  • We have kicked off the optional ‘individual’ fundraiser of chocolate.  We will be at it for 2 weeks – whatever is not fundraised at that point will be due for each student’s fair share account.  Contact Ms. Gonzalez with questions.  There are some great prizes and we already have several people going strong!
  • Guard Pictures will take place September 11 during guard class.  Make-up pictures will also happen during lunch on 9/11 for all band members that did not have a picture taken Aug 15.
  • Fair Share Payment #3 ($200) is due Sept 18!
  • From the Band Presidents:  Joining the private Band Facebook is a great way to stay connected and watch the band videos from the week!
    This link should allow parents and students to join  – or bring them to the Facebook page, which they can ask to join and we will accept their request.

Looking forward to a great week – enjoy your long weekend!

Ms. Gonzalez
