Calling all Band Boosters! Please put this on your calendar –
Most of you know that the Band received NEW UNIFORMS for the marching season this year and most of them will need FITTING and ALTERATIONS to be done.
This Thursday and Friday, July 30 – 31, we NEED AS MUCH HELP AS POSSIBLE TO BEGIN FITTING 300 KIDS. Whatever time you can give – 30 minutes, one hour or all day – please come to Band Hall 2 to help. You don’t need to know how to serve; we will have you help in other ways. We will start at 8 a.m. and work until 5 p.m. on both days.
Saturday, August 1, will be a SEWING DAY and the hours will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We do need a lot of help to get the uniforms done by the first football game which will be here in about 4 weeks.
Also, please have you child bring their Under Armour shirt and shorts for the uniform fittings to be done on Thursday and Friday so that we can get the correct fit on the uniforms. We will have some available for them if they have not received them yet.
Please let Christie Tran know if you are available to help or if you have questions.
Thank you for all your help.
August will be upon us in a few days and before we all know it, school will start and the Band and the Boosters will be preparing for the first football game. But before all that begins, I am sure you’ve been approached about being a Band Booster. If you haven’t been approached or have joined the Band Boosters organization, think about the reasons above and volunteer and help the Band.
The Band relies tremendously on the hard work of the volunteers because without them, (and you’ll hear this throughout the year), “not much would get done.” How would the students get ready in getting their uniforms or how would the Band get the instruments and equipment to the games and onto the fields? How would the students get fed before the games and how would the Band be chaperoned on the buses as they go to the games? And after the games, how would everyone and everything get back to the Band Hall and put up after the Band performs their performance? Yup, you know who does all those things. And some of it isn’t even hard work!
Why do they do it? They don’t get paid, they don’t get benefits. They do it because of the kids and they do it unselfishly because they love the Band, the music and the whole organization.
As you’ll see from the chart above, there are some ‘benefits’ to volunteering and all of us need to truly thank each and everyone of the volunteers on game day and any other day that you see them helping out in the Band Hall. A simple “Thank You” goes a long way. Let’s give them a big hand for all their work.
So if you haven’t joined, think about it and contact any of the Band Booster Executive members or talk to any of the Band Directors about helping out. You can also click on the Band Booster tab above on the menu above to find out about the different committees and who to contact. We can always use the help and don’t worry, we’ll find a spot for you.
Thank you and Go Warriors Go!
