Weekly News - November 10, 2019
Happy Sunday Band,
Hopefully you've had a chance to order your Marching Season Group Picture. Flash Sale Time! If you missed the window, Go Right Now to buy your group photo from the Charms Store. I'll shut down the store at 3PM Today. Photos will be delivered at the Marching Season Awards event on November 16th.
A reminder that we turn in uniforms this next Saturday after the Marching Season Awards Ceremony. Please remember to take all personal items out of the bibs before returning them. We will also have extra uniform shirts available for sale for anyone interested. Students will keep their uniform shirts.
Next Up, a word from our Fundraising Chair:
Please visit the website which has been updated to reflect all fundraising events:
All paper sales for Fresh Country are due into the band room lock box no later than this Wednesday Nov 13. These sales need to be loaded into the electronic sales system and all payments must be final. If you are using the app for sales that can continue through Friday Nov 15. Please be sure to finalize your electronic credit card payments, if paying in cash/check that needs to be placed into the lock box in the band room so that we can balance the books. The Fresh Country sale will be submitted to the company on Friday Nov 15 in order to make the shipment deadline. Please contact Joanna if you have any questions.
Visit the Charms Store, and there is also a printable flyer available if you would like to utilize it for sales. The poinsettias are red only, smaller in size than previous years (hence the $5 sales cost). We are teaming with Lowes this year so a huge thank you to them!
Now a word from Mr. Dubbs..
Thank you all who were able to make it to the playoff game on Friday! I know the school and the team appreciates our support. Football games are officially over!
Happy (early) Veteran's Day! Many thanks to those who have served, are currently serving, and to our First Responders as well. You are very much appreciated! I hope everyone has a restful day tomorrow with family and friends.
