Hello band parents and students,
1. FRUIT ORDER FORMS DUE TODAY - Order forms for the fruit sale are due today, November 11th. If you forgot, you can turn it in tonight at jazz band or tomorrow morning. Tally night is Wednesday, so if forms are not in by the end of school tomorrow, you may not have any fruit for your customers!
Online orders will continue until this Thursday, November 14th, so you can still order last-minute fruit. On behalf of the students, thanks for your participation in this fundraiser!
2. Volunteer for Fruit Sale - We could still use a few parent volunteers for this Wednesday (Tally Night), and many volunteers for Saturday, December 7th (Delivery Day). Please sign up for a shift - it's a lot of fun and absolutely necessary to make this great fundraiser possible. These online sign-ups are only for parents; students will sign up at school next week.
3. Winter Band Concerts - Our first major concerts are just around the corner!
Block 1 (Chamber Winds) -- Thursday, December 5th. Report 6:50. Wear all black.
Block 3 (Wind Ensemble) -- Tuesday, December 3rd. Report 6:50. Wear all black.
Block 6 (Concert Band) -- Tuesday, December 3rd. Report 6:50. Wear all black.
Block 7 (Cardinal Band) -- Thursday, December 5th. Report 6:50. Wear "dress nice."
4. Volunteer for Jazz Cabaret - Our first major jazz event is coming up in January. Check out volunteer opportunities here.
5. Pep Band Season is here - It's time for pep band! Details are pretty much the same as last year: each student in band needs to attend four games during the year, including at least one before the end of first semester. Sign ups are in the band room and the available dates are listed below for your convenience. The commitment for each game is from 6:30pm until about 9:00pm; students receive service learning hours and band award points for participation. Can't make enough dates? Make-ups happen during ASR (2 halves ASR = 1 game); see Mr. V and Mr. R for details.
