All-State Auditions - Congratulations to all of the students that auditioned for All-State Saturday! These students worked hard and improved so much simply by putting yourselves on the line and go through this audition process. Thank you to the student workers that helped make that a success. A HUGE thank you to Arlene Wire and Scottie Armstrong for helping out all day with food set up and other tasks. It was a LONG and successful day.
Game this Friday - We have our second home game of the season this Friday vs Escambia HS. Call time is 6pm. The BPA will be serving dinner 4pm-5:30 in the BPA concessions. They will be serving chicken bites, chips, hotdogs, and hamburgers. This is all FREE to all band students. I encourage you to take advantage of this.
Show Shirt Designs - Show Shirt Designs are due this Tuesday. Remember, designs need to include the show title (OUR WAY) and Year 2023-24. Please put your name on the back of the design and turn it in to the directors. We will vote on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
BPA Concessions at Football Game - the BPA needs help at the concession stand for the game this Friday. If you are interested/available, please CLICK HERE to sign-up.
Marching Band/Section Pics - We have scheduled the full marching band and section pics for 4pm in the football stadium on Monday, September 25th. Please make sure you mark this on your calendar. We should be done by 5:30ish. Section leaders, please start planning your section pic.
Sweet Seasons - The annual BPA concession sales at Sweet Seasons farms will be kicking off in a couple weeks. This will occur every weekend starting September 30th through November 5th. This is a fun family event and any help is appreciated. Please click the yellow helping hand symbol on any event for Sweet Seasons on our calendar and sign-up.
MoneyDolly FR - We kicked-off this online fundraiser a couple weeks ago. For those that were in the band last year, you may remember we sold beef jerky and popcorn as well as earned donations with this app. This is the same thing only this time, buyers can purchase discount and BOGO cards to local and regional businesses. Students should have downloaded the MoneyDolly app to their phones and uploaded contacts. From there, everything else is automatic. We've already had several sales/donations. Please help spread the word on this.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
