I hope you each had a great day of relaxation today. Thanks to all the students who came and played in the pep band on Friday evening. We had a lot of great comments from parents and fans! We have quite a bit of news, including our Car Wash totals – great work everyone!
Schedule and Events
Tuesday evening – Marching Band rehearsal – 6-8p Hornline, 6-9p drumline. We will be putting music and drill together and starting on visuals. Don’t miss out!
Tuesday: BAW meeting in the band room at 7:00p We have a lot to talk about since we will be starting our home games in a couple of weeks. We need LOTS of parent help to pull everything together. Please come join us at the meeting to see in what manner you can make a positive difference in the life of your student and others.
- Roadies (equipment loading/moving),
- Chaperones (to ride the bus),
- Tailgating (parents to serve the food for the students),
- Photographers/Videographers (bring your own cameras, I have a nice video camera but need someone to run it),
- Parents to help with uniforms (right now it is shoes, socks and T-shirts),
- Parents to keep our water jugs filled and probably more that I can’t remember at the moment.
- We need YOUR help.

MEGA Car Wash
MEGA Car Wash results – Income from onsite donations $3,400. Income from Donations/Pledges $5,250 for a Grand Total of $8,650. That’s a great amount of income for a car wash! However, I’m sorry to say that will mean no pink or purple hair for Dr. Thomas this year. Those of you who obtained donations for Hollywood will have your earned amount credited to your account in the next few days.
