CONGRATULATIONS WINTER GUARD!
Earlier this week, a request was sent out for Boosters to help with concessions. Unfortunately, no one responded to help out yesterday and our Band Boosters organization will be fined.
When it was evident that no one was going to be at the event yesterday, one person showed up and worked by herself from 2:30 till 4:30 when another Booster member showed up. The sad part of this is that the one person who arrived at 2:30 was a Booster who had been told by her doctor to stay off her foot because of a medical issue but she was so concerned about no one showing up that she felt compelled to go and showed up with her foot in a brace and a walker. She continued to stay when the other person showed up at 4:30 and both worked till 9:30.
We all know that after the football season, participation from Boosters drops in many of our activities unless it’s the big events like the enchilada dinner and BBQ, but it is necessary that we have help to run concessions when it’s our turn to do so or, as what happened yesterday, we will incur a fine. Most of the events are for just a few hours. If you can make it for a short time and not stay for the entire event, that will be helpful also.
Please, please, please take time out from your busy schedules and give some effort to help out the Band Boosters Concession Team whenever help is needed. You can go on Charms to see what the next event is and sign up or you can contact John Moya at firstname.lastname@example.org, Estella Carreno at email@example.com, Christie Tran at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com
In the meetings, I keep saying it’s for the kids and the entire organization and it really is but lately it appears that we are not too concerned about the Boosters organization. I know there are a number of dedicated and committed Booster members that we have but it takes everyone to pull their weight to make our Boosters the best it can be. I apologize for the negative tone of this message but I felt that it needed to be sent out.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Various activities are coming up. If you have the urge to help out please contact either Alex Pena, Booster Board President at firstname.lastname@example.org or Christie Tran, 1st VP, Booster Board at email@example.com; or check out the Charms calendar and sign up.
Your Band needs you.

WARREN WARRIOR BAND ALTERATIONS CENTER
Email Message from Ms. Danika White, Associate Director:
As you know, many of our students have grown since marching season. Because it is a Fiesta and Battle of the Bands year for us we need to refit the band to insure that students look their best for these two important events.
This Saturday, February 21st we are asking that all marching band students come to the band hall sometime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to try on their uniform and have any adjustments made that are necessary.
Please do this, whether the student thinks they have grown, or not! With the tailoring done to the uniforms this fall they are not nearly as forgiving as they have been in the past!
If you have any questions, please contact me.
Lately, it seems that all of the previous posts have been about asking you for money. As President of the Band Boosters, I believe I speak for the Board and for all the kids, parents and anyone involved with the Warren Warrior Band when I say THANK YOU for everything that you do whenever you support our Band through any of the fundraisers.
As we all know, the Band Boosters Organization is involved in fundraising to help the Band and the kids. These fundraisers help in the many activities that the Band has, whether it’s for competition, meals, equipment, etc. In order for us to be a top-notch organization, we must have these fundraisers and ask the kids to sell or for us to ask you to purchase tickets, BBQ plates, etc.
Once again, from the bottom of my heart and those of the Board, we say THANK YOU.
