From the President

Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day! With yesterday being the holiday, I waited to send this update this evening…..and a super short update tonight.

Thanks to everyone for attending the Band and Parent Night last week---it was an awesome evening with lots of great information! Looking forward to another super successful year!

From the Directors

As discussed at the Band and Parent night, this will be an important year with fundraising. We need Parents who work with companies that provide grants, matching donations, etc. to please let us know. Your assistance in "walking" the paperwork thru the system is vital.

Please remember that Practice Charts are due each Friday.


Please remember to get all the forms you received in your packet completed and sent back to the Band Room asap---and please remember to sign and have your students sign in the designated spots. And please remember the Data Sheets---really important to make sure we have all your information in the system,


Thanks for all of the hard work with the Letter Writing Campaign---great job by all our families! Also a special thank you to Liz Potter for leading the event and to all our volunteers for assisting the students.
