Schedule for the week and Butler Contest!

Dear Band Family,

I hope all enjoyed some time off this weekend.

As a quick reminder, please keep track of when you or your child has signed up to work Bingo.  We had 6 marching band students who didn’t show up this past Saturday night really putting everyone working the session in a bind.  Please keep in mind, we keep band fees low due to a group effort where everyone helps with fundraising and participates in Bingo.  We are traveling to Winston-Salem, NC in a couple of weeks and the trip will cost the band program an additional $20,000+ approximately.  We are able to take trips to contests without “student trip fees” due to everyone working to raise money for the program and a small band fee.

Please note the schedule for the week below.

Mon. (today) 10/3
MB Rehearsal 3:45-6:15 PM

Our design team will be in this weekend working with us over our last 2 camp days to help finish the show and add any of the remaining layers of work to the production!  We are very excited about trying to finish and refine our show!
