1. Students make sure you come to band tomorrow (Wed). We will talk about the band banquet and make some decisions.
2. Fish fry tickets - I have tickets for Jesse, Drew P, Leah, and Allie. Please sell as many as you can. We have put a 50% deposit down on our new uniforms and we may still need to do another fundraiser before the end of the year. Each family MUST sell or purchase 15 plates (20 plates if 2 children) in order for us to make a profit. If you ask someone and they don't want a fish plate, ask if they would give a donation. With new uniforms coming soon, money is getting very tight.
3. Fundraising/Fees Balances - Click the link in your text messages or on Google Classroom to see your balances. Fees are on the first tab and fundraising quotas are on the second tab at the bottom left of the page. We have a little over ***$7000*** in outstanding fees right now!! Please do your part to clear this up!! See note above about money getting tight.
4. New Band Uniform Update - Students were measured by the uniform company rep on Feb. 28th. We paid a 50% deposit - $4206.00 - for new uniform jackets, garment bags, and bibbers (pants). As previously discussed, each band member will buy his/her bibs and keep them from year to year like the shoes, or re-sell to someone else after they graduate or outgrow them. The cost for these is $78.00 each. The Band Boosters are paying the cost up front and each member will be responsible for repaying the Band Boosters to receive your bibs. No one will be allowed to march without these. They must be paid for beforehand.
We have not placed the order for the shakos (hats) yet because I'm still not happy with the design. The cost for shakos is NOT included in what we have paid so far. I will send you a preview of the full design when it's ready. It's going to look awesome!
