We hope to see you at the Band Booster Meeting tonight at 7:00 pm in the high school bandroom. We have much to discuss and even more plans to make for the next couple of months. We need your help and hope to see you tonight.
The next BAND BOOSTER MEETING will be held on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 7 pm in the high school band room. We need as many in attendance so we may make final plans and arrangements for our program to serve as hosts again for the Mid Continent Color Guard Association Championships in March. This has turned into the largest single fund raiser our booster club does and we NEED HELP FROM ADULTS AND STUDENTS ALIKE. We hope to see you on the 24th.
We are also in need of one, two, or multiple adults to assist in putting together our 2013-2014 BAND VIDEO. We already have a lot of pictures and video footage but we need several adults who like to photoshop and create movies to assist us in the project. We already have a lot of the equipment needed. If you are interested please contact Claire Kauffmann at email@example.com
