From the President

We've enjoyed a big week so far - GREAT meeting with the Florida Trip group, SUPER Symphonic and 7th Grade rehearsal camp today, and we're expecting a HUGE turnout for the SkyZone Family Fun day on Sunday. Now that we're halfway through the spring semester, it's time to start looking ahead for the Cario Booster Board! I enjoyed speaking with a few of you about your interests in serving on the board next year - if any of you are interested in serving as a Booster Board member or committee chair next year, please let me know!

Florida Trip Information Reminder


Emergency Card:

Attached is the nurses/emergency card that everyone MUST fill out even if you have already done so for the school or another field trip. This form will be put in a binder, and taken on the trip to be used in the case of an emergency. Please do not ask the nurse to make a copy of your already filled out card. This form must be filled out and turned in to the band room asap but no later than March 10.

Medication Administration Form:

If you need to fill out any forms for Doctor's Orders, Self-Medicating Forms (2 parts), etc., please follow the nurse's instructions below, and turn in to Kim Huff at the Front Office of Cario. Any questions regarding medication administration need to be directed to Kim Huff. These forms are due by March 13. If you have medications that will need to be turned in later, please note that the forms still need to be turned in by March 13. The forms and medications have to be approved by Kim Huff per CCSD policy. Medications should be turned into KIM HUFF ASAP but no later than MARCH 22.Any other forms that your student requires must be turned in to Kim Huff at the Cario Front Office.

If you didn't get a copy of the Florida Trip Packet at the meeting on Monday, we'll get them posted to the website for you. If you have any questions, please contact Charlotte,

Speaking of Charlotte, please join me in a hearty WOOP WOOP (hands raised and everything) to say thanks for all of her hard work on the Florida trip! A SUPER job well done!

Carowinds Trip -
6th Grade Band

And speaking of Charlotte (this time the other Charlotte), Thursday March 16th is the deadline to register for the Carowinds Trip. Be sure to get that sent in ASAP! Information about the trip is on our website.

Uniforms Update

Students going on the FLORIDA trip need to make sure their light blue Cario Band t-shirt that they received as a sixth grader still fits. They will be wearing these shirts as a group one day of the trip. If your student has outgrown his or her shirt and needs a larger size, please let me know as soon as possible so I can get them another one (no payment needed).
