WEEKLY SCHEDULE

 

September 3, 2019

 

 

Week two of the season is in the books.  The students have improved from week to week.  Their hard work is paying off under the lights!  I LOVE THESE KIDS!

 

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

 

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

 

We are entering the time of the season when we only rehearse after school on Tuesday and Thursday afternoongs. With only two chances to rehearse after school, it is critical that everyone attend our after-school rehearsals.  Missing 1 rehearsal means they miss HALF of our marching instruction. The students meet separately in 5 different classes during the school day, making after-school rehearsals our only opportunity to combine forces!  Attendance this school year has been strong. Keep it up!!!!

 

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!

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

 

The bed sheet fundraiser starts THIS 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.
