The Winter Concert is this Tuesday, December 11th, starting at 6:30. Symphonic Band members need to be on stage ready to play by 6:15. The booster meeting will start at 6:00 – all parents are welcome to join us to be informed and up to date on what we are doing and what is coming up. All Wind Ensemble students that did not play last time will perform their All-West music during this time. The band room doors will be locked at 5:50 at which time all students should be in the auditorium.
Please send in the attached signed form with the money needed if you wish for your child to participate in the current fundraiser. For those that still owe money to MidSouth Solutions, or that owe band fees, this is a great way to take care of the costs.
Attached is the flyer for the upcoming spirit night fundraiser at Chipotle. Looking forward to seeing all of you there.
Attached is the contract for those wishing to raise funds for band fees, uniform fees, concert shirt cost, band trip deposit/payments or anything else beyond these items.
Reminder: The deposit for the trip has to be signed up by the 30th of this month. They have to have this to reserve seats on the bus, for the Symphony, and for the hotel rooms. Many students say they are going but only 19 have signed up. 45 have to be signed up for the trip to actually take place. If you are even considering this, even if funds are an issue (which you can call ETadventures and set a different payment plan), then doing so now is crucial.
Above is the link to the sign up genius for those able to assist for the 5k or for the car wash beforehand.
The following update is being made to the band trip for those that are still interested in signing their child up for the band trip to Indiana:
Above is a flyer from the University of Memphis, and below is a message from Dr. Robyn Jones, Doctor of Clarinet Studies:
The game at Rhodes on September 13th is now at Arlington HS on September 14th.
I am announcing three car washes for the following Saturdays: 8/11 8-1 (I have to leave at 1pm), 8/25 8-3, and 9/1 8-3. These are all days that are also dependent upon the weather, so please help watch for poor weather. I am unable to do the 18th because of a meeting with WTSBOA and because the soccer team is doing a car wash at the school on that day.
Students typically show for a couple of hours, although some stay a majority of the day, and help to wash cars in our parking lot outside the band room. Some students will be on the street corners with signs collecting money and bringing cars into the lot. If any parents are willing and able to help monitor or simply help supply any amount of soap, it is very helpful. We typically have 10-20 kids at a time having a great time washing cars. We have made over $800 in the past per car wash so this is a great opportunity for our program.
This is not mandatory but a volunteer function. However, most of the band tends to show up. If you have any questions, please reach out and let me know.
