April 1, 2019 - Deadlines and Updates: State Solo/Ensemble and Spring Supper

Hello band parents and students,

Welcome back from Spring Break!  I hope everyone's vacation was relaxing, exciting, or productive.  The band had a fantastic trip to Spain, making new friends, seeing new cities, and performing to standing-room-only audiences.  We have only a few weeks left in the semester, but these weeks are packed full of great events and important deadlines:

1. Spring Supper Tickets - TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO BUY SPRING SUPPER TICKETS at reduced pre-order prices.  Remember that performing students do need a ticket in order to eat at the event, and that this is one of the major fundraisers for the band program.   Click here to order.

2.  State Solo/Ensemble Registration Deadline - The hard deadline for State S/E registration is tomorrow at 4:00.  If you are requesting a school accompanist, please make sure that you bring your $30 to MHS BOPA this week.   Click here to register.

3.  Spring Supper Student Volunteers - This year, each student should sign up online for a student volunteer shift.  We will be doing this in class, but in case you've missed it the link is here.
