Email message from Christie Tran re: OUTSTANDING FEES and COLOR GUARD and PERCUSSION CONCERT :

Just a reminder if you have outstanding fees they need to be paid. I just sent out your students statements. I have sent a list of outstanding fees that are owed to the front office. If your student is a Senior and owe fees they will not be able to pick up their cap and gown this week, if they are an underclassman their report cards will be held until they are paid.

Your Student's Account

Color Guard will have practice Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week May 26th -May 29th from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm. These are mandatory practices they must attend. They have also been given a final project that they should also be working on.

Color guard

Percussion will be having their concert on Thursday May 28th at 7:00 pm in the auditorium.

Warrior Drum sticks

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you

Don't Forget

 

Just a reminder that if you still have outstanding band fees and your student is a Senior, they will not receive their cap and gown until they are paid.

For anyone else your report cards will be held until they are paid.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you

Closing Message from Band Booster President

 

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”   (Dr. Seuss)

After last night’s Spring Concert, which was our Warren Band’s last concert of the year, I thought of the quote above in hopes that it would confront the emotional strain of realizing this was my daughter’s last concert in high school but also, because it “unofficially” ended my tenure as President of the Warren Warrior Band Booster organization.  Unofficially because I still have until June 30 to finish and tie up all the loose ends and to help out the Band in any way I can as President.

I appreciate the fact that you allowed me into your and your kids’ lives and that you put up with me (and my jokes).  I wish the new Board and Committee Chairs and Co-chairs the best in their efforts to continue to serve the Purple Pride from Northside.  The work will be challenging but I know they will do a great job.

As I mentioned during my talk in between concerts last night, it has been a great honor to be your President and it’s been a fun, exciting and challenging time.  I met and worked with a number of wonderful people – Boosters, Band kids, School Administration and Corporate Partners; and, as I expected, I now know that there are a lot of great people in this world whose main purpose is to bring out the goodness in people, help them smile and make them look good.  

Even though we had some challenges during the year, we buckled up, stood tall and met the challenges.  Many of the objectives I had wanted to accomplish this year weren’t met but I believe we still made a positive impact on the program.

Again, as I said last night, the ‘President’ cannot do all the work; it takes those around him to help out and my fellow Board members were a tremendous help – Christie Tran, Susan Collins, Ellen Nystrom, Wendy Johnson and Annette Perez.  A big ‘Thank You’ also goes to all the Committee Chair and Co-Chairs for their tireless efforts in ensuring our Band received the best support possible and that we had the best fundraisers to help finance the Band program; and also, ‘Thank You’ to everyone who helped out throughout the year by volunteering in the committees to make things run smoother.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In closing, I will tell you that I’ll follow some of Dr. Seuss’s advice:  I’ll smile because it happened and it was an incredible year for me, but I’ll still cry a bit because it’s over. 

Thank you.

Additional Comments on New Leadership for 2015 – 2016

 

2015 – 2016 Booster Nomination Ballot

If you’ll notice  on the listing sent our earlier, one particular position and a very critical one (actually all of them are critical) is open and that is the Chair for the Enchilada Dinner.

As most of you know, this fundraiser is our largest and most important one to raise money for the Boosters.  Karen Gardner, who has been Chair before, will Co-Chair and help out the new Chair Person but we need someone to step up to the plate, be a superstar and take care of the Whole Enchilada!

If anyone is interested, please contact Christie Tran or anyone on the Nomination Committee.

awesome person today

Listing of Nominations for New Leadership of Boosters

New Band Booster 2015

Good afternoon fellow Boosters.

Attached is a spreadsheet listing Boosters who have expressed interest in the Booster Officer and Committee Chair/Co-Chair positions that will be voted on at the next Booster meeting next week.  As you can see we have some new names on the list and I am glad that we have more interest in the Boosters. 

Thank you to the Nominations Committee for their work in gathering this ballot and those Boosters whose names are on it.  If I’ve not included your name on it or I’ve listed it incorrectly, please let me know. 

By no means is this list the final listing of candidates.  If you are interested or know of someone else that might be interested in any of the positions, please submit your or the other person’s name to be included on the ballot. 

One thing I want to express to those on the ballot and want to make sure that all the candidates know is that even though this is volunteer work whoever is interested in and is voted into the positions must ensure true commitment to the positions and their responsibilities.  These are not easy and cushy jobs.  You cannot delegate some of the responsibilities to others and have them be responsible in covering your duties.  Some of you may have jobs at work, but it still is important that you fulfill your responsibilities and attend all the meetings with the Boosters and those that are outside of the Boosters organization, particularly the Concessions Committee. 

Good luck to everyone and I wish the Boosters an exciting and fulfilling year.  

I’ll see you at the meeting on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 and I hope to thank each and everyone of you who made my time as President a memorable one and truly an honor.

2015 – 2016 Booster Nomination Ballot
