San Antonio Trip:

If your students has received a new id since we collected in the fall please start sending in copies of those. Mark your calendars for the following dates. Mandatory Chaperon meeting April 2 at 6PM in the band room. Mandatory student/parent meeting for those going on the trip, Thursday, April 5 at 7PM in the auditorium. Mandatory luggage inspection and drop off Saturday, April 21, time tbd, in the band room.

We will need lots of parent help in the evenings as we prepare for this trip. Please watch for details to see how you can help. We may even be adding more lights. Our trial run at the Edison Light Parade was a big hit.




Thank you to everyone who brought in shoes to donate. We don’t have a final count yet. The practice room is still very full with shoes that need to be counted and bagged.


Look for details regarding a new fundraiser to come home soon. We need to get new art work onto our trailers. If you know of any businesses who might be interested in this venture, please have them contact a board member.


Please check the band calendar frequently for changes/additions to the kids schedule. May is very busy for concerts and auditions. As a reminder work is never an excuse for a student to miss a band event. The calendar is published well in advance to allow for students to plan accordingly. A lot of next years calendars is already being published. Start writing down those dates.


I hope you all have an awesome week.
