Here's what's going on this week:
Tuesday - Rehearsal from 5:30 - 8:30pm
Wednesday - after school sectionals
Saturday - Arvada Parade - call time 7:00am - students need to be at the school by 7am with black socks, their marching shoes, their instrument, remember hair needs to be up. Make sure your student is well hydrated and has breakfast, luckily the current weather forecast for Saturday is 74*!
The showcase is also on Saturday, I will let you know the call time for that later in the week.
We have only sold 54 tickets for the In N Out food truck, in order for them to come, we have to sell a minimum of 200 tickets. Please get the forms in by tomorrow, if we cannot sell enough tickets we will have to cancel the food truck. The money from the In N Out tickets sold by your student will go into their account. These funds can help with paying for the big trip, their band fees for this year, or next year's fees. If your student is wanting to eat In N Out on Saturday, you must purchase a ticket for them, the tickets are $5, $3.75 will go into their account (so dinner will cost them $2.25). We would love to see this become an annual event, but we need your help to make it successful, so please get those forms in.
The plan is for the students who purchase an In N Out ticket to eat first on Saturday at 4pm at the school, then the line will open up to everyone else. During this time, we encourage you to bring some lawn chairs and yard games and have a good time having a marching band tailgate party. There will also be a Hawaiian ice truck for dessert! Once everyone has eaten, we will head into the school stadium to watch the students perform this year's show. The entry fee will be $5 (kids 12 & under are free). Let's come together and make this a fun evening that will help raise funds for your student's and the band account to help purchase new front ensemble equipment (ours are starting to fall apart ).
I hope everyone has a safe Labor day!
