Congratulations To Our Solo & Ensemble Participants –

37 of our 7th and 8th grade band members participated in the ISSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival and I am so proud of them. Our students combined to bring home 36 Gold Medals and 1 Silver Medal last Saturday.

Washington D.C. Rehearsals Started Monday Feb. 8 –

The rehearsals for our Washington D.C. trip are underway. The rehearsals are Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 4:30 pm. These are required unless a child has given me advance notice of a conflict.

Annual Butter Braid Sale Started Feb. 3 –

Butter Braid time has rolled around again. This band fundraiser is the most anticipated and profitable fundraiser of the year. People are always asking about this sale. The kids are not required to participate, but if we could get participants to just sell 3 – 4 butter braids we will have a tremendous sale. It takes a lot of resources to keep a program of nearly 300 operating and this sale is a big part of meeting that need.

The sale started Feb. 3. The delivery is set for the week of March 7.  There is also a chance for sellers to earn a $1000 scholarship.

 

Washington DC Trip at Capacity –

The Washington DC trip has reached full capacity. The final balance statements should be coming out soon. Make sure to not overpay before receiving this final balance statement from the travel company.

Fundraiser Money Due –

The cookie dough fundraiser and D.C. tumbler sale have come to an end and the money is due. The sales were a huge success, but now we have the job of collecting all the money. Thank you to all that helped with these projects. The cookie dough raised money for the band department and the tumblers helped the D.C. students pay for the Washington D.C. trip.

Have a great week!
