Just a few things on the information front this week:
SHARKETTES: This is a wonderful program that allows younger kids to perform on the field with the flag and dance students. We have over 60 girls signed up to perform and only a very few people who are signed up to help. Help is needed for two rehearsal nights and the night of the game. The rehearsal nights are Tuesday 9/11 and Thursday 9/13 from 430-6p. On the night of the game, we need help from 6-930p. With so many girls signed up, we really need more hands to help. Please sign up on the site at gchsharkband. The sign ups are in two different spots under volunteering. The rehearsals are together under their own title. The game is under the Varsity Game vs Naples. If you have any questions please contact Heather Desrocher or Heather Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
COUPON BOOKS: Do you still need to turn your books or money in? What in the heck are you waiting for?? Send it in! You can send it in to any of the moms in the Uniform Room. If there isn’t anyone there, deposit the money in the Bait Box. Might want to hold onto the books until someone can take them. They won’t fit in the Bait Box.
BANNER SALES: Easy Money!! That’s what it should be called! If you can get one business to advertise on a banner, your kid gets $100 in their band account! Get out there and sell, sell, sell! You’ll find the form attached to this email. So no excuses! Go ask someone tomorrow! Banner Submission Form
Friday’s Game is 8th Grade Night!: so this means that kids from our feeder middle schools who are in band come to play with OUR band ON THE FIELD! It’s super exciting for the 8th grade kids and their parents! Do you remember? We just wanted to remind you that it’s this week because there will be a lot of extra kids around. Now you’ll know why.
This week’s game is Homecoming!! Call Time is 530p for students, 5p for volunteers. Students remember your band shoes, long black socks, gloves and berets if you wear one! Flag and Dance, come prepared too! You’ve got earrings, tights and hair to remember!
Students, if you need to miss a game or practice (or other event), please remember to fill out the Band Absent/Late/Early Dismissal Request Form. Click those words to get to it on the site. This isn’t a guarantee you’ll be excused. It is your request to be excused. Remember to do the math problem at the end before you submit the form!
HOMECOMING SHOE CHECK: So, traditionally, the band makes some money by working at the Homecoming Dance and holding everyone’s shoes for a small fee. The girls start to check their shoes once they’ve been dancing a while. 🙂 We have two volunteers and are looking for two more to work this event. If you can do it, please email Daniel Stewart at email@example.com and cc Lynette at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now on to THANKS!
