While this year is quickly winding down, we are simultaneously gearing up for next year's Marching Season! The kids are incredibly excited about the new show theme -- SPLIT, and it promises to be a great year for the Warhawk Marching Band!
This year we decided to theme our Mandatory Marching Band meeting choosing the name STEPOFF. As many veteran parents may know, this is the kick-off meeting to our new Season! It’s an exciting time for the kids as well as the parents. And we ask that you join us to a Fresh New Start!
As you may know, we have 1 pm-8 pm practices scheduled for all students who are participating in the 2017 Marching Band. Dates are Thursday, June 1st, Friday, June 2nd, and Saturday, June 3rd.
Following the June 3rd practice at 7 pm, there will be a mandatory meeting for ALL students and at least one parent (students will join us after their practice). Each and every student and one or more parents will be required to attend in order to have a spot written for them in the marching show. Any family not able to attend must email Mr. Madrinan at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an excused absence. If you do not attend and do not request an excusal, you will not be written into the show. Please understand that this is our way of ensuring that we have commitments from families before we incur the expense of designing the drill and writing the musical score for your student.
Also in this regard, we will be requesting a $100 participation pledge for each student at the meeting on June 3rd. This will go toward your Fair Share, which will be announced sometime in the month of June. The participation pledge can be in the form of cash, check*, or credit card. Checks should be made out to SHSBB, please. (see attachment)
Lastly, we will be holding our first Forms Night on June 3rd as well, following the mandatory meeting. You may pick up your forms packets and take them home, but we encourage you to stay and fill them out on site. We will have a notary public there to notarize the required form. We will also be selling season tickets, taking band camp dinner orders and payment for Band Camp meals, registering new and returning volunteers, and more! This is an important and very convenient night for parents to complete all of the required paperwork for next year, all in one evening! Please plan to attend. FORMS ARE BEING WORKED AND WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON.
