Mid-Week Band News: August 28 – August 31

  1. In addition to needing help during the game to assist in moving drum major stands, moving water for the kids, photography, etc., we are also in need of parents to sit as "watchers" in the band section during halftime and 3rd quarter and not allow anyone but band members into that section.  If a few parents are willing to keep watch over the section while our kids are on the field during halftime and enjoying a break 3rd quarter, it would be greatly appreciated. The link to help in this way is https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0448aaa628a3fb6-volunteers1.
  2. Graeter’s Ice Cream Sales is always a great fundraiser during our home football games.  This is a great opportunity for younger siblings to help support the band and middle school kids can use this volunteer opportunity for BETA hours, we just ask that an adult be with them to handle the money.  Please click the following link to sign up https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0448aaa628a3fb6-graeters.

Thank you all in advance for helping make this season’s football games a great success!  GO COLONELS!

Senior Banners for the Senior Night Football Game on October 11th will be available for purchase for $35.  (This is a completely optional purchase.)  Order forms went home with the seniors on Monday, August 26th.  Photos will be taken by Beth Smith of Big Photo after school on September 3rd in the band room.  Payment is due on September 3rd with the order form, checks should be made out to Big Photo.  Students wishing to take part will simply need to stay after school on Tuesday, September 3rd and photos will be taken as students get ready, no signup is necessary.  For questions or additional information contact Cindy Hardin at [email protected].
SnapRaise “homework will go out on August 29th.  The homework consists of compiling a list of 20 (or more) email addresses of potential supporters of the band program (relatives, family friends, etc).  These email addresses will be entered into individual student “accounts” they will set up on September 5th during their band classes using their personal devices (tablets or phones).  It is very helpful to compile a list as a saved “note” on their device, then copy/paste into the account on kickoff day.  The project is most effective if EVERYONE in the program does the “homework”, as our percentage increases with the level of participation.  SnapRaise is the most time-efficient and lucrative project we have, netting us over $14,000 last year.
