Hello Band Family – time to let you know what is going on the next few days.
We have some very talented students heading to State Solo and Ensemble on March 22nd with 6 wonderful chaperones in tow. Let’s all wish them good luck.
We also have a group of Jazz band students heading to the Orlando/Tampa area for an amazingly musical adventure. Can’t wait to hear all about when they come home!!
March 19th we will have our General Meeting for parents in the band room at 6 pm. We will select/introduce our 2019-2020 Nominating Committee. They will have the task of putting together the list of people that would like to run for positions on our next year’s Board. The Committee will present the list of candidates at the April 16th General Meeting and the voting will be done at the April 30th General Meeting. (Please put these dates on your calendars)

Now a word from everyone’s favorite volunteer coordinator….
I hope you all had a great spring break! We’ve just been told that GCHS will be hosting a track meet this Saturday and we’d love to open concessions from 7:00am – 1:00pm.
If you’re free Saturday morning and can help out in concessions – or on the grills – would you please email Cherie at firstname.lastname@example.org. This was sprung on us at the last minute and Mr. Goff and all the kiddos really count on – and appreciate any help you can give us 🙂
And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.
Happy March to everyone!!
We sure hope that you can find some time to give us over the remainder part of the year.

There are only a handful of people like you on this earth who have patience, are unselfish, caring and reflect all that is good with this world’s compassion! During our monthly board meeting we talked about YOU and the amount of time you have been willing to give back to your children and this organization. That being said, we felt it imperative, not to go another day before thanking all of you who have devoted endless hours of time to help this program thrive!
Some may take for granted the very things that deserve our gratitude, but today we would like to celebrate you and let you know that we, The Band Boosters Board, are forever grateful for all you have done. Without you, we simply would not be able to function.
Have a wonderful day & Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
Lynette, Davina, Don, MJ & Jeff
