SRHS Band Boosters
2015-2016 Competition Show
Night Watch - by Jay Dawson
SRMHS Meet the Teacher Open House is Monday, August 10. The band will perform at the opening, usually about 6p. Details on arrival (or stay at school) and attire coming soon.
Band Rehearsals have returned on Tuesdays and Thursday, 3-6p (6:30p more likely). If you can volunteer, even if only occasionally, please contact Tasha Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven't turned in your forms, please do so ASAP. We are not allowed to give any over the counter medications, not even Tylenol or Advil, without a permission form. Students are also not allowed to leave campus with the band without these forms.
We continue to need donations for rehearsals and throughout the competition season, especially Gatorade powder and individual snacks. Something salty is preferred to help replenish the salts sweated out during practice. Some parents have found area grocery stores willing to donate fruit for our students. It never hurts to ask. Please send donations in with your student, or drop off at rehearsal.
If you can donate items, we need:
Chaperones - July 29 -

Pit Crew - July 27 -

Next year's trip is in planning. We hope to have it mostly locked down by mid August so everyone can plan around the dates. We will be marching the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Savannah, GA, and going on a cruise. Right now, it's looking like we'll cruise before St. Patrick's Day, so plan on taking the week if you're going. You'll need Friday to recover.
Get started on fundraising now, and check those passports for expiration. They need to be good through 2016. We plan to hold a Passport Workshop in November, and will post a link to register once we have date/times committed.
Update - June 18, 2015
I hope and trust you are staying cool during this mini heat wave. We've been up and going for a while since the end of school. We had a fabulous Band trip to Niagara Falls, New York and New Jersey. Next year's plans are already in the making for the Cruise and St. Patrick's Day Performance during Spring Break 2016, so get ready. We have fund raising events going on now for the upcoming year, so sign up for Walnut Creek and additional opportunities.
