THANK YOU!, Booster Meeting, Mom notes

Dear Parents and Students,

Attached you will find the hand out from last night. Please note the important dates, March on Madison and fundraising opportunities.

In my plea for volunteers, I realized later that I neglected to say thank you. To those who have volunteered already and have signed up to volunteer, THANK YOU! As I have said before, it takes close to 500 volunteer slots over the course of the season. Some are on going, some are a little here and there. I appreciate you and you giving of your time. All of you help make our band the great program that it is for our kids.

Please look for an email from our board Secretary, Janine Reardon, regarding our keeping track of those who have had background checks.

Tickets for March on Madison were given out last night and will be this morning in class. EVERYONE is required to sell 2 tickets that will go into the general fund. Any remaining tickets will go into student’s accounts. It will be a fun evening and a great opportunity to raise money.

Pecan sale started yesterday! It will go through October 24th. Our community looks forward to this sale. So get out there and let people know that you have them.

If you were not able to make the meeting last night, search your kids! Today they will be given tickets for March on Madison and Pecan sale envelopes.

As a whole we do not seem to be motivated to do much in the way of fundraising. I understand, We are all busy. And we do not have a trip this year. We WILL have a trip next year. You have this year and next to raise money for this trip. It all adds up over time and will make a difference. Of course we always need money in our general fund.

This weekend will be busy! I am looking forward to it. I hope you are as well. Please look at the email that Ms. Thomas sent out earlier this week. It has everything you need to know.

Mom notes:

Eat something this afternoon before we leave.

Come out and support our school at Buckhorn tonight!

Put those pants in the washer and treat the stains as soon as you get home Friday night!

Eat well for lunch tomorrow.

BYOD – Bring your own dinner for Saturday. Or maybe just a substantial snack. We will not be getting home late. And there will be snacks available on the way home.

It might be time to get the sweatshirts out. My favorite time of year.

Hartselle is not far. Ms. Thomas included the address in her email. Please come out and support our band Saturday. Performance time is 6:00. James Clemons performs right after we do.

I apologize for all of the words. This is a busy time.

Have a wonderful weekend!
