I hope that everyone had a terrific Christmas yesterday and is enjoying some much needed time with family. Times like this allow us to reflect on the many blessings in our life. Thank you for being a blessing to our band program.
I published the list of students who signed up for the Chick-fil-a Bowl on Google Classroom today. I didn’t want to publish it publicly. Your child should be able to access this – if not then please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I send you the list.
It is important that this list is accurate. I had to order these tickets back in November, which is why the deadline was so early. If your child made the commitment, they need to honor it because we are counting on them. If they did not make the commitment at that time, I unfortunately am unable to get them a ticket at this point. Emergencies however do happen, so if your child is interested, please send me an e-mail and I will put them on a waiting list. I would like to use 100% of the tickets that have been purchased for us.
