First, I have to thank everyone who came out and helped with uniform fittings, alterations, and the first football game last week. It was amazing to see all the new (and of course old) faces excited about starting another marching season! We have fitted all but 3 band students for uniforms, and there are a couple of color guard members that we still need to get fitted.
Thanks to some AMAZING ladies, we have alterations completed on EVERYONE who was fitted. I am forever thankful for each and every one of you. I’m hoping to be able to grab those few students before the game Friday night to finish up fittings this week so they can be sent off for cleaning.
Now on to week 2 of football season…
Call time for students this Friday is 5:30. I know that LaTasha needs some volunteers to help sell merchandise during the game. If you are available just reply to me and I’ll pass that information along to her. We do need donations of snack items for students while they are traveling to and from football games. If you are at the store and can pick up an extra box or two just send it to the band hall with your student. There will be more information about this at the Pot Luck Dinner next week.
On that note, we are going to have the Pot Luck Dinner (or some variation) next Tuesday September 9th at 7:00. Mr. Ruiz will be sending out more information to you all directly but I wanted to start getting the word out. We also have a booster club board meeting scheduled for Tuesday. I’d like to start the booster club meeting promptly at6:00, rather than our previously scheduled time of 7:00. If you have agenda items that we need to discuss please email them to me. Even if you are not a member of the board please feel free to join us! We are working hard to include everyone and need input and help doing so. We still need a middle school parent to volunteer to send out information to parents of beginner and middle school band.
Next week is homecoming!! Yes, it’s early this year! Thelma Lopez has been working on homecoming mums for the band to sell all summer, THANK YOU THELMA! Vicki McCracken is heading up mum sales at the high school during lunch this year. She is in need of a parent to help sell on Wednesday as she has to work that day. If you can help PLEASE let me know. We are still coordinating with Mrs. Stoner but should have details ironed out later this week.
I’m sure I’m missing something, but this is a good start! Thank you all for being a part of and supporting the LV Band, together we can all make it bigger and better than ever!
