This has been a great first week of school! The Drum Majors have done a great job preparing and running the rehearsals, as well as updating the website and Instagram. Some of the beginning students look very excited to be joining us and have been practicing very hard. Emma Lanzone did a fantastic job working with Aiden Armstrong after school in the band room while Devin Fauver organized the uniform room and music, and Olivia Johnson practiced! Anyone is welcome to meet with others in the band room to practice if you let me know and if I am available! The other new students who have joined us other than Aiden are Lilly Mingus, Isaiah David, Olivia Williams, Arabella Edenfield, Diego Kayser, Even Weber, and Donasia Ling. Welcome to the SILVER SOUND!
Please spread the word about our fundraisers: Kroger Rewards code is QP937 – May River High School Band Booster Club, so you can raise money for us while you shop! Another way to help us out is to simply set your Charity selection to May River Band Booster Club when you shop through Amazon for Amazon Smiles!
We also have boxes of chocolate to sell! Your student should have brought home a flyer with information about it. While we do not want you to go door to door at this time, if you happen to be able to set a box where you work for people to purchase that would be very helpful. We have 25 more boxes to sell! Let me know when I can get a box to your student.
