Important Information/ Parent Social
Hello BPD Parents,
We are only a few weeks from the beginning of Summer Band Camp. With that, comes the beginning of lots of planning and events for BPD. Below are list of upcoming events and a few fundraisers we have on the books for end of Summer/Fall.
Summer Parent Social
Since we will be spending alot of time together, we like to gather over the summer to get to know each other. It gives a chance to welcome Freshman parents and spend time with upperclasman parents we have not seen all summer. Fun will be had by all. The Grandparent WIllis' have offered for us to use their lakehouse. BPD will be providing smoked chicken. We are asking parents to bring a potuck side or dessert Below are the details for the social, as well as a sign up genius so we can all see what we are bringing.
Date: Saturday, July 21st
Location: Grandparent Willis LakeHouse
Address: 11761 Oakwood Lane, Fort Worth TX 76179
Back 2 School Bash 2018, Saturday August 3rd
Each year Community Link hosts a Back to School Event where they meet the needs of hundreds of families in need in the EMS ISD. This year BPD will be volunteering to get the event started.
This event will be BATTERY ONLY. More information to come!
Sports Fest, Saturday, August 18th 6pm (Boswell Gym)
Fundraising is essential for a group like BPD. We will begin fundraising this summer for our Indoor program that begins in January. Because our indoor program is completely parent funded, it makes fundraising all that more important. Because we also have marching season that begins in September, our kids will be asked to partcipate in a couple of BOG fundraisers. Below is a list of the fundraisers that are already on the books:
BOG Fundraisers - BOG Fan-Pledge, Wednesday August 8th.
BPD Carwash - Saturday April 18th 9am - 1pm - 7-11 Boat Club
BPD Band Camp Dinners - Tuesday, July 31st, Tuesday, August 7th and Tuesday, August 14th.
This fundraiser is HUGE for us. In years past, we cook dinner one evening when the kids have 3-a-day practice. We offer a $5 meal to the students and that way parents do not have to worry about their kids dinner that evening. Well this year, we will be offering this meal 3 times. Every Tuesday night from 7/31 to 8/14. In order for us to maximize our profit, we ask BPD parents to donate as many supplies as possible so our expenses stay low. I have attached a sign up genius for this event as well.
BPD - Alliance Air Show Fundraiser, Saturday October 13th and Sunday October 14th
