IMPORTANT - PARENT MEETING UPDATE AND NTCA PLANNING MEETING UPDATE

Image
Hello All,

Nikki Weiss and Kelly Spence have been gracious enough to step up and take this over planning for our NTCA Guard Show.  Due to conflict with scheduling, we will be having our NTCA Planning meeting to this WEDNESDAY, December 14th at 630pm.  We will meet in the black box at the school.  We have made some progress over the last few weeks, but much more is needed to make this a great event. If you can help plan this event in any way, we would love for you to attend this meeting.  Please respond to this email and let us know if you can make it. 
DUE TO THE JAZZ CONCERT TOMORROW NIGHT AND THE LACK OF CONTENT, WE HAVE CANCELLED OUR DECEMBER PARENT MEETING!
Thanks so much.  Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
Jessica South

SNAP RAISE Reminder

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS AND STUDENTS,
Parents, please spend 15-30 minutes with your student this weekend to put together your 20 email contacts for our SNAP RAISE fundraiser that will begin in a week. Tim from SnapRaise will be meeting with us on Monday night prior to practice at 5pm to collect.
1.  Please enter in your 20 or more email contacts into your students' "NOTES APP" on their cellphone.  This way we do not have to decipher handwriting.
Remember that the expectation is 20 emails per student, but more is always great!
Thanks for participating and we are hoping to raise enough funds to cover each students uniform for indoor (a credit of $250).
Also, this is another reminder that the September payment of $310 is due!  Please make sure to pay timely so that we can offer these discounts when we raise funds through things like Snap Raise.
Thanks to All!

Hello everyone,
Real quick, we want to thank Spectrum Concessions for the awesome opportunity they gave us last Friday.  For the parents that volunteered, we know it was a long day, and we thank you for helping. Stay tuned for more volunteer events.  As we say, we can't do it with out you.




So what's going on this week?
This week is a Thursday day game.  Click here for the itinerary.  Due to this, the rehearsal schedule is a little different.  Rehearsal is as follows:
Monday: 6-9 pm
Tuesday: 7-8:30 am
Wednesday: 7-8:30 am
Thursday: 7-8:30 am + Away Game (PM)
Friday: No Rehearsal

Added note from the band booster:
The kids were given a Blue and White Boswell water jug.  It is important that the kids have this with them on all away games.  Bottles of water will not be provide with dinners at games.  They will have an opportunity to fill up their water jugs proir to the bus leaving for the game.

I think that is it for the week. There are rumors of rehearsal times changing next week…
