  • The drink fundraiser is due THIS FRIDAY!!!  All money and order forms should be placed in an envelope with your student's name on the outside of the envelope labeled "drink fundraiser" and place in the fundraiser tub by THIS FRIDAY!  This fundraiser will take care of buses/equipment to parades, music for parades, band banquet decorations/senior gifts, and start the preparation for our fireworks order for this summer.  Each student is asked to sell at least 6 cases or get $30 in donations.  Each student was given a paper copy of the order but I am attaching it to the email again as well.  We need EVERYONE to do his/her part in making this fundraiser a success!
  • Color Guard Audition Clinic #5 is TOMORROW from 3:30 until 5!  Be sure to invite someone new to attend even if they haven't attended any of the previous clinics.  We could still use 3-5 more girls if you of anyone who is interested.  Send them my way or have them talk to Ms. DeDe ASAP!  
  • Fall 2019 Percussion Auditions Clinics continue this week according to the schedule above!  If your student has a school related conflict they MUST communicate this with Mr. Tico IN ADVANCE!
  • Continue encouraging 8th graders all the way up through the 1st June rehearsal to at least give band a shot next year!  We have a great show in store for the fall and now we need a group of dedicated performers to pull it off and make it great!
  • Continue to take care of outstanding debt!  Attached is how I have the debt list according to CutTime as of today.  Any questions, please contact Andie Watson at andreadwatson@hotmail.com.  This debt list has been turned over to the office.  Debt can be paid to either me in the band office or Mrs. Kim in the main office.  Remember freshmen-juniors will NOT be able to participate in the first June rehearsal until this debt has been taken care of and seniors will NOT receive his/her diploma until this debt has been cleared!
