We've completed another successful Band Bash! Thank you to everyone for your help and support. While final tallies are still coming in, it looks like we managed to break even. That's Awesome news and a grand success given the weather!
We received many compliments on a well orchestrated indoor competition. Kudos to all our volunteers and students on your hard work and gracious attitude towards our guests and vendors.
When we return to school after Fall Break, rehearsals will shorten to end by 5p. Students will be able to make the late bus if needed. If riding late bus, make sure your student keeps an eye on the time. In the thick of rehearsals, sometimes the time slips up on us and we don't notice it's almost 5p.
We continue to need at least a couple adult volunteers at rehearsals. If you can help, even one day or a few hours, it will be greatly appreciated. Sign up to volunteer at rehearsals here.
We continue to need donations throughout the competition season, especially Gatorade and individual snacks. Please send donations in with your student, or drop off at rehearsal.
If you can donate items, we need:

Our 2016 Spring Trip is ready to book! We will be marching the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Savannah, GA, and going on a cruise. Departure is March 16, returning March 21. We'll miss the first day after Spring Break as an excused field trip day.
To book the cruise, each person travelling must make a $100 deposit by Oct. 9. This is a cruise line requirement. We can NOT book without paying the deposit. If we don't book soon, we risk losing the sailing. There are very few sailings that will work for us given St. Patrick's Day falls on a Thursday.
After the booking deposit, we must make our next cruise payment of $250 per person by Nov. 15. If the payment is not made on time, our cabins will be released. This date is non-negotiable. It is a cruise line requirement.
Get started on fundraising now, and check those passports for expiration. They need to be good through 2016. We will hold a Passport Workshop in November, and will post a link to register soon.
Update - October 6, 2015
I trust that you have been enjoying our break, family time and recharging time.
Thank you to everyone for making Band Bash a success. It was a great day in lieu of the rain. A Big Thank you to the Band Bash Committee and to our Fine Students for making things work.
We are still taking deposits for the Spring Trip
Please continue to sell Fruit. Other schools are kicking off their campaigns, so we are running ahead. Apples $9.00 for a 1/5 bag no profit.
See everyone this week.
