Band Booster President’s Report (Alfred Perkins | alfred.perkins@charter.net)

 

This Friday, we have an away game at Hewitt-Trussville. We need volunteers for our equipment crew. Please go to Signup Genius and volunteer to help us load/transport/unload tubas, trombones, baritones, mellophones, trumpets, saxophones, snares, tenors, bass drums, marimbas, speakers, percussion, keyboard, generator, flags, props, plumes, vinyls, drum major platforms, water coolers, ice chest, cases of extra water, the flyover, and a whole lot more stuff which fills up 2 trucks. For those who have not seen it, you will be amazed at what it takes to equip 180 talented and dedicated young people (your children) to do something they love. 

 

Two requests for after the game:

 

1) Please do not park in the bus lane until AFTER the 5 buses and 2 equipment trucks have arrived back at the school. 

 

2) Once you do park, why not come help us unload the equipment trucks? The sooner those trucks are unloaded, the sooner your child will be ready to go. Many hands make light work.

PINK PLUMES PROJECT

One of our students, Lauren Grace, has organized a special fundraising project to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.  We are asking every student to donate $20 to the Pink Plume Project. $10 will be used to purchase pink plumes for the instrumental students to wear throughout our Friday night performances in October (Breast Cancer Awareness month).  The remaining $10 will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Additionally, families may use the following link to make special recognitions in honor of friends or family members affected by breast cancer http://bit.ly/PinkPlumeRecognition  We will be collecting $20 (cash or check made out to SPHS) from students throughout the month of September and October.  Please help with this worthy effort. So proud of LG for spearheading this effort!

Thank you everyone for all of the help this past week. We were able to get all the buttons sewn on and everything organized in the uniform room.

 

For those washing uniforms they need to be back no later than Thursday morning so we can be ready for the game on Friday.
