Congratulations on making it through our first game! Thank you to all of our students for going with the flow of everything and still putting on a wonderful performance. Thank you also to our MB&G Roadies for helping with all of the background stuff. That was probably one of the quickest games ever, especially the first quarter. The Buccee's stop was well deserved....I mean we couldn't pass it twice in one trip without stopping LOL.
Lumpia Due - This Monday, all lumpia orders are due. Remember, we need the order forms as well as money. Kristin Hollifield, Lumpia Committee Chair, will be here at 8:30 am to 4pm to collect all forms. Please make sure everything is totaled up correctly.
Band Trip Lumpia Profit form - We sent home a form as students were dismissed Friday night for all students that sold lumpia and are planning to go on the trip. CLICK HERE this form as well. Because of the fast turnaround with the trip deposit, we are needing to get you this money ASAP. Please make sure you turn this in with your lumpia form on Monday. Remember, all payments go through Group Travel Network NOT the band. See trip info below.
Band Trip - This Friday is the deadline for the trip deposit. this is $250 per person. If you are looking for the info for the band trip, please CLICK HERE to get everything you need from our website. Remember, you will need to create and account with GTN using the following link: https://grouptravelnetwork.groupcollect.com/go/miltonhsband-cruise2024.
Niceville Game - This Friday, we play away at Niceville. We will be wearing FULL UNIFORM for this and every game afterwards. Please take care of all uniform needs BEFORE Friday. Students will need to plan to bring their uniforms to school Friday morning. DO NOT WEAR THEM TO SCHOOL. Please wear claw shirts under uniforms. Also, make sure you have lose fitting shorts underneath NOT jeans. We will most likely take jackets off in the stands however, bibbers will stay on.
BPA Meal - The BPA will be offering FREE food to all band students after school 3:30-4:30 in room 131 across from the band room. They do plan to offer this for each game so students can have a meal before games. Students are not required to partake, however, they are highly encouraged to take advantage of this. Again it is FREE. This week they will be serving Domino's Pizza and Firehouse Subs.
Tropics - If you haven't heard already, our first potential storm has formed south of us in the Gulf. We will be monitoring this as the week progresses to determine any cancellations of rehearsals and/or performances. Stay tuned. So far, everything is scheduled as normal.
Blackwater Classic - Nicole Humber and Arlene Wires, co-chairs of the Blackwater Classic Committee has posted all volunteer opportunities for the Blackwater Classic. This is our home marching band competition that is being held on Saturday, October 7th here at MHS. The MB&G will watch bands all day and perform at exhibition at the end. Parents, we need your help to make this event a success. Please CLICK HERE to view all opportunities for that day. We will be adding the concessions sign-up soon as well. If you would like to be a part of the BC committee, you can. They will have a meeting this Saturday at 5pm in the band room. Please email Nicole Humber at email@example.com or Arlene Wires at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
BPA Sweet Seasons - During the month of October and a little bit of November, the BPA will be selling concessions each weekend at Sweet Seasons Farm. If you are interested in helping out at any of these events, please click the yellow helping hand symbols on our calendars. Please see any of the BPA board for more info.
MoneyDolly Fundraiser - We will be kicking off the next fundraiser after this week. This is the MoneyDolly online app. For those that were in the band last year, this is the same fundraiser we did at the end of last year. This time, however, we will be selling discount cards to local businesses along with donations to the band. This is completely online. More info will be given next week. If any parent owns or works for a business that you would like to include in this discount program, please let me know and I will get you in touch with Sean Santos, our MoneyDolly rep.
That is all for now. I hope you have a wonderful week.
