2015-12-28: Important - New Orleans Meeting - Tuesday, January 5th at 6:30pm

posted Dec 30, 2015, 8:08 AM by Donna Cranfill

Hello all,
We would like to have another New Orleans meeting to go over some questions and concerns that have come up since our last board meeting.  As a board the most important thing to us is to make sure we are all well informed and work as a cohesive unit to better the experience for our students.  We encourage all Colorguard and Marching Band parents to attend so we are all on the same page moving forward.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 5th at 6:30pm in the band room.  We realize it is still Winter Break but feel because of some of the quickly approaching financial deadlines for the New Orleans trip we cannot wait until school is in session the following week.  We hope you understand and will make every effort be at the meeting.
Thank you,
Kevin and Maureen Ryan
Co-Presidents

2015-12-23: First NOLA Fundraiser is under way!

posted Dec 23, 2015, 4:34 PM by Donna Cranfill

Dear Marching Band Families:

Today, all Marching Band students were given items in order to do their first fundraiser for the 2017 New Orleans trip.  Attached to this email are the handouts given to the students during the meeting.

The first fundraiser is a Solo cup challenge.  During the  3-week Winter Break, each student has been asked fill up their Solo cup with as much money as they can!  The only catch is that they must be coins – no paper money.  Have a dollar, exchange it for four quarters!  The goal is to gather as much change as they can in that cup by January 10, 2016.  If the cup just happens to overflow with change, the Zip-lock baggy that they were also given will help keep it all together. 

On January 11, 2016, they are to put their filled Solo cup into the Zip-lock plastic baggy and seal it shut.  Again, be sure their name is on both the cup and the Zip-lock plastic baggy.  The students are to hand these to Mr. Hollett on Monday, January 11, for safekeeping.  All cups are due by Wednesday, January 13 in order to count towards the prizes.

How the money is dispersed:   Every student’s first Solo cup will be put into a fund that is shared among all the marching band students registered to go to New Orleans by Jan 8, 2016
However, for any students who would like to have money put directly into their personal trip account, every Solo cup submitted after the first cup will go towards personal accounts.  For example, Jordan turns in one Solo cup worth $75.  That amount gets put into the general trip fund along with all of the other Solo cups turned in.  Let’s say Jordan passed out 16-oz Solo cups to neighbors, grandparents, siblings, etc., and went around and collected them when they were full.  Each one of those additional Solo cups would be dispersed directly into Jordan’s personal trip account.  IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES!  (NOTE….only the 1stcup turned in will count towards prizes).
