WEEKLY SCHEDULE

 

August 28, 2019

 

 

I was really proud of the student’s first performance last week!  The first game is always the most difficult as we handle logistics involved with moving that many students and equipment.  It was handled with grace and class by everyone involved – students and adult volunteers, alike. I LOVE THIS BAND!!!

 

Lots of important information below. Please take time to read it carefully.

 

Friday’s game is HOME (Bessemer City).  We will feed students before game (Pizza).  Help students to remember appropriate under-uniform attire (Instrumentalists-athletic shorts, t-shirt, LONG BLACK SOCKS).

 

REMINDER!!!! We are out of school on MONDAY for Labor Day (YEA!!!!!!!!). That leaves us with two after-school rehearsals next week.  It is so important that everyone attend our after-school rehearsals.  Missing 1 rehearsal means they miss HALF of our instruction. The students meet separately in 5 different classes during the school day, making after-school rehearsals our only opportunity to combine forces!  We had WONDERFUL rehearsals this week with EXCELLENT attendance. Keep it up!!!!

 

TIME TO SIGN UP FOR VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS!

WE STILL NEED 15 WORKERS (LATER SHIFT) FOR FRIDAY’S FIRST GAME!

I’ve posted the Sign-Up Genius on our website >>>CLICK HERE<<<

We need your help in many ways!

  • Remember that every family is required to serve two shifts in the concessions stand to meet your volunteer obligation. There are opportunities on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Friday throughout the season.  We can accommodate your busy schedule!
  • We also have opportunities to assist with Uniform Washing, Hospitality and Chaperone/Pit Crew!
  • Sparks In the Park Volunteer Sign Up is now live!

 

FAIR SHARE FEE Here is a friendly reminder that your Band Booster Fair Share Fee is past due.  You can pay this fee online at myschoolfees.com

 

UNIFORMS (Elaine Ake: 205-585-7548 | perakefam@gmail.com)

 

It’s Washing Week!  If you’ve signed up to Wash, see Elaine in the band hallway after the game for pick up.  We are washing uniforms and gauntlets and we need 4 more people to help.

 

If your student had a uniform problem this week or you are able to sew on a few buttons/tack hems, please email or text Elaine Ake (perakefam@gmail.com or 205-585-7548) with the details so we can fix it before this week’s game. 

 

FUNDRAISING (Todd Miranda: 205-202-0698 | spbandfr@gmail.com)

 

The bed sheet fundraiser starts next week.  There will be a sheet that can be picked up at school from Mr Neugent or myself. If you need to make other arrangements to get an order sheet, please let me know and I will arrange to meet you.  We will need those order forms back by September 23 so that I can process the orders by the end of that week. That is the day before Sparks in the Park! I will send out more detailed directions with the forms next week.  But if you would like to take part in this fundraiser, forms will be available starting Tuesday September 3, when we come back after the holiday on Monday. All orders are due back by September 23. 

 

SPARKS IN THE PARK (Chad and Ginger Hewitt: 205-587-4276)

 

Be sure to check the signups for opportunities with Sparks 2019. We need a few more good people for leadership positions. Also, we need everyone to plug in and plan help out in some way. Contact Chad or Ginger Hewitt with any questions. 205-587-4276. Thank you!
