Please send any forms in that are needed, especially for new students: Band Handbook form, Instrument Loan Form, and Student Info. form all of which are found here on our website under the forms tab.
Reminder that the uniform orders have to be in by August 11th. Band fees largely cover the cost of the buses for our games so sending in money for the band fees will allow us to go to the games. It is not fair to take students that don’t pay for each game (which amounts to $7-10/game per student). If the only thing sent in is the money for the games each week in order to budget for the year, that is fine. I just have to account for each thing we spend. I also have to recoup the money the boosters are putting forth to pay the musicians from the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and the University of Memphis that have helped your children the last two weeks. Please let me know if there are extenuating circumstances and I can definitely work with everyone as needed to ensure your child can still participate.
We desperately need someone to pull our trailer for the games. Even if you can only pull for one game, that is fine. The sign up genius on our Facebook page will enable you to sign up for any game you are able to help us. At the moment, I have no one signed up which will keep us from going to any games at the moment. If anyone has questions about what is needed to do this, please reach out to me and I am happy to explain and walk through the process.
The general schedule for this week will be 3-6pm each day with a preview show for the parents Thursday at 5:30. This has been a potluck in the past but with Covid, I feel it is safer to bring your own food if you wish to eat at the outside table courtyard while the students perform for you.
