Hopefully everyone had a great first week of school. Please see below for all of the info so far for this week.
Shish Kabob Meat Sticking - Monday is the first big meat sticking of the year. This is an incredibly important event and is meant to restock the kabobs for the BPA. Our kabobs are world famous and are the primary means of sales for the BPA to support our students. We will begin with Concert Band during 5th period then Symphonic during 6th. All students will join us after school till 6pm or earlier. Parents are invited to sign-up and help out as well by CLICKING HERE.
Lumpia Fundraiser - We will be kicking off the Lumpia fundraiser this Monday. This fundraiser can be highly lucrative for students. There is high demand for these hand-rolled lumpia every year. Each bag is $15 and students make $5 profit per bag. This profit will go directly to student fair share band fees. We will send order forms home with students and will also send a form through email to everyone. Everything is due on Wednesday, September 7th during the band classes.
First Game - The first game is right around the corner on August 26th. The call time for this game is 6pm in summer uniform. This will also be the last time students will be in summer uniform for games. We will move to normal marching band uniforms every performance after that. As a reminder, parents can now sign up to chaperone or work the concession stand for any of the games.
Chaperone Meeting - This Thursday we will have our second chaperone meeting for the year. If you attended the first meeting, you do not have to go to this one. Remember, you MUST attend one of the chaperone meetings to chaperone any band event. Also, chaperones must have a child in the band or be on the BPA board.
Voluntary Pep Rally - East Milton Elementary has asked if we could provide a band to play at their annual beginning of the year pep rally this Friday. All leadership need to be there. Everyone else are welcome as long as they have a ride there and back. We will meet in front of the East Milton ES at 8am and be done by 9:30am. The Band hall will open by 7:45am. I will have a signup sheet on Monday for students for this event so I can excuse students for being late to first period. We will wear summer uniform.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
