Trash Bag Fundraiser
Your student should be bringing home information on our trash bag fundraiser today. I’ve attached the information just in case you should need it. This is an individual fundraiser; your student will receive $5.50 per roll sold. This money will be placed in their student account. Due date to turn orders in is Wednesday, September 28th. Click Here for the Trash Bag Fundraiser form.
Just received schedules for the 3 upcoming competitions! This is very unusual to get this information sent to us this soon. FYI there is an admission charge for the below competitions, we are not sure of the price yet, but will probably be between $5.00 and $10.00. Mr. Abend has requested the cost, but hasn’t received that information back yet. I will send it out when we know more.

8th Grade Night
Starting at the next football game, Friday, September 23rd, we will be wearing our full Marching Band uniform. Please check that your student has their black marching band shoes, black gloves and black socks for their uniform. Also, since this game is 8th grade night, we will be serving the kids dinner. We will be serving cheese only pizza, cheese and pepperoni pizza, chips, pop, water and dessert. If your child is unable to eat the food we'll be serving due to dietary restrictions, please have them bring their own food for this event.

Please continue to sell your “Win the Band” raffle tickets. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have the Marching Band perform a 20 minute show in front of your home! If you need more tickets, have your student see Mr. Abend. Please remember all unsold tickets, along with the ticket stubs from sold tickets and money need to be returned by Wednesday, October 19th.
We have several individual fundraisers coming up. These fundraisers are completely voluntary. We hold these fundraisers to give you the opportunity to earn money that will go directly to your students account. This money can then be used to pay for any band related costs. While we don’t have a trip planned for this year, you can start earning money to help pay for next year’s trip. Student account money will carry over every school year.
Upcoming individual fundraisers for September and October:
Band fan t-shirts
