The competitive portion of our season is upon us! The staff and students are excited as we had a very productive day on Saturday completing the competition show. We will continue to add final details, but the bulk of the show has been learned and the students are doing a FANTASTIC job!!

Our annual All-In-One Fruit & Meat Fundraiser kicks-off this week on Thursday, September 22, 2016. This is one of our annual fundraisers that the Band Boosters do to provide funding for all of the supporting items that we provide for our students and band staff throughout the year. Strong participation from all parents, guardians and students in this fundraiser is expected and helps keep band fees as low as possible. So please make plans to stop by the band room this Thursday between 8:00pm and 9:00pm to pick-up your All-In-One fundraiser packet.

Spring 2017 New York Trip Monthly Payment Due
We are reaching a critical time in the life of our trip as our travel company will begin making non-refundable purchases on our behalf within the next 30 days, so we have to ensure that those signed-up are fully and financially committed to the trip. This is also important because we also have to ensure that we have the trip funds available to make our regular mass/group payments to the travel company. So it is imperative that you are making your monthly payments and staying current with your trip accounts. Just to give you an idea of were you should be to this point, prior to this Friday’s payment, you should have paid $700.00 so far, leaving a balance of $600. If this does not describe your account, please expect a call from one of the members of the Trip Committee to discuss your account.
Thank you for all your continued support!
