Band Update 9/24/17

24 Sep

What a wild ride the last couple of weeks has been.  We hope that all of our students and families are safe and sound.  I think the students are looking forward to some normalcy.  I’m sure we are all going to face many challenges over the coming months.

But as they say the show must go on…….
Here is what is on tap for the band for the beginning of the this week…
Tuesday 9/26 band practice 6 -8:15PM.  Please be sure to arrive on time and be on the field  ready to work by 6PM.  Please do not arrive late.  We are 3 weeks behind at this point and have a lot of work to do on Tuesday.  Be sure to hydrate and bring water with you.  It’s still hot out.
Calling all helpers….. We need your help cleaning concessions on Tuesday 6 – 8:00.  We lost all of our perishable food in the storm.  Thanks to Don Dombrowski and Dan Rogers who cleaned out the refrigerators and freezers.  We do however need to deep clean all refrigerators and freezers.  Please give a couple of hours to help us get this done.  No need to sign up just show up.
Also, if anyone borrowed some of our propane tanks to use before, during or after the storm can you kindly return them?
At this point all unsold coupon books and/or money should have been returned.  If you have yet to do so please bring them to Tuesdays practice along with the money you collected for sold books.  We need to wrap this fundraiser up.  Monies and books were due at the end of August.  NO MORE BOOKS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOLLOWING TUESDAYS PRACTICE.  ANY OUTSTANDING BOOKS AT THAT TIME WILL BE CHARGED TO YOUR BAND ACCOUNT!!!!!
Apparel – There are a few apparel its that still need to be picked up.  Can you please be sure to collect these items on Tuesday night.
Disney Trip – The Disney trip has been rescheduled for Oct 7.  We do have about 20 open seats for students who wish to attend this trip that weren’t going to be able to attend on its previously scheduled date.  These seats are on a first come first serve basis.  The cost of the trip is $110.  Money is due no later than the end of practice on Tuesday, Sept. 26.
October 1 – San Antonio Airfare payment 1 is due. $225.  The last and final payment will be due on Nov 1 for $225.  Chaperone selections are being done.  If you wish to be considered as a chaperone for the San Antonio trip please fill out the form in the link provided.
Chaperone Consideration Form . Invites to be a chaperone will be released early next week.  If selected you will need to begin to make payments for your trip right away.
Don’t forget to sign up those Sharkettes.  The cost is $50 Click here for the form.  Students receive $25 for every little girl they sign up.
Many questions have been asked about the missed games.  The school is working on this and will have information out to us soon.  So for now stay tuned……
I hope the students have an awesome week.
