming events. Band pictures will be taken during class in December. Many rehearsals after school and in the evening for concert bands, flag & dance have all been added into the calendar. Please mark you calendars for Concert MPA, remember these are required performances.
I hope you have a great week and enjoy the 2017 Prism Concert!
