Interested in being a Warren Band Roadie??

Our half-time show is expanding next week with props being added to the show and we need the extra help to make sure we get those props on to the truck and trailers at the school AND then get them out to the field for the half-time show.

We have been proud of our Band and the shows they perform but now with these new props, the half-time show will have a bigger BANG!

Our kids need our help; our Band needs our help and we hope that many of you will get the “calling” and help us out.

Please consider being a Roadie. We need TONS of help. You will feel good once you come help us.

If interested, please contact Roadie Chairperson and Assistant James & Wendy Johnson for more info:

“Why Volunteer to Help the Band Boosters?”

 

Why Volunteer

 

During the Band Booster’s Meeting on Tuesday, September 16, 2014, Band Booster President, Alex Pena, presented a discussion paper on “Why Volunteer?” and talked about how the Band has a difficult time in moving forward with many of its programs unless we have help from our Booster Volunteers.  Whether it’s the chaperones, the roadies, the uniform group, the band meals group as well as the NBA concessions, and the other programs that will be coming on board as the year progresses, nothing can progress unless we have your help.

He discussed how he has tried to meet with as many of the committees as they do their work and he noted the hard work that everyone has put forth in making sure our Band, YOUR BAND, is ready to go and perform their show. We truly appreciate the hard work that everyone has done.

However, there is still a great need to get more volunteers. We can always use your help. Even if it’s just for a short time or a few hours, the “benefits” that you, your child or children, and the Band will get is immeasurable. Please take a look at the handout to see why you should volunteer.

If you’re interested, please contact any Executive Board Member or let any of the Band Directors know of your interest. We can always benefit from your help.

thank you very much

Tired of Buying the Usual Fundraising Items? See Below:

 

FirstChoiceER

Notice from Christie Tran, Booster 1st VP and in charge of Fundraising:

Our next fundraiser started last Friday and is fairly simple.  It does not require you selling or buying anything.  

The only thing you need to do is take a tour of the new First Choice Emergency Room Facility on Tezel where the old Blockbuster used to be.  Attached you will find the form that we are asked to fill out so we get the credit toward our account.

For every adult over 21 that takes the tour and turns in the form, First Choice ER will donate $10.00 per person for the Warren Band.  We are asking that every student have at least 2 adults take the tour. 

If you forget the form or your child has not brought a form home to you, please tell them you are with the Warren Band and they will have one at the facility for you to fill out. 

This could be a big money maker for us and we hope it’s a success.  Please pass on to your relatives, friends, neighbors so that they can also help our Warren Band.

Friday’s Game — Warren vs Reagan Photo and Video Clips

Warren Warrior statue 

Even though Warren did not win the game, the team showed a lot of spunk considering the bad weather conditions beginning just about the end of the second quarter.  The rains came and continued throughout halftime and the rest of the game.  Once it started raining, the Band and Color Guard went downstairs below the stands to wait it out.  After a while, the band began playing and having fun.  So it wasn’t a total washout (pun intended)!
