SOLO & ENSEMBLE – The UIL entries have been sent in. We have 119 student performers totaling $2000 in entry fees! It is important that every student turns in their $12.50 for each solo and/or ensemble they are entered in. We are working on finding pianists. Those fees are separate from the entry fee. Students should be practicing daily on their solo and ensemble music.
ORLANDO – Orlando payments are past due. All students going on the trip should have already paid Oct, Nov, Dec and Jan.
LEADERSHIP – The leadership workshop has been postponed to Feb. 17th. Mr. Ferrito came down with the flu. The workshop fee is $23.
MATTRESS FUNDRAISER – I hope you all had a chance to read the letter in my last email regarding the mattress sale. We are very excited about this unique opportunity to raise money for the band program. We hope this will be a very successful event. Please invite as many people as you can to come by the band hall on Feb. 8th.
DEAN COREY PATCHES – Dean Corey patches are available in Mr. Lang’s office. $5 for the patch and $3 for the “year bar” patch.
EDWARD – The student leadership team, with the help of Shannon Huggins, have put together a wristband to support Edward and his fight with Leukemia. The money from the wristbands will go to Edwards family. The student leadership team will be selling the wristbands for $2 and the shipment should arrive during the holiday break.
