September 19th

Good evening!

The Band has shown such drastic improvement in rehearsals this week! Mr. Miller and I have marked the parking lot for everyone’s placements next week, and I will have new music for the students to look at on Tuesday at rehearsal! 

Again, please spread the word about our fundraisers: Kroger Rewards code is QP937 – May River High School Band Booster Club as well as setting your charity selection to May River Band Booster Club when you shop through Amazon for Amazon Smiles! 

I will be sending home a form via email for parents of seniors to fill out soon for Seniors night at the football game on October 2nd. Please be on the lookout for that email. These will need to be filled out right away so the announcer can properly pronounce everyone’s names. 

For the upcoming games, I will need to know who would like to assist at the games. There are only a certain number of those seats we can give out. Those tickets will be free, and you will be seated in chairs near the rest of the band. If you would like to come to the game, but not sit in the chairs on the ground (your seats will be in the stands closest to the band), you will need to pay for those tickets on a certain day (I have been told probably the Monday prior to the game). I have sent that form through Charms if you are interested. We may have 8 parents per game assist us for those free tickets.
